Is Barack Obama the Messiah? Part One

"... a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany ... and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama" - Barack Obama Lebanon, New Hampshire.

It's a funny thing about cults, members never know they are in one even as they are repeatedly warned that they are.

Not long ago at a Hollywood fundraiser,

"When Morgan Freeman comes over to greet Obama, the senator begins bowing down both hands in worship. `This guy was president before I was,' says Obama, referring to Freeman's turn in Deep Impact and, clearly, getting a little ahead of his own bio. Next, a nod to Bruce Almighty: `This guy was God before I was.'"

Hmmm..

Over a year ago 'Slate' started up the "The Obama Messiah Watch", a periodic feature considering evidence that Obama is the son of God.

Timothy Noah kicked it off this way:

Is Barack Obama--junior U.S. senator from Illinois, best-selling author, Harvard Law Review editor, Men's Vogue cover model, and "exploratory" presidential candidate--the second coming of our Savior and our Redeemer, Prince of Peace and King of Kings, Jesus Christ? His press coverage suggests we can't dismiss this possibility out of hand. I therefore inaugurate the Obama Messiah Watch, which will periodically highlight gratuitously adoring biographical details that appear in newspaper, television, and magazine profiles of this otherworldly presence in our midst.

Now there is an entire website dedicated to prove to you that Obama IS the Messiah.{or close enough for government work}

And some say that Irony died on 9/11

One of the weirder examples of "Obamacrats as holy followers /Cultists" was when Stevie Wonder had that Obama crowd in Los Angeles at the oprah/Opama/Kennedy-fest singing "Ba-a-rack O-ba-a-ma" in the style of one of those eerie monk chanting CDs that became popular a while back.

But in the land of "All Things Obama", that was nothing.  Of course we all have heard about how Obama aides are instructed to talk  to voters abut their "coming to Obama" moment and not policy points. We've seen the footage of the Obama supporters who when asked why they support Obama can't answer with any specifics and are mute until they  - go all  slogan-y about "hope" and "bunnies" or some such...

But hey! Who needs specifics, when you've got BAM!?

{Non-Obamacrats prepare to get creeped out.  Obamacrats prepare too get all weepy}

This is what much of the Obama 'movement' is all about...

I recieved this email from someone on the listserv at Charleston for Obama...and with his permission I am posting it here. I have attended 7 Obama rallies here in SC and this email captured the feeling I have had at each and every rally. It is something beautiful and something BIG....Pass it on. :)

THE BAM"... PASS IT ON AT THE NEXT OBAMA RALLY!

Having caught "Obama fever" like so many others rallying in support of Barack, I experienced something at a Barack Obama Rally  which I felt was both inspirational and spontaneous!

As Barack worked the line following the close of his speech, there was a surge of people moving forward hoping to get close enough to shake Barack's hand. Since I was standing about 20 feet back from center stage in the crowd, I felt the crowd down front tighten as many of us stood on our toes, stretched our bodies forward while reaching out to Barack. I noticed that a six foot tall guy who was standing in front of me had stretched far enough above the crowd and shook hands with Barack. As the guy drew back his hand I asked him, "You shook his hand didn't you?" Happily the guy said "Yes." I then said, "give me some of that" and the guy shook my hand with the same hand he had just clasped with Barack's. A woman friend of mine who was standing next to me saw me shake hands with the guy. I turned to her and said "He just shook hands with Barack," to which she responded..."Hey, give it up." We then shook hands. She then turned to the person next to her and shook hands. This chain of hand shakes went on for about five or six more persons.

I did not know the tall guy in front of me; he is white, I am black. But at the moment we shook hands, I felt some solidarity with this stranger, consummated by a handshake and signifying some unspoken agreement presumably about Barack Obama and his core message of UNITY!

I call this hand-shake scenario the "BAM" because, descriptively, it takes a bit of Obama's name and it's the sound of a collision, of People Coming Together!

