"Though shalt not make unto thee any graven image ... "

An Obama presidency would be an unmitigated disaster. That much I know. What I don’t know is what the fallout would be from legions of disillusioned worshippers who don’t understand why the Obamatopia failed to manifest. No human being could possibly live up to the fantastical expectations of these people, who are hanging every hope in the universe on Obama as President. So, given that the election goes a certain way, and at the end of four years we have hordes of disappointed Obama-cultists, what I want to know is whether we can expect a subsequent collective shift back to reality or an epidemic of psychosis. I'd like to see someone with knowledge of cults and mass movements/hysteria weigh in on this.

You know what the difference between Barack Obama and Jesus Christ is?

Barack's middle initial really is "H"!

How do we know Obama really is the Messiah?

He can raise the dead! (Just check the Illinois voter rolls!)

Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week!
