We've reached the logical conclusion of the right wing smear machine. The first sentence of this World Net Daily piece reads like a parody of life inside the information bubble:

PALM BEACH, Fla. – With Halloween less than two weeks away, radio giant Rush Limbaugh took a brief moment today to say President Obama looks "demonic" in some wire-service photographs posted online at the Drudge Report.

And Limbaugh himself is beyond parody:

"These pictures, they look demonic. And I don't say this lightly," Limbaugh said as he opened his program.

"There are a couple pictures, and the eyes, I'm not saying anything here, but just look," he remarked about the president who has been campaigning for the re-election of fellow Democrats. "It is strange that these pictures would be released ... it's very, very, very strange."

I got an email on these lines as well. I guess it will help the Christianist turnout. What next, the anti-Christ? Oh, wait ...
