This Barack Obama character is one intriguing guy.
First, he storms onto the national scene and proceeds to rip Hillary’s inheritance out of her grip. Then he practically morphs into a cult of personality. A phenomenon, they are saying. Now he’s doing riffs on Bible interpretation. Turns out the Sermon on the Mount teaches us that homosexuals should be accorded rights as partners in civil unions, while the first chapter of Romans is an obscure part of the Bible that can be easily disregarded. The Obama has spoken. (And go see Blog and Mablog for an excellent thought on what this means for the way our nation thinks of Scripture.)
And now in what is, I suppose, a manifestation of the phenomenology of Obama, there are multiplied scores of new words, neologisms, to describe the Obama experience. Go check out the Encyclopedia Baracktannia. Get a chuckle, but also learn how to enter a political discussion when you need to mention the Barackstar. Or when you exhibit signs of Obamania. Or when you are mesmerized by his Omentum. Or when you are needing to speak to an Obombre.
Somebody please get me a Baracktail.
