Prepare Ye the Way: Reuters on Obama

Not since the Chinese Communist Party exalted in the highest its army’s apocryphal foot-soldier Lei Feng — a man so virtuous that without asking credit, he washed his comrades’ underwear — has there been such a swooning over the saintly ways of one man. Except this time, it’s not the Chinese Communist Party and Lei Feng, it’s Reuters and Barack Obama. Check out the page linked below on the MSNBC site, and next to the almost equally uncritical dispatch from the AP, scroll down under the “Candidate Chronicles” to the Reuters slideshow: “A Call to Serve: Barack Obama answers the call to public service.” And prepare ye, Oh ye unworthies of real world America, to worship.
