Obama the Messiah

Rush Limbaugh refers to Barack Obama as the Messiah, jokingly obviously. He is not alone in ridiculing the way that Obama is portrayed as a Messianic figure. This article in the UK Times is a great mockery of the whole thing.

I'm a big fan of the Top 11 lists put together by Nihilist in Golf Pants. Here are The Top 11 Things Overheard on Barack Obama's Word Tour:

7. Hey, how about a shot of me driving that tank?

6. When do we go out looking for Osama?

5. Which way is Mecca, and where's my prayer mat?

4. You know, work really DOES make one free!

3. It is time for Americans to pursue a humble and peace-loving outlook, the kind of outlook the Germans have always had.

2. I would like to apologize for America’s roll in wrecking that nice wall you used to have here.

1. Ich bin ein appeaser.

I also like #12 left by commenter Terry_Jim: "Can I ,Uh, get me a terrorist huntin' license here?"
