Charles Krauthammer is not having any of this creepy cultish Obama nonsense. In his new column, “Obama Casts His Spell” (that is the real headline), the Washington Post blowhard says he’s the only wrong-about-everything right-wing realist who can escape the bewitching African charms of this Democratic presidential “hopeful.” That means, somehow, that Barack Obama will “charm” his way into power. And then oh my god exactly 24 hours after President Hussein Obama is sworn in ….
To prove his point, Krauthammer, uhh, approvingly quotes James Wolcott and slams organized religion:
And now, in the most amazing trick of all, a silver-tongued freshman senator has found a way to sell hope. To get it, you need only give him your vote. Barack Obama is getting millions.
This kind of sale is hardly new. Organized religion has been offering a similar commodity — salvation — for millennia. Which is why the Obama campaign has the feel of a religious revival with, as writer James Wolcott observed, a “salvational fervor” and “idealistic zeal divorced from any particular policy or cause and chariot-driven by pure euphoria.”
Ha, you thought we were exaggerating, didn’t you? But Charles Krauthammer really did approvingly quote James Wolcott while slamming organized religion. What’s up Chuck? Are you trying out for Daily Kos?
And because Americans are the kind of liberal idiots who always fall for this religion bullshit, Krauthammer says the cunning witch doctor Obama will hex us all into voting for him, and then he shall unleash his “black magic” upon our doomed nation:
Democrats are worried that the Obama spell will break between the time of his nomination and the time of the election, and deny them the White House. My guess is that he can maintain the spell just past Inauguration Day. After which will come the awakening. It will be rude.
