The People Of Berlin

...have spoken.

I particularly liked the Che comparison, and the hope that the messiah will make Americans less "superficial."

[Update a few minutes later]

Is Obama channelling General Zod?

I am General Zod! Listen to me, people of the Earth! Today I bring a New Order to your planet! One which shall last until the end of time!

Each of you... each man, each woman, each child - all will march proudly together in this New Order! Your lands, your homes, your possessions, your very lives... All of this and more you will gladly give to me!

There is no longer a need for separate nations in this world, no need for petty squabbles between one group and another. All of you will work together, strive, produce, and sacrifice together - and all for a common goal!

Michelle and Barack will make the humans of planet Earth work, and shed their cynicism.

Actually, Michelle can have my cynicism when she pries it from my cold, dead cynical typing fingers.

You aren't the first to note this. Obama-Zod has been showing up regularly on the Polipundit blog for nearly a week now. Usually to pretty good comedic effect. Below is such an example.

Greetings, rubes & non Ivy League ne'er do wells,

People of Berlin -- people of the world -- this is our moment. This is our time. I have come!!

It is I, the Obama-Zod, the LIGHTBRINGER, your LORD and MASTER, and soon to be WORLD PRESIDENT!

Did you not stand in SHOCK & AWE at the Obama-Zod's speech?

Did not a quiver run up and down your leg as you heard the VOICE of the Obama-Zod, and did not the juices of your loins run freely?

You may now freely display your sacrifices of praise to me, especially MFG - remember to use your new title, "My B.O."

Obama-Zod awaits.

Obama-Zod expects more from you.

Obama-Zod bows to nobody!

O yeah, and Obama-Zod expects you to begin bilingual training - starting now.

Every year I come up with "the Halloween Costume." I am much too old and square to actually wear a Halloween costume, but in many workplaces there is some "dress up" to mark the occasion. The idea is I come up with a yearly Halloween Costume Concept, which would be what I would "be for Halloween" if I did such a thing, and for me it is a Scrapplefacian form of political satire. The idea is to come up with something both topical, scary, and funny at the same time.

Besides Halloween comes right before Election Day, and well, you get the idea.

So far this year, the Halloween Costume is a tie. One idea is that the costume and character would be a "Typical White Person", you know, irrationally and prejudicially fearful in the presence of persons of color without respect to their social status, "clinging" to religion and guns and not getting their proper respect from the government. Maybe the costume could be a t-shirt of the late Charleton Heston, saying "my president is now in Heaven", and as part of the costume, I could be clutching an oversized stimulus rebate check.

The second idea for a costume is a Che Guevera t-shirt, you know, the kind they wear on college campuses everywhere. What is my costume character, you ask? Why, what I am for Halloween is a hostage-rescue commando in the Colombian Army!
