Now there is word that the Obama/Spiderman comic is headed for a 3rd printing.
"To meet the unprecedented demand, Marvel is going back to press with Amazing Spider-Man #583 Third Printing Obama Variant," Marvel announced in a new press release.
First prints of the Obama/Spiderman comic are currently going for between 50 and 100 dollars on Ebay.
This is just the latest indication that the American people have fallen for Barack Obama as they have for very few presidents in history.
In fact, Obama has received a level of worship and adoration that few political leaders have ever seen.
It all started during the primaries when women started fainting during Obama's rallies:
And I suppose there is nothing wrong with having children sing songs for their favorite leader, although it is kind of creepy:
But it is another thing altogether when people start calling Obama, in all seriousness, "the Messiah", "Jesus" and when they start claiming UFOs are going to show up on Halloween as a sign that we must vote for Obama.
World Net Daily is reporting that an associate editor of the campus newspaper at Massachusetts' Smith College is calling Obama her "Jesus", and they are reporting that she made this troubling statement:
"I've officially been saved, and soon, whether they like it or not, the rest of the country will be too. I will follow him, all the way to the White House, and I'll be standing there in our nation's capital in January 2009, when Barack Obama is inaugurated as the 44th president of the United States of America. In the name of Obama, Amen."
You could argue that she is just one deranged college student. Well, the video below shows Louis Farrakhan, who has thousands of followers across the United States, calling Barack Obama "the Messiah":
And believe it or not, there are even more bizarre followers of Obama.
An African-American "master UFO Caller" said that on October 31, 2008, superhuman black men from other planets would appear in their spaceships and would hover over his "UFO summoning school" for 3 days as a sign that all Americans should vote for Barack Obama.
He said that October 31, 2008, at exactly 12 noon, was the date and time the spaceships were most likely to appear over Las Vegas, Nevada.
Apparently that didn't quite work out, but Obama still got elected without help from the spaceships.
Even John McCain is getting into the act. In the clip below, while McCain is "roasting" Obama, he basically concedes that he has lost the election, and he talks glowingly about how much he respects and admires Obama:
The truth is that America loves Barack Obama.
Is it a good thing for a nation to shower one leader with so much love and adoration?
