Obamessiah Complex

I've seen any number of ads and posters that seem to depict Barack Obama as the savior of humanity. He's the second coming of JFK and MLK, and his mere presence in the office of President will heal all wounds, reconcile all opposing factions, cause swords to be beaten into plowshares, cannons into church bells, and nukes into powerplants.

Another Messianic comparison shows up at the top of this post:

Pilate was a Governor

Jesus was a community activist.

Harumph.
Let me know when he walks on water.
