The Beginning of the Gospel of Barak Obama, the Son of God

According to Mark Shea.

This is brilliant! And hilarious! What is astonishing is that so many of the lines are verbatim quotes from pundits and talking heads.

Here are my favorite verses:
1:26 And there appeared another wonder in heaven: Behold! A great dragon in a pantsuit. And her tail drew the third part of the superdelegates, and did cast them into four star restaurants to schmooze them.

1:27 And there was war in heaven: Blessed Michelle fought against the dragon; that old serpent, called Rodham, and Clinton, which deceiveth the whole electorate.

1:28 There were signs in the Sun and moon, and Blessed Michelle appeared unto millions on televisions, iPods, and streaming computers warning that the consummation of all things was at hand and saying "He that is whole needeth not the physician, but he that is sick. Thy broken hearts are restless till they rest in Obama."

1:29 And behold the Good News spread and multiplied, so that the monks of Clooney came to him and declared, "Master! I will follow you wherever you go!" and a sister of the Halle Name went before him, making straight his path, lest at any time Obama dash his foot against a paper cup.
You have to read the original thing, with all the hyperlinks.

GO MARK SHEA!

All hail the Messiah, Our Hope!

Yeah, it's getting more and more difficult to avoid discussing the election on here. I've been advised to go read the Obama and McCain websites and their platforms. I think I shall. At least as a sop to that part of me that likes to think that I am not a single-issue voter. Um. Make that single-issue-non-voter. :) And in all fairness, as a responsible citizen-(to-be), I should take more interest in the Greatest Story Show on Earth. And of course, good ol' Gilbert Keith has wisdom, as always.
The unconscious democracy of America is a very fine thing. It is a true and deep and instinctive assumption of the equality of citizens, which even voting and elections have not destroyed.
