Or should we properly call it “ObamaCon 2008″? Probably not, as that lends it a comic book convention like feel to it.
Of course, this entire travesty of a campaign Obama has been running would have us serfs think that it is all for the glory of a superhero like Obama, who may turn out to be so much more like the Armadillo from the Capital One advert.
VDH (Victor Davis Hanson) does a right good skewering of “The Coronation”, with numerous classical references, such as the Attic Orators.
And that’s the sort of thing I like about reading VDH’s columns: every so often, he makes one learn some interesting tidbit of the Greco-Roman portion of our Western Culture that helped make us a great nation.
That, and I often have to read it at least twice to fully take in the wisdom of his writing.
