And now, two weeks later, he’s on the cover again with a bit of light surrounding his head in that convenient halo effect that seems to surround so many pictures of Obama.
Jim Geraghty was in Ed’s podcast yesterday and said that judging by his press coverage, Obama was born in a manger. Yes indeed, and his cohorts cloak him in Old Testament armor, too: Congresswoman Gwen Moore was saying that Obama wears
“The breastplate of hope. Wielding the shield of unity. Carrying the sword of truth. And feet marching to the beat of change!”
While Leviticus reads,
As shoes for your feet put on whatever will make you ready to proclaim the gospel of peace.
And what better than these shoes can proclaim the gospel of peace when marching to the beat of change?
[CORRECTION: Patrick emailed to say,
Actually, it is St. Paul, Ephesians 6:15, who is making a reference to Isaiah 52:7.
If only I knew Scripture as well as I do shoes…]
Doug Ross has more on Obama.
I’m heading to the Americans for Prosperity Defending the Dream conference this morning.
