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.

Obama isn’t like us in the normal way. He’s more like Tom Cruise, in that way.
bump for later.
A “Prince of Light”, indeed.
But the atheists on the Left think he is Christ returned in splendor, and they shout it from the rooftops.
I don’t think I’ve felt that much love for even my own penis.
Maybe Obama is “The Brother From Another Planet.”
Those wild eyed people represent the millions of Americans raised in the government day-care and indoctrination centers we call public schools who did not have, or would not listen to, parents and others who tried to counterweight the garbage they heard at school...who have been raised on 60 second sound bite time spans and know no better.
You have other tens of millions on the dole who will vote for him regardless of position because he promises to keep pilfering the public largess for them.
Still othes of millions will vote for him simply because he is black.
Other millions will vote for him because they know exactly who he is and what he represents and agree with his anti-American positions.
The first three are all what is termed, useful idiots, a term coined by Lenin for the dupes he got to support him.
Against this it is left to us to educate, arouse, and amass the tens of millions of Americans who understand and hold fast to the foundational principles our constitutional republic rests upon...many of them the bitter, rural Americans clinging to their guns and religion that Obama so arrogantly spoke of.
Finally, note this comparison:
Barack Hussein Obama is the apex of the hate-America, domestic enemy in this country. His election as president would be the greatest coup any enemy has ever scored against this country and could easily lead to the worst, horrific disaster in our nation's history.
This is going to be an unbearable 5 months.
I think that columnist Morford is off his medication, or maybe he’s just drunk, or perhaps he fell on his head recently?
Nah, he’s just an all-too-common type of perverted being... a “LightLoafer”, if you will.
You know I hate to get into personal attacks, but I think Obama is ugly. I honestly can’t stand to look at him.
I see him as arrogant, weak with a swelled head and bad temper. It’s been my usual to be a pretty good judge of character.
That's what I thought it said originally...
You are witnessing years of pent up Bush Derangement Syndrome now being released in a torrent of Obamagasms.
Air salad with a side order of sun-dried water.
They lost their minds a long time ago. This is just the latest manifestation. I think these people have managed to sink themselves into despair, and need some sort of false messiah. We live in interesting times.
The only thing prominent about BO is that elevated chin arrogantly protruding into the air.
Watch his eyes.
No matter how much he “smiles”, it never reaches his eyes.
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...
Creepy, no? Do you think there’s a resemblance? I sure did.
Many spiritually advanced people I know identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve.
Get back on your meds, asshat!
Christians will be running for the hills within five years, I guarantee.
I’m already half packed.
They realize that Obama is an empty suit so they have to create an image that is beyond anything that can be touched.
Too much information.
It may well be the truth. You're not a loony; the point of view is actually quite lucid given what we are seeing now.
Now that you mention it, yes.
That movie was extremely disturbing to me on a [seemingly] subliminal level.
Perhaps my subconscious was trying to ‘slap me aware’.
I’m sorry if this sounds weird or judgmental, but ‘he who must not be named’ literally makes my skin crawl.
*Every* time he comes on TV, I instantly change the channel, just as if some violent video of animals or humans being harmed had come on, instead.
I can’t shake that reaction....or even explain it.
Something inside of me reacts [and recoils] as if he were something akin to a mortal enemy or unspeakable evil.
Just me spouting ‘silly woman talk’, I guess.
No, they really believe he is the messiah, a spiritual creature, and ordinary political savvy and effectiveness is not a metric by which you measure messiahs, rather "how in tune with the light" is how you measure messiahs.
