Jon Voight's speech at last night NRCC-NRSC dinner was a carefully crafted jingoist clap-a-thon, larded with dominionist, eschatological messages to stir up the theocratic nutbags, while hitting the usual right wing punching bags: the media, Hollywood, Joe Biden, the stimulus package, Congressional Democrats.

In true rally-the-right fashion, he not only dissed Democrats and Obama, but took it a step further by implying Obama is the Anti-Christ, calling him "this false prophet."
