By now I’m sure that we have all heard the Messianic claims of “The One”. You know, things like “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal” or “a light will shine down, from somewhere, it will light upon you, you will experience an epiphany and you will say to yourself, I have to vote for Barack” (outlined ever so subtly in this McCain ad). And its clear by the undying devotion of the Obamatrons that he is not the only one who believes that he has “become a symbol of America returning to our best traditions”.
But it seems that Obama is tired of being seen as a mere Messiah and wants to go for a somewhat more mythical appearance. Or atleast that’s what the stage at his inaugural spe… opps, I mean nomination acceptance speech would imply.
You see Obama has opted out of the traditional setting for an acceptance speech, (you know, big American flag, flashy American styled graphics on big screen tvs, American themed confetti and ballons falling from the ceiling) for a style more fitting of a Greek god (you know, big greek pilars, 80,000 cheering worshipe… opps, I mean supporters in a massive stadium, an epic finish with thousands of explosions that light up the sky and leave people in majestic awe… otherwise know as fireworks).
But hey the Messiah tag isn’t Obama’s fault, its McCain’s, right? So this Greek god talk must be McCain’s fault too! Right, OK wait… No. Actually, Obama’s Greek god status is apparently nothing compaired to McCain’s wealth. Yea, that one is gonna stick…
