A Messiah in Our Midst?


A Messiah in Our Midst?
By Jonah Goldberg

Before we answer that question, let me vent for a moment. In 2000 I was cruelly denied the Pulitzer despite being the only columnist in America to ask the pressing question: Is Al Gore an alien? The evidence was there for all to see. He was born nine months after the mysterious alien sighting at Roswell, N.M. His weird syntax and verbal rhythms are otherworldly. He often refers to "earth" or "this planet" as if he's just passing through, and he once angrily complained to the Washington Post that it had printed a picture of the earth from outer space "upside down."

There is no "upside down" in space - unless Gore had his childhood view in mind.

At least I'm not in the wilderness this time. Lots of people have pondered the possibility that Barack is our Divine Redeemer. There are Web sites dedicated to the question "Is Barack Obama the Messiah?" Google that question and you'll get more than 35,000 hits. (Enter just the words "Messiah" and "Obama" and you'll get nearly 10 times that.)

But there's more concrete evidence. Since Obama declared his candidacy, there have been remarkably few biblical plagues. And lions and lambs seem open to bilateral negotiations.

Is this for real???

"a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Barack."

When asked in an interview what sin is, Obama defined it as "Being out of alignment with my values."

Say it isn't for real, please, because if it is, then we are in much more trouble than I thought. And that's a lot.

If there was ever a time for someone to ask,"Dude, where's my country" now would be it. Jeez!

LOL! I didn't even know there were web sites dedicated to this idiotic subject!

I don't know exactly how tongue-in-cheek Jonah is being; the rest of it was sickening enough!

Nice to see you!

It is pretty paraphrase Reagan;
"I know Jesus Christ, and you are no Jesus Christ!"
But I would say that he has a spirit of antichrist.
:rolling of eyes: It's frightening that there are people who actually believe this nonsense!
Paul-Your question, "Where's my country?" is too true. It disappeared around here, somewhere...
