Paul Bremer as Pilate, 1

Today is Ash Wednesday, the day that Mel Gibson's movie The Passion of The Christ opened at theatres. (I noticed a student with a smudge on her forehead and almost called her attention to it--then I caught myself!)

I am waiting for all the political bloggers to leap on this:

Paul Bremer, US administrator in Iraq = Pontius Pilate?

The Ayatolla al-Sistani = the Jewish high priest Caiphas?

Rampaging mobs of followers of an Abrahamc religion = rampaging mobs of followers of an Abrahamic religion?
