  1. Ummm … yeah …

    So, here’s the thing …

    Is there any Obama supporter out there who actually buys into this Messianic stuff? I’ve heard many, many, many, many, many, many, many critics attribute it to his supporters, but I don’t recall ever hearing a supporter sound like such.

    Maybe I’m just confused.

    You mean you didn’t see the sun come out, the birds sing, and the heavens open when he was sworn into office? No dove? Nothing? Are you a heretic?

    This is very interesting from the article:

    Painter Michael D’Antuono has cancelled the planned public unveiling of his latest work “The Truth” at NYC’s Union Square Park on President Obama’s 100th day in office due to overwhelming public outrage.

    Obviously, D’Antuono didn’t think many would be upset by this depiction.

    I will admit that any portrayal of a real person as a Christ figure makes me cringe – not the public outcry kind of cringe – just the disgusted kind.

    Seriously, I haven’t seen a direct application of the Messiah motif, but I do know of a few that comes close – but then again, look what we had for the last eight years.

  4. Yeah – I think the painter had a lot of time on his hands and watched Chris Matthews way too much.
