Then, Thomas actually comes right out and says that Obama is now "sort of God." Here's the exact quote:
"I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God."
No, I'm not kidding. Evan Thomas said that.
He even claimed that this is Obama's task . . . his "job!"

Boy . . . we mere mortal Americans are in big trouble! Looks like we may have a few tasks to perform -- starting with cancelling any subscription to Newsweek.
UPDATE: 06/07/09 Apparently not wanting to be outdone by some cuckoo publisher of an American "news" magazine that has headed south for the duration, a French restauranteur has claimed "I saw God before me" when he eyeballed Michelle Obama in his Paris eatery last night!
"I saw God before me," he said, "because I saw this smile that a million people have seen around the world. I saw her (Michelle) radiant. ... It's idiotic, but it's like that."
Okay. I'll agree with the "idiotic" part.
*Oh. Sorry about the failure to issue the obligatory Olbermann-Content Alert in posting the "furrowing-up-my-leg" video.
