The Cult of Obama Gets Even Creepier

Be sure to read this downright creepy article from US News and World Report. I really was hoping that this was some sort of satire, but it's not. US News and World Report isn't The Onion. Obama's supporters are getting weirder by the day. They view him in Messianic terms and considerably irrational when it comes to his candidacy, often taking it extremely personal when you challenge his positions, much like does, though he pulled no punches today when he took it upon himself to bad mouth America when a little girl asked him why he was running for president. Anyway, here's some take away snippets from the article:

"We thought, 'Let's try and start a movement where even while walking down the street, people would hold up the O and you would know that they were for Obama,' " says Husong.
"We want to see it everywhere, but more importantly we want this sign to take the world by storm."

I'd make a wise ass crack about how it could be easily compared to a gang sign, but then I'd be accused of being a racist, I'm sure. I'll settle by Godwin-ing and remind you....you know who else liked seeing people raise their hands and chant as a symbol of support?
