Jesus and Obama - historical revisionism

The Democrat recently trotted out the comment that "Jesus was a Community organizer and Pontius Pilot was a Governor".  This was done to contrast Obama with Palin.  Here is the problem with the analogy.  Jesus, unlike Obama, was not paid by the government to organize a future Christian community.  Jesus was view with suspicion and eventually executed as a threat to the state.  Pontius Pilot was not a governor but a prefect, an appointed guardian of Roman interests.  Pontius Pilot was not elected by the people he ruled - quite the opposite.
