The Messiah Lord Obama

A friend who sends me lots of blog fodder frequently sends e-mails with the title “The Messiah Lord Obama.” They are full of cartoons and stories about Holy Saviour status most of the media has bestowed on upon him. Today’s was the best one yet.

And it came to pass, in the eighth year of the reign of the evil Bush the Younger (The Ignorant), when the whole land from the Arabian desert to the shores of the Great Lakes had been laid barren, that a Child appeared in the wilderness.

The Child was blessed in looks and intellect. Scion of a simple family, offspring of a miraculous union, grandson of a typical white person and an African peasant. And yea, as he grew, the Child walked in the path of righteousness, with only the occasional detour into the odd weed and a little blow.

. . .

And the Child spake and the tribes of Nato immediately loosed the Caveats that had previously bound them. And in the great battle that ensued the forces of the light were triumphant. For as long as the Child stood with his arms raised aloft, the enemy suffered great blows and the threat of terror was no more.

This is one of the best commentaries I’ve seen on the Obama Phenomena. You can read it all here.

It just occurred to me that “Obama Phenomena” would sound great sung to this tune:

Update:  After listening to this, I realize that “Obama Phenomena” doesn’t quite fit.  But if we go with the current trend of jamming words together to create new ones, we can shorten the phrase to Obamana, which fits perfectly.
