Best Obamaphobe (2009)

Wiley Drake

It's hard to pin down what it is about Barry Soetoro—a.k.a. Barack Hussein Obama II, a.k.a. The Usurper, a.k.a. The Big O'Bummer—that has sent conservatives into conniptions across the country. Most likely, it's the fact he was born in an exotic foreign land such as Quebec, Kenya or Hawaii (We can't even be sure which one it is! He hasn't produced a certified copy of his ultrasound signed by the attending physician, his mother and the victorious sperm!!!). Orange County has a bountiful crop of Obama haters, but it's rare that they fully speak their mind about what, exactly, they'd like to see happen to our most colorful president. With Buena Park pastor Wiley Drake, though, there's no fakery. In June, on Alan Colmes' nationally syndicated radio show, Drake said he was praying that Obama would die. Wasn't he worried a comment like that would attract Secret Service attention? "I think it's appropriate to pray for the will of God," Drake replied. "If that puts me on somebody's list, then I'll just have to be on their list." Congrats, Wiley, you made ours—for being honest.
