British Paper Mocks "The One"

25Jul08

Barack is mocked in a British newspaper in a delightfully over the top manner that, I believe, carries some truth. There is a danger, isn’t there, that the candidate walks a fine line between appearing ready for power and possessing some distorted sense of destiny about himself. If he overplays his hand, he just comes across as high on himself. Consider the high impact of his race speech compared to his poverty speech. The second speech served to pull the curtains back a bit on the first.

And it came to pass, in the eighth year of the reign of the evil Bush the Younger (The Ignorant), when the whole land from the Arabian desert to the shores of the Great Lakes had been laid barren, that a Child appeared in the wilderness.

The Child was blessed in looks and intellect. Scion of a simple family, offspring of a miraculous union, grandson of a typical white person and an African peasant. And yea, as he grew, the Child walked in the path of righteousness, with only the occasional detour into the odd weed and a little blow.
