Lately it doesn't seem to be enough for liberal politicians to merely run on a political platform, it's not enough to do such mundane things as discuss policy proposals and programs, in place of politicians, liberalism now gives us saviors.
From Saint Barack to the Goracle, liberal politicians are no longer satisfied with just dispensing pork and collecting six figure salaries. Now they want to be your savior too.
Al Gore has built his post-crazy reputation on promising to save us from a crisis that doesn't exist and that we couldn't actually do anything about it, if it did. Strange bearded men who stand in Times Square wearing sandwich boards claiming that the world is doomed are laughed at... unless they happen to be a former Vice President that is.
Saint Barack, with the Illinois State Legislature still wet behind his ears, disdains to run on experience, instead of running for President in 2008, he's running as the Savior of Camelot Reborn or maybe it's Best JFK Impersonator with Criminal and Racist Ties.
Remember when politicians just used to be politicians, without expecting you to erect a Church or a Temple in their honor? It takes an outsized ego to run for public office, but even the Democrats should have drawn the line at worshiping a fat crazy bearded ex-president who claims the world is going to end if we don't switch to energy saving light bulbs (Q. How many Gores does it take to screw in an energy efficient lightbulb? A. None, energy efficiency is only for the little people) and a slimy Chicago State Senator with charisma and ties to radical Muslims.
Sadly they didn't and so now we're saddled with a black Carter trying to pass for JFK and a political hack who went crazy after losing the election and decided that he's the environmental messiah, despite his fleet of cars and the fact that all his books on the environment are ghostwritten and riddled with obvious errors.
American democracy was premised on the fallibility of our leaders. That's why we have a system of checks and balances in the first place. We don't elect monarchs, saviors or deities. We elect men.
Obama and Gore's liberal supporters expect us to treat their idols as suprahuman. If you question Al Gore's popularized misinterpretations of scientific theories, you're a heretic. If the ABC debate asks Saint Barry about his Wright issues, the Dem Underground mob lets out a howl and demands the scalps of ABC producers who of course are in the pay of Karl Rove.
Welcome to 2008 - The year the Democrats got religion. Unfortunately it's the idolatry of politicians, rather than the worship of any higher power. Democrats may claim to be for the Separation of Church and State, but what they're foisting on us instead, is Church fused with State, a secular religion dedicating to turning living politicians into minor deities.
Absurdity transcends absurdity with liberals warning us about the dangers of state religion as they're turning their limousines and campaign vans into the turnoff to Babylon.
