Barack Obama, fairy tale king!

How do you know the left has gone too far with with their idolatry of the Obamamessiah?

When this picture accompanies an endorsement of him for President.

Rising from the sea like a mythical merman, with his loyal white steed behind him, the Left presents Barack Obama, fairy tale king!!

Christ Almighty. Do lefties really not see how ridiculous they have become with the Obama-mania? Seriously.

Yeah, that *sshole would never give up playing golf because of a knee injury! I mean... because of the troops.

Well actually, so is the subject of the picture.

P. Bunyan:

I think this is evidence of a human need for religious beliefs. The far left has rejected theism and tradition religions so they fill the void by making a messiah out of an elequent but mostly unknown and undefined empty suit.

WILLAMETTE WEEK's covers of... (Below threshold)

WILLAMETTE WEEK's covers often involve a great sense of satire, and is always popular reading in my neighborhood with many well to do politically liberal families where Republicans are very scarce indeed. WILLAMETTE WEEK is sort of like the grown-up version of the old 1960's alternative press paper, the WILLAMETTE BRIDGE. THE MERCURY taps into a younger, more leftist and outrageous market of readers who are not quite as affluent as the older WILLAMETTE WEEK demographics. The music and entertainment industry target both papers with many ads because of the demographics.

If you live in $600,000 home, have a $60,000 or more job, and drive a new Prius, then you're most likely a WILLAMETTE WEEK reader. If you only rent, and drive a used Volvo, then you're probably a MERCURY reader. Either demographic is good for Barack Obama, and is why his main campaign headquarters is in this neighborhood and not in North Portland with a larger African American demographic. White liberals should propel Obama to a healthy 10-14% margin win next Tuesday in the primary, and a good 8-14% win over McCain in November as well. Obama is a candidate tailor made for many of Oregon's voter demographics, unlike West Virginia where 1/6 of the population is on food stamps, many voters are in poverty, and more suited to Clinton's voter demographics.

Obama is likely to claim victory for the Democratic nomination after his expected big win in Oregon next Tuesday.

Make that a lot more. Otherwise somebody's living above their means.

WildWillie:

I want OBAMA to win the demo nomination because the media loves to build people up so they can shoot them down. He is on the media's build up list, so they have no where else to go but down. This is going to be an easy year for McCain. ww

Either way - is THIS what the Obama campaign thinks is helpful?

LaMedusa:

Unfortunately, the artist's subconscious got the better of him/her here. What I see here is Obama leaving his horse behind in the water, and walking half-dazed into a rose bush. I don't think those roses have had their thorns removed. If they are trying to suggest Obama as some messiah walking on water, this picture reeks of idolatry. Notice how his back is facing the streams of light coming from what appear to be storm clouds? There is nothing about this image that suggests that Obama is bringing the light with him.

Beware of the false prophet.

Paul's analysis would be accurate if the Portland metro area were all there is to the State of Oregon. And most metro area folks seem to share that delusion. Before the link I recognized the bridge, skyline and even the unicorn. Only in Portland...

I suspect this art was meant to be a bit tongue-in-cheek, but this thesis is a bit difficult to verify, because if you click on the link, the picture is no longer there.

And contrary to the impression non-Oregonians might get from Paul Hooson's gushing about Obama's chances here, Oregon is actually a big red state, except for the urban areas of Portland and Eugene, which are solidly blue. Paul's estimate of Obama's margin of victory both in the Oregon primary and in the main election sounds way exaggerated to me, fwiw.

#18, JFO, you have exactly the right idea, and I'm not being facetious. I've started taking steps in that direction myself.

My interpretation of the al... (Below threshold)
bryanD:

My interpretation of the allegory:

The droplets represent the anointing of the chosen. The source of the anointment (the water) is also the source of the roses (flower as representing Youth (vote)). The white horse of victory is within the compositional arc of the flowers and is intently focused on them and heading right there (victory by youth).
The sun shines upon the situation denoting favor by God. So in Obama is found favor by God and men and his election is Good.
The bridge (point 1) denotes a life's journey westward (pilgrim's progress) as opposed to Cain's journey eastward, the city (point 2)represents (the city close to the sun) Obama's early notability, point 3 representing the viewer as Fulfillment (see annointing + sun) is represented in the pure white around the flowers, designed to pictorially "pop" forward optically, to more or less blur the line between viewer and subject. Which makes Obama the Object.

Now, as to why Obama's holding a belt buckle while the most tender buds are orbiting his crotch: I think that might be something subconscious; the rest is fairly obvious.
A pretty good painting but Peter F is right: "1970s van".

This painting is totally "gay porn."

Not that I know what gay porn really looks like, but I have gotten spammed and seen things that made me want to scrub my eyeballs with a brush.

Like, say, this picture.

Oyster:

After his numerous comments and judging by his juvenile bacchanalia of late, I'd say JFO's not so supportive of Obama as he is in the anticipation that conservatives won't be happy if he wins. I can only surmise that it matters not to him what Obama does while in office, just as long as it's against anything conservatives are for. Why? Because his comments have so little substance the only thing one can glean from it is, "Nanny nanny boo boo."
