Now this is just getting silly. This is the art for a Salon article titled Obama's double magic.|
As Barack would say 'Look!' I support Obama for a number of reasons, none of which are so original that they bear repeating here. But he really is just a guy, and a politician at that. He may be elected President of the United States, and in that position he'll do his level best to run the government and motivate Congress to Do The Right Thing on all the problems the country faces. But he is NOT Jebus, or Tinkerbell, or Clarence the Angel from "It's a Wonderful Life."
All I'm saying is that people in the chattering classes have been OD'ing on the Koolaid and need to chill the fuck out.
