Obamamania

Okay, I’m not a kook. I don’t think this guy is the Antichrist, I don’t think he’s the ruin of America, and I don’t think that he’s a future tyrant. However, I have to admit I find the utter and complete obsession with this guy amazing.

Yes, I recognize that many people are excited about the fact that he is the first black president. I recognize the historical meaning. However, I find myself annoyed at people’s reaction to our new president.

A lot has been said about the obvious media obsession, including this article in the Washington Post which includes the Embarrasing line:

“The sun glinted off chiseled pectorals sculpted during four weightlifting sessions each week, and a body toned by regular treadmill runs and basketball games.”

I would expect that from a fan, or some blog, BUT THE WASHINGTON FREAKIN POST?

Look at this Children’s book

WTF?

Halle Berry (who on an unrelated note is a total fox) is quoted:

“I’ll do whatever he says to do,” actress Halle Berry said to the Philadelphia Daily News. “I’ll collect paper cups off the ground to make his pathway clear.”

George Clooney is a disciple:

“He walks into a room and you want to follow him somewhere, anywhere,”

A performance artist put a statue of Obama on a donkey and laid palm fronds in his path in a sick mockery of the Triumphant entry of Christ into Jerusalem.

Seriously, This country is FUCKING CRAZY!

HE’S JUST THE DAMN PRESIDENT. I hope he does well. I hope he strengthens the country’s economy and keeps us safe from foreign threats, but DAMN.

Damn!

    I agree with you, it’s gone a bit insane. Maybe things will calm down. I’m really hoping so. He is just a politician.

    I kinda disagree Ocean, erm I think this is too ott. They are treating him more like a celebrity than a president. They have gone ott about him before he started running the country like he is the world savior or something. He’s barely been in office. Probably a nice guy himself and hopefully a good president but the hype is insane. The higher they go the harder the fall. I hope he doesn’t fall.

    *mentions Jean-Claude Van Damme but not you*
