From The Corner:
We Are One [Jonah Goldberg]
It seems a lot of folks beat me to this, though I confess it came to my mind the second I saw the Obama “O” salute. The Obama salute appears in the Star Trek episode The Way to Eden. I suppose National Review is Herbert.
I also remember that Star Trek episode. The Enterprise is hijacked by a crazy doctor and some fanatical followers in an attempt to find Paradise. The “O” symbol is their special sign.
Obama’s campaign is all just a little Too Much and getting Silly-er by the minute.
Apparently Obama’s staffers and followers still cannot see the cult-ish-ness of these signs and emblems and zealous group-think. Blindness to the truth about their Leader and the rationality or virtue of his Mission is a characteristic of all cult followers.
I’d be very pleased with the way this is all going if I weren’t worried that Hillary will talk some sense into the DNC delegates and land the nominiation yet. Darth Rodham has a MUCH better chance of defeating McCain than Obama-Wan-Kenobi. (Yes, I know I’m mixing my Sci Fi metaphors.)
