Considering Obama's Apotheosis Among the Stars

Barbra Streisand on Obamacare

As Barbra Streisand defended the Affordable Care Act (better known and more accurately called  Obamacare), the celebrated chanteusse used a rhetorical flourish comparing President Obama to a Greek tragedy fit for Mount Olympus. 

One can see why Hollywood Celebutards who are already inveterate knee-jerk liberals might mistake Barack Obama as a deity.  Consider  his elevated, self-congratulatory rhetoric after winning the New Hampshire primary in January, 2008.


Sadly, the world that "the Chosen One" lead us to was not Arcadia but more of a political Potemkin village.  But stars do not mind a flimsy fantasy set where they can act and then retreat to a celebrity cocoon and let the little people deal with the rest of the mess.  Maybe even catch another round of golf.
