contemporary messianism

This may not be The Five Gospels envisioned by the sages of Westar, but it does strike me as "the complete gospel." I had noticed that messianic language has been increasingly attached to one of our current presumptive presidential candidates, but up to now that had (in my experience) been mostly confined to the usual suspects (viz., conservative talk radio). It surprises me, then, to see this in the Times Online, a European organ. (HT: Thanks, SWNID.)

UPDATE: And, of course, there's more where that came from. This seems to me more powerful for being visual than the Times Online piece, but not as clever. Still, I'm waiting for the ad that surpasses the 2004 JibJab classic.
