Not God, Just Someone With the Same Skill Set

There are at least two postings at Uncommon Descent (here and here), that argue that fine-tuning of cosmological constants is evidence of a Designer. Evidently the ID party line is that the Designer isn’t necessarily God, but is someone who can change the speed of light, the charge of the electron, and the fine structure constant throughout the universe.

But last year, after Bill Dembski appeared on The Daily Show’s Evolution, Schmevolution, he wrote:

Stewart & Co. had some lines that were not only funny but also memorable. The one that sticks out poked fun at ID: “We’re not saying that the designer is God, just someone with the same skill-set.”
Although the line is funny, it is not accurate.

So please tell us, Bill: how is Stewart’s line inaccurate?
