Hubris, they name is Obama

Sen. Obama: "I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions."

I believe that the proper response to such messianic bullshit is Fuck You.

This should be a great year for Democrats at the voting booth, but if Obama continues with his self-aggrandizing ways, I might have to eat my words and watch the swearing in of President McCain. After that, I'll retire to the bathroom to vomit for 48 hours straight. Actually, I'll be doing that no matter who wins, so I've got that goin' for me.

Update: From the Corner:


Any man who believes he is “the moment that the world is waiting for” and views himself as the symbol of the possibility and best traditions of America is an individual of staggering arrogance. That is doubly so when, like Obama, you have achieved nothing so far in your life — in terms of scholarship or literature, legislation, acts of valor, self-sacrifice, or anything else – that qualifies you to view yourself in quasi-Messianic terms.

One increasingly senses with Obama that he views himself not as a presidential candidate but as a world celebrity, with all the vanity and arrogance that accompanies such people.

Obama, a literate man, might want to reacquaint himself with the Book of Proverbs, which warns that “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall,” and the story of Icarus.

Barack Obama is a very talented political figure, but he is not indestructible. And right now he is flying closer and closer to the sun. At some point – it’s hard to tell when – the wings of wax will begin to melt.

Obama vs. The Bible

Proverbs: Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.

Obama: "Your lips are moving and sounds are coming out, but I can't understand a word that you're saying."
