Apparently, there is a great deal of confusion in this country. Yesterday, we inaugurated a President… although to hear some tell the tale, we anointed a saint, at a bare minimum. In the words of Don King:
““I would say that he would be Joshua going across to the Promised Land,” King told CNSNews.com. “Martin Luther King Jr. went to the mountaintop like Moses, and he said, ‘I might not get there with you, but I can see the Promised Land.’ But we gonna’ get to the Promised Land. So Joshua carried them across. Martin Luther King, Jr. was prevented from going into the Promised Land.”
Given the enthusiasms of his speech-writers, what with “the day the waters stopped rising,” etc., it becomes readily apparent that *SOMEONE* has a Messiah complex, mayhap by proxy.
Don King, however, in the end sum, seems to have his head on right, unlike some others:
““No,” said King. “America changed my life. Barack Obama is just a part of the American scene, and what this means to me is that America is looking colorblind. They are no longer suffering from myopia. What we are talking about here is much more profound than just a guy who happens to be American and happens to be black.””
To paraphrase Michelle Obama, “This boxing promoter gets it!”
