Nelson Mandela Dies at Age 95;
Obama Eulogizes Mandela By, Get This, Injecting Himself Into His Life

Obama's remarks on Mandela were largely about how Mandela had inspired him. How the first political event Obama attended was an Anti-Apartheid rally. Observers of Obama know, of course, that Obama feels a life isn't validated or worthy unless Obama can somehow connect himself to it.

But even worse than that was the quotation Obama chose to honor Mandela with. It just so happens that this quotation is perfectly aligned with Obama's current political narrative: I screwed up, but I'm going to keep on working until I get this fixed.

So here's what Obama deemed to be the most important quotation of Mandela's life:

"I'm not a saint, unless your definition of a saint is a sinner who keeps on trying."

That's not Mandela's most important quote.

That's the Mandela quote that's most politically useful to Obama.

But to Obama, these are the same thing.

Not Very Hard to Predict The Actions of an Evil Dullard:


And... boom.

That's the photo I was talking about-- the staged White House propaganda photo of a supposedly "private" visit by the First Family to Mandela's old cell.

Odd how many of these "private" moments are used for public propaganda, eh?
