Obama: Hysteria, Obasms and Obamania….


h/t Wonkette

"Is it true that Barack's caucus is bigger than Hillary's?" (last comment on this video)




The national obsession with all things Obama continues. Blogger J. Grant Swank, Jr. writes, Magic City Morning Star (2/13) :
Forget issues. He's the man who wraps up JFK, Martin Luther King, Jr., Mandela - for blacks and whites, particularly women and children - and the young who can vote. Mob hysteria - mob psychology - could win the November ballot for Barack Obama. There is no doubt about it. It can sweep across the nation, grow and grow and grow, until talking about the nation's pressing matters will fly out the window....he has audiences who are thirsting for nothing but flimflam; otherwise, Obama's groupies would not wow him as they do. They howl. They weep. The clutch. After all, they're not constituents. They're groupies caught up in Obamamania....He mesmerizes his listeners as a drug dealer wraps up a sale. Now that's truly scary. It's all smoke and mirrors, folks. It's all senior high school president oratory in hopes of winning the election down the hall. That's it. He's got the music entree, then there's the tilt to the head, the cadence in his speech, the compassion in his face, the slick lean body, the shiny white teeth, the sympathy in his voice and the assurance in his cliches. But all he's got is a bag of tricks - snappy words like "Change" and "Unite." That's it. He's a politico magician with a bag of tricks.

Beatlemania comes to mind:



Blogger mssinglemama's comment on my previous post tends to underscore what is going on here:
Crazy about the Code Pink ladies - very interesting tactic. Nearly as bad as Hillary crying.

I have to tell you though - if I saw Obama I’d probably faint too…bottom line - he’s hot, so intelligent, elouqent and powerful - everything a woman wants in a man. And the leader this single mama is voting for.

Barack Obama, Superstar!

Who are you, what kind of change are you are talking about?

Barack Obama, Superstar

Who are you, what kind of change are you talking about?

Adoph Hitler could really rally those masses, and Olde Joe Stalin could make them walk barefoot through broken glasses, And Ho Chin Minn, he could bring the crowd in, and that Po Pot he know how his words could make them hot...

Now do you believe?

Now Marshall Applewhite made them think that they were going to go to Heaven on a comet, and David Koresh he sent his faithful on a path to Armageddon. And of course we all know about olde Jim Jones. His people did what he told em and that Kool-aid got overflowin...

Now do you believe? (the mesmerized crowd shouts back Yes we Believe) Now do you believe?(louder) Yes, we believe! Hallelujah now get that sister some water (the front row of women then faints).

Now do you see yourself as as Che's Second comin... Or maybe you set yourself up on a path even higher. Perhaps you do see yourself as the new Messiah, start a new religion with you as its idol.

Do you believe?

Cults of personalities well they very rarely end well and with yours it could set the earth a trembling... For when you come unglued as all cult leaders in the end do, you could push that nuclear button and set the earth afire..
