He's a Lightworker, Apparently...
The beatification of Barack Obama continues:

I remember when the media gushed in this way about the Clintons (he was the most brilliant politician who had ever lived, and she was the smartest woman on Earth), but this is just a bit too much. Barack Obama is the Golden Child, apparently. This article makes him sound like the little bald kid in The Golden Child. If you haven't seen that movie, I'll spell it out for you:

Child with otherworldly powers, who is the last hope for mankind, is pursued by demonic forces who seek his death so that a new age of peace cannot be brought forth. Fortunately, Eddie Murphy (some sort of social worker/private detective) is on hand to protect the waif (who doesn't seem particularly motivated to use his incredible powers in his own defense....or for that matter, at all), and screw the attractive Asian broad. They all live happily ever after.

The author of this article must have been thinking of that, and not Barack Obama, the human being. But then again, he writes for a paper in San Francisco, so go figure.
