HWJV? How Would Jesus Vote?

Ed Schultz of MSNBC believes that Jesus would vote for government public option in health care. Some commenters are crying blasphemy; some are objecting to the breach of the separation of church and state.

I have considered the matter and concur with Mr. Schultz at least in part. Some exegetes aver that Jesus would especially be in favor of 'death panels.' Revelation 9:16 states,
"So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, were released to kill a third of mankind."
These same exegetes claim that Jesus also supports Card Check. Hebrews 4:13 states,
"And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account."
Unfortunately many of these same Biblical scholars are saying that Jesus says, "Don't bother" with Cap & Trade. Revelation 8:7-11,
"The first angel blew his trumpet and there followed hail and fire mixed with blood, and these were thrown upon the earth. And a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up. The second angel blew his trumpet and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. A third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. The third angel blew his trumpet and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from the water, because it had been made bitter."
That is the equivalent level of quality of the Biblical exegesis of Ed Schultz and many others who have been wondering, "What would the Jesus that I have created do?"
