Is Barack Obama the Messiah?

Now look, I didn’t ask that question and it has never in all creation dawned on me to ask that question. I just copied it from here.

Now if you looked at the article you might have come back a little confused. Is the author serious? The web page is after all, found within the “On Faith” section of the Washington Post. But to answer the question, no, I don’t think they are totally serious.

They do make some fairly astute points about the Obama Effect though. They cite Chris Matthews, who in maybe a little bit of exaggeration (about the 5 year old thing) says this:

“I’ve been following politics since I was about 5. I’ve never seen anything like this. This is bigger than Kennedy. [Obama] comes along, and he seems to have the answers. This is the New Testament. This is surprising.”

And then, if you want to dismiss the whole thing as Obama-rama, then read this blog, a blog that seems to be dedicated to the divinity of Barack.

And THEN, if you want to dismiss the whole thing as Baracka Hoopla, witness the curative powers of The Barack, on this embedded video.

OK, all kidding aside, Barack Obama does have an affect on people. He is coming to Houston tomorrow and will address a packed house at the Toyota Center – an arena that holds 16,000 souls. Tickets are (were) free, were because they’ve been gone since Saturday when the event was announced.

And finally, want still more proof? Take a look at the Obama detractors in the comments section at that WaPo website. Jesus H. Christ himself didn’t have such frenzied critics. The Pharisees and Sadducees have nothing on your typical Clinton supporter. I’ve never seen such venom spewed by one Democrat on another (RE: comment Feb 18 at 1:20). The other day I was in conversation, of sorts, with Democrats and was told under no uncertain terms that the uncultured remarks and vehement attacks from Barack supporters were very low brow, and not very classy at all, whereas Clinton supporters were always kind, thoughtful and courteous.

Beg to differ.
