A Gentle Reminder: Obama is Not God

Barack Obama may become the next President. He may even be qualified for the job.

I don’t do endorsements, as regular readers of my blogging will know. But the Obamamessiah stuff, well-documented here, is outrageous.

He’s a politician, folks, not some special otherworldly life form.

I don’t use the term “politician” disdainfully, either. I’m one who believes that politics can be and often is an honorable calling, a calling pursued as are all other callings by finite, imperfect, human beings, a category that includes us all. Barack Obama is no different from anybody else.

Spencer and Jeff have more pointed things to say on the subject.
