Your awesome Obama picture of the day: It's true! He's "The One"

Anybody else sick of what is beginning to look like a concerted effort on the part of news photographers to capture Obama with a halo or in poses that make him appear like some kind of religious figure?:

Forgive them, The Blessed One, for they know not what they say! They of Toronto believe that segregation is the only way to ensure racial peace and equality, and that Holocaust Denial is a subject for debate. You hath given us the hope and the courage to seek change. Amen.

If that doesn't fill you with chope, nothing will.

Wow! This is fantastic! It fits very nicely with my thesis that politicians are the present-day priests, selling snake oil to a gullible populace in order to fleece them of their money.

Blasphemer! Heretic!! Thou shalt not besmirch the name of The One! I'll get the stake ready.

You would write that, being a lawyer.

The truth is that lawyers are the present-day priests in our over regulated society and not surprisingly most politicians have been lawyers first.

What then does a politician do when he gains office?
He writes more and more law, that's what.
Writing more laws expands his scope of power, and like the Holy Writ of old time religion being the single domain of the priest, the written law can only be read, understood, and interpreted by lawyers.
