I missed one irony in the Jesus/Pilate flap, pointed out by James Taranto
- Cohen is Jewish.
To our mind, though, the bigger blunder consists in likening Obama to Jesus. Cohen is not a Christian, which means he does not believe Jesus is the Messiah. But most Americans do, making this a problematic comparison given that some of Obama's critics have accused him of having a messiah complex.
Even more problematic: Cohen's analogy likens his political ally Obama to a man his faith regards as a false prophet.
