Okay, This "Obama Messiah" Sketch is Just Too Silly

Are they really doing that? I mean this must be a photoshop satire, right?

I think it is called hubris.

And, yes, they are really doing it.

Robohobo, seriously, is that real? I don't believe they would actually compare obama to Christ.

You got that backwards - Try Christ to Obama.

Not only is this picture NOT a photoshop; not only does the stage look like an altar with a gigantic high-tech crown above and behind it; not only are there faint but definite "journey of the magi" allusions; but worst (or best) of all, from at least one angle you can see devil horns too.

The slavering Obamaddicts will of course be in a frenzy seeing their savior take this stage. The rest of America is more likely to cringe at the unseemliness of this mega-pop music video annointing of the new czar of sanctimoniousness.

Personally, I love the stage. It will scare off several million previously undecided middle Americans, if that many are still awake after Biden's speeches. The only thing Americans resent more that being bored is being hectored.

When the poll numbers come in right after the Democratic Convention, the high priests of new-age snake-oil treatments may be surprised to hear just what flyover America thinks of them.

At this rate McCain can simply watch Obama and the Democratic Party Apparatchiks strut their way to a loss on November 4. A few sharply focused reminders of the Obidiocies and quick reproofs against liberal smears and lies will be all we need. A female VP would put this in the bag for the Republicans. Calling Kay Bailey Hutchison........

The creepy thing is, Venus really does shine like that over the mountains.

Oh, but the color scheme is grand! Just think what those same designers will do with the White House.

Reminds me of that stylized re-do of official branding that Britain undertook back in the late 1990s. Very fruity and disgraceful.

It looks like "Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind."
Mainly cuz you know Richard Dreyfuss will probably show up.

Imagine how much they wish they could make that a red star.

The scary part is that so many are apparently going to vote for these clowns.
