`The Presumptuous Nominee'

High-level sources in and around Washington, D.C. have confirmed the story implied by an article appearing in the July 30 Washington Post, that putative Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama is clinically insane.

"Barack Obama has gone from being the presumptive nominee. Now he's becoming the presumptuous nominee," Dana Milbank wrote in a scathing piece in the Washington Post that ridicules Obama's arrogance, megalomania, and paranoia. "He travelled in a bubble more insulating than the actual president's. Traffic was shut down for him, as he zoomed about town in a long column, presidential-style motorcade, while the public and most of the press were kept in the dark about his activities.... His schedule for the day announced Monday night would have made Dick Cheney envious: 11 a.m.: en route, TBA; 12:05 p.m.: en route, TBA; 1:45 p.m.: en route, TBA; 2:55 p.m.: en route, TBA; 5:20 p.m.: en route, TBA."

The article notes pointedly: "Obama's biggest challenger may not be Republican John McCain, but his own hubris." It should be noted that the alleged "hubris" Milbank refers to, is not Obama's own, but that of the puppet-masters who have deployed him in virtually every aspect of his role as a campaigner.

The essence of Milbank's column, which was itself a radical shift from most of his previous coverage of the Democratic Presidential campaign, was picked up internationally, including in London's Daily Telegraph and France's Libération.

Other authors, including some Obama supporters, have chimed in as well. Most notable was Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendell, whose biography contains anecdotes confirming Obama's ego problem. "I've got IT, I've got IT," Obama was heard intoning all around his campaign office after an adulatory article in the Sun-Times. "One can only imagine the reaction to this designation from Michelle, who considered it her personal mission to keep her husband's ego from inflating beyond all proportion," Mendell concluded this report.
