Posted on 06/06/2008 7:27:45 PM PDT by Mobile Vulgus
Well, I have come to the conclusion that Mark Morford of the San Francisco Chronicle just threw away the last tiny shred of credibility he might have had left by dreamily imagining that Barack Obama is so omniscient, so "ethereal" and so messiah-like that he isn't a "normal" human being. Maybe Mark thinks he might be an alien from another planet, some trans-dimensional traveler, or maybe an angel come down in human form to lead us sheep into the promised land? I'm not exaggerating either. In his latest piece he calls Obama a "Rare Kind of Attuned Being," a "Lightworker," he says he is "ethereal" and "magical" -- hello Rush Limbaugh -- and feels that Obama is "not really one of us" in the "normal way." Morford and those who feel like him have lost all touch with reality and the sickness is spreading.
I think that columnist Morford is off his medication, or maybe he's just drunk, or perhaps he fell on his head recently? Or perhaps Shirley MacLaine came down off the mothership and stole Mark's computer... something freaky is going on there in San Francisco, anyway. Or maybe what makes me think something weird is in the air out there is just that Morford's latest editorial is one of the most amazing examples of the wild eyed ranting of the most whacked out Obamessiah believers yet to show up in print instead of just on the nutrooter blogs. Instead of appearing in a purportedly legitimate newspaper, this is the fodder for the fantasy land of a Coast to Coast with George Noory. Instead of serious political discussion, this sort of thing belongs on Jerry Springer.
But get ready to see this sort of insane euphoria spread as Obamessiah dons his no lapel flag vestments and deigns to appear before the people who love him unconditionally, uncritically, and uninformed of anything he really stands for.
I won't bore you with his whole, nutty piece, but here are just some of the lowlights of Morford's slavish devotion to the political Svengali that is Barack Obama.
Have you lost your lunch yet? Well, you may not have lost your lunch, but this pseudo religious tripe may be proof that Morford has lost his sanity!
Naturally, Morford had to revel a bit in his Bush Derangement Syndrome and regurgitated several slams against Bush, but the real message of this rambling little editorial was in this one little segment nestled deep in Morford's ranting.
(not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual)
And there you have it. Like most extremists, leftists Morford pretends to stand against religion when all the while he is looking for something man made to replace it. Acting as if he is too smart, too cool for superstitious religion, Morford replaces centuries old teachings with this whacked out, new agie, childishness in this case built on a mere politician. But, even as he creates his newfangled religion, like all leftists, he has to attack everyone else who subscribes to a real religion. He must belittle, degrade and ridicule religious people everywhere.
Of course, Morford realizes how silly he sounds to be as starstruck as a 13 year-old girl that is infatuated with the latest rock-n-roll boy band. He even gets so defensive about it he preemptively calls everyone one who will look at him askance all sorts of names.
This is what I find myself offering up more and more in response to the whiners and the frowners and to those with broken or sadly dysfunctional karmic antennae - or no antennae at all - to all those who just don't understand and maybe even actively recoil against all this chatter about Obama's aura and feel and MLK/JFK-like vibe.
I see, so if you don't "get" the Obamessiah fever you are "sadly dysfunctional"? It seems to me that Morford is working himself up to consider "unbelievers" in the same way Torquemada did in the 15th century! Is Morford too far from burning Obama deniers at the stake?
This sort of unrealistic, deification of Barack Obama is the sort of thing that can easily propel him into the White House. It is also the sort of thing that can cause people to imagine his presidency to have been, in hindsight, a bitter disappointment. What sane person cannot realize the expectations for an Obamessiah are simply impossible for Barack to live up to?
You think Clinton's years in office were retrospectively considered the most wasted opportunity in a life time? Wait until a president Obamessiah turns the big White House key over to a Republican to hear the lamentations of the faithful begin to ring out. The "bitterness" will likely be unbearable.
So, I have an idea. Let's defeat Obamessiah and forego all the gnashing of teeth and wearing of sackcloth that will surely be the result of an Obama presidency!
And if Mark Morford has a nervous breakdown because of it all... well, I don't know about you, but I am willing to risk that happening.

Someone once said the empty vessel makes the greatest sound.
Yes. And my dinner too.
I have thought the same thing, because the Bible says there will be those that are fooled by someone that promises peace etc....and of course his followers REALLY are loony—not you!
You got it right in one line. These people, these hard leftists, have in Obama a spiritual thrill they've not experienced since they first quoted Marx to get back at their mommies and daddies when they first went to college.
This is their god. Socialism/Marxism is their religion. Hatred for normal American values is their creed. Bigotry is their sacrament.
They are the enemy.
They are cultists, always have been. Lurking in the fringes, getting fat on our taxes and using their positions to indoctrinate the weak and attack the patriotic, these are the remnants of the sixties. Look at them, know them. These are the enemy - they are no longer opponents. They're not the gasbags we've thought could be tolerated until they fade into senility. They're creepy socialist cultists and they've decided that things have changed sufficiently for them to throw off their facades of near-bearable, silly kookiness and are now showing their true Red colors.
If Obama gets in, these people will be aching to eliminate any and all opposition. And they'll think that the socialist god himself (Obama) will bless whatever they do.
Frankly, this kind of thing makes me terrified, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.
Has anybody here seen “Six Degrees of Separation,” which was about a sociopath who told people what they wanted to hear and then took over their lives and destroyed them? Watch it and tell me if you think the main character reminds you of somebody...
Barack Carpathia Obama wows them again.
OMG....I just watched that about a month ago.
I agree. I thought it was tough during the Clinton years. I couldn't stand to hear his voice. I would run to the radio to turn it off when I heard him speak. His constant lies and spinning of the truth literally made my stomach turn. But I find that Obama causes an even stronger reaction. He is such an obvious fraud that I can not comprehend why so many people are taken in by his mantras of “hope” and “change”. Meanwhile, Obama appears to glory in the adulation of his brainless followers, something which I find even more disgusting.
Here’s something scarier about “empty vessels”;
“When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.
Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.” (Matthew 12: 43-45)
A prince of “Light in the Loafers”.
it’s a new religion.
Once you get to “Morford,” you know what tripe you’re in for.
I’m sure the Morfordite would like some “alone time” with the snobamessiah.
They are not just seeking political change, they are seeking radical transformation of our society.
Oh, trust me...Markie dashed off, a la Rip Taylor on ecstasy, into the fields of madness a long time ago. Just goes to show you how much brain damage blunt-force trauma to the lower GI tract can cause in some people.
“These people are losing their minds!”
No great loss.
ROTFLMAO! You owe me a new monitor.
Shoot, I had him pegged more like the Angel of Darkness...
