Messiah Obama

Here's an amusing/disturbing parody of the Obama-as-messiah-mania. All good satire must contain a hint of truth. The truths in this piece are very uncomfortable.

...And lo, in Mesopotamia, a miracle occurred. Even though the Great Surge of Armour that the evil Bush had ordered had been a terrible mistake, a waste of vital military resources and doomed to end in disaster, the Child's very presence suddenly brought forth a great victory for the forces of the light.

Suddenly, now that Obama has admitted the surge has worked, it is official and the Iraq war has been won.

...From there the Child went up to the city of Jerusalem, and entered through the gate seated on an ass. The crowds of network anchors who had followed him from afar cheered “Hosanna” and waved great palm fronds and strewed them at his feet.

The media's love affair with Obama - see clips of media reactions to him here - I know you won't like the source, but it doesn't make it any less true

...And they told of strange and wondrous things that greeted the news of the Child's journey. Around the world, global temperatures began to decline, and the ocean levels fell and the great warming was over.

...In hospitals across the land the sick were cured even though they were uninsured. And all because the Child had pronounced it.

That one is the most frightening because Obama himself made claims like this in his nomination victory speech:

"... this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal ..."

SCARY!!! This guy actually believes he is the messiah!
