I can deal with frothing-at-the-mouth hatred of President Bush. He's been around long enough, and done enough, to elicit such irrationality in some quarters. And not even his supporters would confuse him with a saint. But this adulation of Obama by people who are not "coweringly religious" but, you know, "deeply spiritual"—I mean, not even Mother Teresa got this from the spiritual-but-not-religious crowd, and she had some really spiritual stuff goin' on. I guess she cowered too much before you-know-who.
I didn't think "the elect" could be deceived by somebody who is not even a candidate for Antichrist. Sheesh.
