Bow to The Jedi Knight; The Lightworker Stands Before You!

Vote for him, Greedy Konservative, you must.
It amuses me to no end the extent that the Kucinich Left will comingle fantasy and the real world. It goes far beyond the problems that some conservatives, such as John Miller, have had with being Teenage half-Orcs.
While Miller personifies geekdom in a way that makes my highest level Cavalier-Palidan have to go back to the armory and re-sharpen his Bastard Sword, he knows well that he is wasting time on a game. He comprehends that he is indulging a hobby. Unlike Star Wars Creator George Lucas, he seems to grok the concept that he lives on a small planet, next to a middling-bright star, in a boring backwater of the Milky Way Galaxy.
It’s the fabulist left who believes Democratic candidate Barack Obama came from a galaxy far, far away. We have it on high authority; from George Lucas, no less.
Barack Obama is definitely a Jedi Knight. “I would say that’s reasonably obvious,” he said.
San Francisco Columnist Mark Morford seems equally buoyant above terra firma. He suggests Senator Obama has more than one character class. He is also, get ready for this, a Lightworker. Just to argue that this isn’t a gag, Morford coughes on the doobie and actual hammers out a column in defense of this outlandish thesis.
Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve.
And will the Junior Senator from The Land of Lincoln manage this feat. First he’ll snap his fingers, then he’ll click his heels together, disown Jeremiah Wright; and golly, Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore. Admirably, Morford refutes this sophomoric humor by offering some specifics.
There's a vast amount of positive energy swirling about that's been held back by the armies of BushCo darkness, and this energy has now found a conduit, a lightning rod, is now effortlessly self-organizing around Obama's candidacy. People and emotions and ideas of high and positive vibration are automatically drawn to him.
Wise Spiritual Guru Deepok Chopra examines the effects that this reversal of entropy on the part of Senator Obama, will have on our great nation’s future.
If we are lucky, we will wake up and begin the journey back to self-awareness as a people. Disraeli wasn't entirely right. To make a career in public life a person must know himself and know the times. But to make a historical career in public life, the times must seek you out. That happens only rarely, and now it has happened to a junior senator from Illinois. If Barack Obama makes it all the way to the White House, it will represent a quantum leap in American consciousness and a promise to restore America's position in the world.
Chris Matthews, ever the newsman and professional journalist, had the following to say.
"I've been following politics since I was about 5," said Mr. Matthews. "I've never seen anything like this. This is bigger than Kennedy. [Obama] comes along, and he seems to have the answers. This is the New Testament. This is surprising."
I can only hope Chris will take a day of sick leave and have his doctor examine that tingly leg problem…
While I can’t help but enjoy a good laugh at the expense of both John Miller on the right, and all of these various and sundry overrated buffoons on the left, I can’t help but worry somewhat about people who take these things that seriously. When people get up bright and early on a November morning to vote for The Lightworker, things are badly askew. Sane and reasonable adults don’t laugh with Mark Morford on this one.
When they take a step back and realize that idiots like Morford and Chris Matthews actual influence what other Americans think on a regular basis, no one should laugh at all. The Roman Emperor Constantine was correct in eschewing the divinity of the head of state. He should have gone further and proclaimed the stupidity of political discourse informed by anthropomorphic creatures of the woods.
Thus, when any candidate gets publically knighted by Goerge Lucas, beatified by Deepok Chapra or endorsed by a talking bear, run! Run to the nearest voting station and vote against that person. Anyone who actually believes this:
The Bear spoke with gruff authority, "Politics Shmolitics, you say. Well, I challenge(Spelled like this in the original) you. Go deep in the woods. Listen carefully. What will you hear? ... 'We want Kucinich! We want Kucinich!' "
is the last person whose vote for President you should be emulating.
