Interesting article in "The Root" today asking whether, if he's elected, Whites will riot.

My clock is normally set to +01 (seven hours before eastern time), but now i've changed it to eastern just so that I can follow that damn election I'm seriously nervous about it There are so many possibilities
But I've got my bets on Obama as president elect.
Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
I find it interesting that someone would think that the next messiah would be politically based. People believed that when the first messiah (Jesus) came he would be a political one, which is something Jesus avoided like the plague in the New Testament.
I think comparing Obama to Jesus is a questionable analogy on many levels, but I won't deny that the link was interesting at least.
I find this manner of talk about political figures extremely unsettling. Our local liberal paper pretty much described him as the second-coming and that's fanaticism. There's no balance.
Would that be the Indy? Just curious.
When I saw Obama during the primaries, he was late due to weather. The woman who prayed the invocation (at our town hall meeting... wtf???) definitely had some savior language all up ins. I was weirded out to the maxx.
And I like Obama! I'm just sayin'. Weird. As. Shit.
"I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality." -Martin Luther King, Jr.
Obama is the worst president in history until he proves himself otherwise. He's a novelty because he is a bit different from the norm. He's good looking, charismatic and has made bold promises, some of which seem unrealistic. I'll never rep a candidate without reserve until he/she can prove their worth. The race the the white house is just that, a competition. Why not captivate people in whatever manner it takes?
