John Kerry: Stem-Cell Messiah!

The Kerry campaign just can't seem to stop making goofy statements. This one is from running mate John Edwards:

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist attacked Sen. John Edwards on Tuesday over a comment the Democratic vice presidential candidate made regarding actor Christopher Reeve.

Edwards said Reeve, who died Sunday, "was a powerful voice for the need to do stem cell research and change the lives of people like him.

"If we do the work that we can do in this country, the work that we will do when John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve will get up out of that wheelchair and walk again," Edwards said.

Kerry is reported to have replied: "Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor."

Oh, wait. That was a different John.

And a different Messiah.

UPDATE: Cranky Neocon fights sacrilege with sacrilege. With apologies to the real Messiah, of course. (Via Jane)
