He Ventured Forth....

.....To Bring Light Into the World.

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.

When he was twelve years old, they found him in the temple in the City of Chicago, arguing the finer points of community organisation with the Prophet Jeremiah and the Elders. And the Elders were astonished at what they heard and said among themselves: “Verily, who is this Child that he opens our hearts and minds to the audacity of hope?”

In the Tampa Bay area, the two local fishwraps are doing a little counter-programming. The Tampa Tribune has actually spoken ill of His Lordship on occasion, while the St Pete Times' Adam Smith has drunk deeply of the Obama Kool-aid.

A charismatic messianic figure speaker before huge crowds in Berlin. Lord, let me remember Godwin's Law.
