Oh, the Neologisms, er, Neobamogisms

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.

  2. Incredibly, Barack Obama claims to be a devout Christian. Perhaps what he means is that he is a devout Red Letter Christian. But that can’t be true either, for it seems that he has not read the red letters in another of those obscure passages of scripture, Matthew 19.
    And He [Jesus] answered and said, “Have you not read, that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘for this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh’? Consequently they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”
