Isn't it great to know that all the major problems we thought we faced in the future--the economy, war, terrorism, "global warming," etc.--are all behind us?
According to Sen. Obama, the war in Iraq has already begun to end, our nation is--thanks to his nomination--secure from terrorism, the Earth is healing itself and even the rising tides are turning back.
All this, just from Barack Obama's victory in the Democratic primaries. Imagine how great things are going to get once he's actually president. It'll be Christmas every day!
Don't believe it? Just ask a Barack Obama supporter. They do.
Here, for example, is Mark Morford in the San Francisco Chronicle--the paper of record of the Loony Left:
No, it's not merely his youthful vigor, or handsomeness, or even inspiring rhetoric. It is not fresh ideas or cool charisma or the fact that a black president will be historic and revolutionary in about a thousand different ways. It is something more. Even Bill Clinton, with all his effortless, winking charm, didn't have what Obama has, which is a sort of powerful luminosity, a unique high-vibration integrity...
Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) 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. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul.
UPDATE: WTKK listeners are adding to the list of things they're looking forward to once Sen. Obama wins the White House:
Stephen: All that stuff is great but I really can't wait for the free ice cream.
Kathy: Don’t forget leaping tall buildings in a single bound!!!
Barbara: I am canceling my laser hair removal treatments and throwing away my razors. Along with the oceans receding, the hair on my legs will fall off.
David: WOW! If he can do all that and get my 4 year old to go straight to bed he’s got my vote.
