The Messiah Has No Clothes?
Interesting Column from Gerald Warner over at the Daily Telegraph, definitely a good read, and definitely a good viewpoint to consider
The burnt child, contrary to conventional wisdom, does not fear the fire. After the Blair experience there is no excuse for anybody in Britain falling for Obama. Yet today, in this country, even some of those who remained sane during the emotional spasm of the Diana aberration are pumping the air for Princess Barack. At a time of gross economic and geopolitical instability throughout the Western world, this is beyond irresponsibility.
I definitely think all the Obama Mania is really going to far, at this point it has definitely jumped the shark. Obama Commemorative Plates in Illinois? The man hasn't even been president for a full month yet, commemorative coins etc. All the mania about him being the first 'black president' is really un-necessary as well, I think it really would've said more about America f there had been no mania about him being "Black", it would have said more if it hadn't been mentioned at all. I mean really, the news-worthyness of a story about a president, or even a candidates ethnicity should be about the same as the news-worthyness of a candidates Necktie.
Check it out, and feel free to rant and rave in the comments.
