Left-wing media wankers founding new religion on Obama

The journalistic fellatio coming from the left on Barack Obama's improbable win last night has become positively nauseating. As I've mentioned before, I believe Obama is probably an honest, decent man. I'm pretty sure Jerry Garcia was, too, but I wouldn't have wanted him to be President.

But according to Chris Matthews of MSNBC's Hardball, Obama has been "delivered" to us, sort of like, you know, Jesus.

And some kid by the name of Ezra Klein at American Prospect surely had to change his bed sheets after writing this totally over-the-top bit of journalism blow-jobbery:
Obama's finest speeches do not excite. They do not inform. They don't even really inspire. They elevate. They enmesh you in a grander moment, as if history has stopped flowing passively by, and, just for an instant, contracted around you, made you aware of its presence, and your role in it. He is not the Word made flesh, but the triumph of word over flesh, over color, over despair. The other great leaders I've heard guide us towards a better politics, but Obama is, at his best, able to call us back to our highest selves, to the place where America exists as a glittering ideal, and where we, its honored inhabitants, seem capable of achieving it, and thus of sharing in its meaning and transcendence.
I hope Obama respects him in the morning.

I picked it up from my Brit friends, where else? :-)

I go to England a few times a year, and the first time I heard it I thought it was such a perfect word for certain types of people.

It's a good thing for us that we still have English influence on American English language.

Me too, I read that and thought i didn't know the word 'wanker' was said in America. (Tosser is another good one...)

That was a funny post,

Isn't this all about Obama as a black JFK?
