Is it the Onion, or is it Newsweek?

From Gerard by way of Lawyn, Obama Practices Looking-Off-Into-Future Pose

Then we go to Betsy, who recognized That Obama pose of nobility and saw this in Newsweek's cover story:
And now, two weeks later, he's on the cover again with a bit of light surrounding his head in that convenient halo effect that seems to surround so many pictures of Obama.

Jim Geraghty was in Ed's podcast yesterday and said that judging by his press coverage, Obama was born in a manger. Yes indeed, and his cohorts cloak him in Old Testament armor, too: Congresswoman Gwen Moore was saying that Obama wears
"The breastplate of hope. Wielding the shield of unity. Carrying the sword of truth. And feet marching to the beat of change!"
While Leviticus reads,
As shoes for your feet put on whatever will make you ready to proclaim the gospel of peace.
And what better than these shoes can proclaim the gospel of peace when marching to the beat of change?
[CORRECTION: Patrick emailed to say,
Actually, it is St. Paul, Ephesians 6:15, who is making a reference to Isaiah 52:7.
If only I knew Scripture as well as I do shoes...]

I wonder what shoes Obama will wear to that trip to Iraq now that McCain has challenged him to see the facts in the country.

Doug Ross has more on Obama.

I'm heading to the Americans for Prosperity Defending the Dream conference this morning.

In the meantime, please vote for my podcast at the Best of Blogs Best Podcast/Video category. Thanks!

Thanks for the link!

All this Obama-obsession is getting pretty nauseating, isn't it?

Let me know how the conference is...there was one in ATL the first of the month. While I really wanted to go, I couldn't get out of a family obligation, even just for a little while.

Halo effects on pictures. Comparisons with knights in shining armors. The next thing we might hear is some sort of Holy Spirit descending over him like a dove...

The moment we start hearing people say that Barack Obama Is The Solution To All Of Our Problems, beware. There might come a time for... "scalp-checking"...

The first time I saw one of his posters I realized that either his followers were truly fanatics waiting for their chance at the brass ring or had hired an extremely well versed graphic artist in Roman iconography and portraiture. At least for the time being the allusion is to the princeps, the first man of America, above mere patriotic symbology by being closer to God. When he begins to appear with the gaze that is all suffering and is fixed on higher forms then I'm going to get worried. And when the laurel wreath and aegis appears it will be too late.
