Obama the cult


Description:

Conservative columnist David Brooks in the NY Times. Obama's people are so taken with their messiah that soon they'll be selling flowers at airports and arranging mass weddings.

Black Eyed Peas are singing the words to an Obama speech in escalating states of righteousness and ecstasy.

Joe Klein in Time magazine, in a piece called Inspiration vs Substance. None too subtle is Joe. Klein also introduced the descriptor "creepy" to Obama-mania. "There was something just a wee bit creepy about the mass messianism ... The message is becoming dangerously self-referential. The Obama campaign all too often is about how wonderful the Obama campaign is.

And although not mentioned in the CNN piece, the truly creepy conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer gets into the act yesterday with this Washington Post column The Audacity of Selling Hope. Interestingly, Obama has been able to win these electoral victories and dazzle crowds in one new jurisdiction after another, even as his mesmeric power has begun to arouse skepticism and misgivings among the mainstream media. ABC's Jake Tapper notes the "Helter-Skelter cultish qualities" of "Obama worshipers," what Joel Stein of the Los Angeles Times calls "the Cult of Obama." Obama's Super Tuesday victory speech was a classic of the genre. Its effect was electric, eliciting a rhythmic fervor in the audience � to such rhetorical nonsense as "We are the ones we've been waiting for. (Cheers, applause.) We are the change that we seek."

    He his a new shiny puppet in the masquerade, and the people have fallen for the show once again. One man does not constitute the whole government, so why believe things are different simply because his office is now in the White House? The same people who ushered him into the W.H. are those who have been running the show for a long time, and if things 'appear' to be different it is because they are simply using a different path to reach the same destination.You can add sugar to my bowl of cereal, but if the milk is off then it's still gonna be crap.
