A Holiday? But what has he done to deserve it?
Posted by: McQ on Sunday, November 09, 2008

For a guy who's never done much other than win an office isn't this going a bit too far?
Plans are being made to promote a national holiday for Barack Obama, who will become the nation's 44th president when he takes the oath of office Jan. 20.
Things like this smack of a bit of cultishness to me.

One random article in a regional paper with no sourcing. Skepticism is warranted.

No claim was made it was a national movement.

Instead the point was made that things like this have the appearance of cultish behavior.

Agree or disagree?

Interesting how hopeful some people are now.

And that change will happen rapidly

You want cultish behavior? Lets put it this way.....Che shirts have been replaced by Obama shirts.

I guess if you keep the idea of it all going you don’t have to accept the reality of it.

What? No movement to put his portrait on currency? What kind of self-respecting people’s revolution is this?

That’s going on a bumper sticker some time soon. With proper spelling of course :^P

Maybe we can take all those tacky Presidential holidays (like Lincoln’s birthday), and remove those other lousy holidays (Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving, etc.) and make one large day for The Clown™.

His supporters can all march across the country while chanting his name, and the crowds can then hunt down those they suspect don’t support The Clown™ 100% and have them butchered as a sacrifice.

"Death to anti-Obamaians!" will be a catchy bit on I-Tunes. Maybe we can set up a channel on Youtube that shows Obama’s Muslim supporters slitting the throats of dissenters. You know - before they can be jailed for speaking out against the Dictator Clown™.

Oh, and here is my word to The Clown™ and his thugs:

I have access to a shirt-company... We should all get together and figure out some shirts...

Of course, I’ll also sell Pro-Obama t-shirts too... I’ll not discriminate as to who I take money from... :)

Geez, even us Mormons don’t try to take Joseph Smith’s birthday off, and they call *us* a cult.

They can declare it a holiday all they want, but my kids will be going to school on that day nonetheless. (Isn’t homeschooling great?)

I could understand doing it in a few years. By then the Annointed One may have secured his place as the president who finally realized the Left’s goal of turning the US into Norte Venezuela or West Zimbabwei. But now?

Gee, I thought we already had a holiday for the Presidents.

TomD admonishes us:

"You had your chance the last 14 years and thoroughly fscked up - accept your irrelevency in the new order."

Emphasis no doubt on the "order" part. You got it, Tom. Where’s the nearest re-education camp?

You do know that Bush was president for the last 8 years and that before that was another guy (someone named Clinton), right?
