Never Let a Eucharist Go to Waste

Didn't ballerina and former chief-of-staff Rahm Emanuel say something to that effect? Regardless, the president's Easter Egg Roll Festivities at the White House this year contained a lot of him, and as far as that other Messiah, well not so much. Okay, so they wanted a secular Easter Egg Roll. I don't have a problem with that per se. But when you branch off into yoga gardens, well, I think Easter at the White House has officially jumped the shark.

The theme of this year's festivities was "Let's Go, Let's Play, Let's Move," encouraging physical activity as part of Michelle Obama's war against obesity, which has literally led to an uptick in fat kids being bullied.

Eggs were decorated with images of Obama the Great, an idea he must have stolen from Kim Jong the Second. Oh, my bad. Not the eggs. The basketballs. Because who doesn't want to leave an Easter Egg hunt with a rubber souvenir of our new deity in tow? You can just imagine some eight year old growing up and hanging onto that basketball until one day he realizes, oh, that's what we went $5 trillion in the hole for. Rock me, Obamadeus!

This is what liberals do. Destroy traditional religious institutions that have proven their worth and replace them with false idols who have proven that they can only perform miracles with other people's money. And even then, they're left explaining failed stimulus bills, failed auto bailouts, failed economies, and mountains of debt.

Hat tip: The greatest coverage of this administration on the planet next to Mark Steyn, the excellent Pundit and Pundette.


  1. I guess there's only room for one messiah, huh?

    Thank you for the lovely compliment.