Bamboozled: How Obama has been Plagiriazing Spike Lee / Malcolm X

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2 008/02/17/673670.aspx

Last week, an obviously disturbed, if not deranged, Obama supporter heckled President Clinton during his speech in WI and afterwards while accosting him in the rope line, quoted Barack Obama (who was quoting Spike Lee who pretended to be quoting Malcolm X )to the former President. He said Bill Clinton has been "bamboozling and hoodwinking" the American people.

Now ain't that odd?

Why is it that ever since South Carolina Obama is "borrowing" (ie.plagariazing) certain words of Spike Lee, without credit, in speech after speech after speech?


Is it OK because Spike is his "buddy" too?  Or is Obama "really" trying to say that Malcolm is.....?

Obama(s): I'm Really Proud to be a (Plagiarist)

On Monday Michelle Obama said that now that America is on the cusp of selecting her husband to be President, that for the first time  in her life, she's finally "proud to be an American."

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Speaking in Milwaukee, Wis., on Monday, she said:

"People in this country are ready for change and hungry for a different kind of politics and ... for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback."

Obama delivered an amended version of the speech later that day in Madison, Wis.

"For the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country ... not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change," she said. "I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment."

Obama was born in 1964, meaning her adult life began in 1982.

Video of Hillary STILL waffling on Cleveland debate LIVE on NBC affiliate TODAY
Submitted by Tim Russo on Tue, 02/12/2008 - 7:23pm.

http://www.buckeyestateblog.com/video_of _hillary_still_waffling_on_cleveland_deb ate_live_on_nbc_affiliate_today

This is the picture of a campaign self-destructing. The video is positively cringe-making.

Hillary was on live on WKYC today, the Cleveland NBC affiliate, bobbing and weaving on the Cleveland State debate on Feb. 26. By my count, she agreed to a debate in Ohio 9 full days ago - the David Shuster pimpfest has been going on almost a week, and she is STILL playing some kind of weird victim game with the premier political reporter in Cleveland TV, Tom Beres. Beres literally begs her at the end to commit to the debate. She doesn't.

For a candidate who raised the biggest "debate me" stink I've seen in years after Super Tuesday, this is truly some of the most petulant behavior you can imagine from someone running for president. It has now become a self-parody. What an embarrassment. Here's the vid.

RACE WAR! How Frank Rich PIMPS the Race Card for Obama

I'm in Baltimore tonight visiting with the incomparable Daily Howler, Charm City's scourge of  media lies. He said it would be fine if I put up today's very important howler for discussion.

By the way, if you think I am using the word "pimp" to call Frank Rich a "Media Whore", you are right, I am."

November Polls, First Time Voters, Women, Girls & Hillary

When I pull the lever for Hillary on Tuesday, I will think of this girl who was photographed rooting for Hillary outside a Nevada Caucus

-------------------

I saw another diary here today worrying about NOVEMBER POLLS (!?)and wondering about the effect of "Independents" on a general election between either Hillary or Obama and John McCain.

Here, in short, is what another diarist writes about this here at myDD today:

The consensus view as to why there is such a discrepancy is, as Rasmussen's analysis makes clear:

   Obama leads McCain among voters not affiliated with either major political party. McCain leads Clinton among the unaffiliateds.

When will we stop listening to the totally worthless pundit CW? Folks, no offense but, I thought the "netroots" were supposed to represent the "reality based community".  NOVEMBER tracking polls!!?? After we've all seen the absolute failures of polling and punditry so far, where's the "reality" in looking at polled predictions of NOVEMBER voting!?

The value of the "netroots" OBVIOUSLY is as activists, not analysts. If that is so, what the heck are people doing wondering and worrying about polls that, in reality, mean ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, nada, less than zero, to us today. Please stop,please!?

-------------------

Here's the real reality folks.

-------------------

The entire plan and basis of Hillary's special strength in the general election will be with previously non voting, working single women and single Moms who will see Hillary as uniquely caring about them, their families and their problems. Many millions of these women will register and be voting for both Hillary and themselves in November.

Obviously, at first, these "non voters" will have no party. So I think we can safely call these new voters "independents" too.

This is known as "growing the electorate".
