Barack Obama packs them in...sometimes

The media were all atwitter yesterday when reporting about the whopping 75,000 granola eaters who gathered in Portland to worship the ebony Messiah. What they weren't so atwitter about was reporting that many of those were likely there just to see the heavily promoted free concert by the popular regional band, The Decemberists. But hey, why let a pertinent fact or two get in the way of promoting the chosen one?

This reminds me of a few weeks ago when his holiness only drew about 12 members of his cult to a rally in North Carolina. Of course the paucity of devotees was never mentioned and on television the crowd appeared much larger. Fortunately, Mary Katharine Ham of Fox News fame was there to capture the moment in pictures.

How dare you. By the time Miss Ham took those pictures, Our Swarthy Saviour had already healed a bunch of sick people, cast out some demons, and fed thousands of worshippers with only 5 biscuits and 2 fried chickens. By the way everybody knows that the picture of HIM is photoshopped. A good mus... I mean a good Chris... I mean the SAVIOR OF THE HUMAN RACE would never smoke a cigarette.
