How scary is it to contemplate the comedy mask that is President Obama's public face (left, photoshopped image of his gleeful expression last night at the contemplation of Rush Limbaugh's kidney failure) that has the nation's elites in thrall? We keep being hammered with the mantra of his uh, um, brilliance. Are opinion shapers truly in awe of the hot air that floats his "soaring rhetoric"? Even putting aside the anti-Constitutional socialistic substance that animates his rhetoric, his smooth-talking Chicago-style thuggery makes our skin crawl. Used-car salesmen and Mayor Shinn's bloviating "Four score" speech in "The Music Man" come to mind.
"We and the immediate blogosphere made note of Barack Obama's 'creepy, smirky smile' that transmogrified his human face into 'a bizarre theatrical comedy mask' every time John McCain mentioned an inconvenient truth about his opponent's words or deeds during last night's debate," we wrote last fall in the final days of the presidential campaign, noting that "Above left, the mask emerges in full at McCain's evocation of 'ACORN.'"
Back then candidate Obama's ACORN associations were allowed by fellow traveling useful idiots in the mainstream media to be thrown under the bus. Let us hope that ACORN's disingenuous partisan machinations will finally be called to account as the scales begin to fall from the eyes of the zombies who willfully believed what they wanted to believe.
Update: Instalanche #2: "I’d say the mask slipped, for those who wanted to pay attention," writes the Professor.
Update II: "'Scary' is neocon code for 'black.' You are a racist bigot," Samuel Ortegburn informs us in the comments. He's in good company. Obama himself called us a racist for disagreeing with his political philosophy way back in December of 2006.
Update III: Lots of fun and funny retorts to Scary Sam in the comments. Enjoy.
