Every one of these is worthy of the Quote of the Day Award -- but if I had to pick just one, I'd choose the unattributed "Obama has become the White Liberals' Christ ..." I've long felt that there was a religious aspect to Obama worship -- that Obama filled a deep emotional need for the many white Americans who are unable to accept the idea of a real Deity but still crave a god, or at least a demigod, before whom they can genuflect. Modern Leftism has been saturated in white guilt; Leftists can spend hours lamenting the evil role of white slavers in the 16th-18th centuries -- but never utter a peep about the role of Arabs in that same slave trade, and never utter a peep about slavery in today's Arab world. So, yes, voting for Obama was -- at one and the same time -- a confession of white guilt (many Leftists believe in collective guilt), a gesture of repentance, and a prayer for absolution all rolled into one. Not the first time -- not by a long shot -- that people submitted to Big Brother because they were desperate for salvation, even if it's only secular salvation.
