I'm perfectly willing to admit that Barack Obama may make a good president (or at least as good a president as any Democrat can, in my opinion), however his campaign speeches seem to be largely about how transcendent Obama and his campaign are - and by extension, his supporters. There is something exceedingly unsettling at how little effort it takes to make him look like a messianic cult leader...

This website takes it to the extreme, presenting Obama in all his messianic wonder:
"... a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany ... and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama"
- Barack Obama in South Carolina. January 2008

"We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."
- Barack Obama, Super Tuesday
I'm a little weirded out right now.
