Even the normally satirical Mark Morford appears to have been sipping the Kool-Aid – envisioning Obama as a Lightworker who will usher in a New Enlightened Era. Seriously, he’s really saying that.
It is something more. Even Bill Clinton, with all his effortless, winking charm, didn’t have what Obama has, which is a sort of powerful luminosity, a unique high-vibration integrity.
Well, pass me the crystals and let’s get in a circle and chant “Om.”
People, Obama is a politician. Not a Godform sent to redeem us. Unreasonably sky high expectations have a way of getting punctured by craggy political realities.
Will Obama be better than Bush? Of course. But come Inauguration Day, he’s won’t be floating down from the heavens to take the oath of office.
The Blue Voice appears as bemused as I am by Morford.
Here we go again, a new “Blair” era. At one point in his spell as “wonderful leader” Blair scored the highest popularity of any Prime Minister in British history, 90%, then he gave us Iraq, lots of home grown sleaze and draconian anti-terror laws that slash at the heart of our civil liberties. “The king is dead, long live the king.”
