It only makes sense. Obama has King Herrod syndrome. There can only be one king!
There's a character who runs through some Stephen King books that embodies great evil. In Hearts In Atlantis, King tells a tale about a great evil known as The Crimson King. The purpose of The Crimson King is to destroy Jesus Christ by killing/aborting as many babies as possible, the thought being that the second coming of Christ would be a repeat of the birth of Christ. Back when Jesus was born Herrod was The Crimson King of that time period.
