Building on the previous post regarding the eschaton immanentizing Obama, this CNN item from Monday January 7th, before the New Hampshire primary is a hoot:
I am going to try to be so persuasive in the 20 minutes or so that I speak that by the time this is over, a light will shine down from somewhere.
It will light upon you. You will experience an epiphany. And you will say to yourself, I have to vote for Barack. I have to do it.
Phew! Imagine any Republican running president using language like that.
