PBHO is sooooo muchhh larger than life these days; though I still think he's only, uh, human.
I was gonna say his sooooo muchhh larger than life, uh, image is unbelievable; but lots of folks, even guys like Jakes and the sycophantic MSM, have been converted.
Be that as we'll discover sooner or later, I'm betting (lost three on Election 2008) he's not as divine as his fans assume nor as demonic as the more discerning claim.
O.K., here's a bone for the idolizers and demonizers. There is something spiritual about him.
Did you get a load of his White House Chief of Staff's name?
It's gettin' spooky.
One of my favorite saints in our family of faith asked when I'm gonna preach on the second coming.
The chosen one's disciples say it's too late.
Speaking of idolatries, my least favorite local rag - except for the sports writers, one religious writer, and a political writer who makes me think too much which is a decreasing inclination for mainliners like me - is cashing in on PBHO like JJ has on MLK, Jr.
They're offering metal press plates of the, uh, gospel of 11/4 for only $19.95 (if paid in advance) and full-color reprints of their 11/5 front page at recession-proof prices.
But if you go to www.suntimes.com/obama or www.zazzle.com/suntimes, you can get T-shirts, posters, a commemorative DVD of Election Night 2008, First Family Portrait, Obama Flag Poster, Grant Park Poster, and altar (just kidding) at prices that would make Barney Frank blush.
Reprints of Exodus 20 are not available.
Billy Graham was 90 on 11/7.
Son Franklin said "his father's mind remains sharp even as his body continues to fail. But the preacher who has counseled every President beginning with Eisenhower is not in line to mentor Obama."
Speaking of pastors, PBHO's former - wink, wink - pastor Jeremiah Wright is baaaaaack.
In his first public speech since being placed in an isolation chamber so he wouldn't say anything hinting at a close relationship with PBHO which wasn't really that close after 20+ years with at least one wedding and two baptisms, the UCC (sister franchise to PCUSA) forerunner spoke to 1200 Northwestern University whatevers on 11/7.
He began by criticizing the media; and emphasizing how he has been treated so unfairly, he noted, "Ray Charles could see that."
He said PBHO is "a man whom I have admired for 20 years, and whose candidacy I have supported every day, ever since he told me he would run."
I don't get it.
He keeps saying they're tight and he keeps saying they're not.
Somebody can't distinguish facts from fiction.
Kinda like all of that messianic talk.
Be that as it is, what are the odds against JW getting the nod for the inaugural prayer?
Jesus said we gotta be more loyal to Him than anybody else; which everybody in the Church but mainliners knows.
So where does that leave PBHO's aunt who is trying to avoid deportation?
I don't know.
I'm not even sure if that's a good analogy.
Regardless, I was thinking GWB, who (by all accounts except for Keith Ubermacht's whose opinions are as profound as Paris Hilton's) is being extraordinarily gracious in greasing the transitional machinery, could win some points with everybody who voted against him on 11/4 by granting clemency to Zeituni Onyango (PBHO's aunt).
Getting back to Jesus, I just wanted to mention Him in any context just in case more than mainliners are forgetting He is the real One.
Getting back to the keepsakes, "Perhaps you plan to relive the 2008 Presidential election with future generations. But wait, you can't simply toss the newspaper in the den and forget about it - not unless you want it to turn into a nasty shade of yellow and disintegrate. So here are a few tips to preserve your fragment of history: avoid exposure to light..."
Avoid exposure to light.
A slip from The Chicago Sun-Times.
In a related story, I guess this means were gonna see a lot more of SNL's Fred Armisen doing PBHO impersonations than Tina Fey doing Sarah Palin.
By the way, did you hear about SP answering the door in just a towel?
Well, I guess we're gonna find out, sooner or later, how much Election 2008 was about, uh, cover-ups.
"Every knee shall bow, every tongue confess that _____ is Lord..."
Fill in the blank.
Your vote is really gonna count in the end.
Blessings and Love!
