The Obama Mesiah Watch

We have been following Obama for two years now, and I do believe that his participation in the race for democratic nomination and potentially the 2008 presidential election will be educational and inspirational for many Americans. I just picked up his latest book, The Audacity of Hope, to fine tune my understanding of his vision for the nation. I am afraid, however, that his media light is shining so brightly at present that he may extinguish prematurely.

Punctuating this thought, Slate introduced a periodic feature that highlights gratuitously adoring biographical details of Obama. Definitely a classic, along with these T-shirts entitled “Barackstar” from Sharp as Toast. It is the first T they’ve ever printed with a living political figure on them ’cause Mr. Toast thinks Barack’s “neat.” Well you can’t argue with that. In fact, it seems that Slate’s John Dickerson throws in his own gratuitous adoration in his analysis of Barack’s ultra-smooth intro to the Bears vs Saints game on Damned Spot. Also worth watching.
