Obama Facts

Some months back, girlfriday started a series of posts called, The Case Against Barack Obama, which seemed like a good idea, and am really looking forward to the third installment of it sometime in mid-2009 at the rate she's going.

But then again, maybe she's just too awed by the greatness that is the presumptive Democratic nominee and world traveler. A good buddy and professional funnyman, gave me a link to a wonderful website today: Best Obama Facts, which describes itself thusly:

When even Obama's official campaign is forced to launch a fact-checking website to keep his runaway aura under control, you just know that Obama's public persona has developed a life of its own and is resisting efforts to catch it and put it on Ritalin. We thought that the best way to take control of the situation would be by using Obama's own patented method of hopeful approach to reality. So we built a radically different website: it looks like Obama's fact-checking site, only instead of chasing cowardly facts and arguing old truths that are tarnished and tedious, we invent new,sparkling-clean truths that are exciting and heroic. The beauty of this approach is that when new truths become old and tarnished, they can be easily thrown under the bus and replaced with newer and better heroic truths, ensuring Obama's glorious march towards a higher metaphysical plane of unstoppable service to humankind.
In the face of all these facts, the only sensible reaction is to deify elect this man in November--if not sooner.
