We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Tomorrow is (obviously) Sunday, so we thought you might want to know before you go to church that Newsweek has declared Obama to be God. Silly me to imagine Newsweek to be a secular humanist rag, when they are seeking a god like everybody else.
I doubt that the O is God: he seems too ignorant to be God but, on the other hand, he does resemble a dark Narcissus. He might be a naiad or one of those Greek metrosexual things that skitter through the forest.
"He might be a naiad or one of those Greek metrosexual things that skitter through the forest."
Then "The Afternoon of a Faun" is more appropriate than "Hail to the Chief". And considering the sheer number of media Elois who seem to sparkle at the very mention of his hole(y) name, the melody would be much more suitable to their senstive ears.
I don't think Zero is God, either. I can't imagine God would have a total drunk as a father, for one thing. Nor a crazy white woman for a mother. If he's got any Greek blood, he might well be a piper of some type. Someone claimed just recently he's got German blood. In addition to many other kinds of blood.
If the economy keeps sputtering like it is, and folks finally make a connection between the One and the economy, which hasn't happened yet, his popularity will come tumbling down. I don't see how this can fail to happen as just in the energy sector alone no real solutions are being proposed.
