'Yes, We Can' Chanters Are in Berlin Too

Well, Obama is dominating the cable news airwaves with his masterfully stagecrafted "I am the new JFK/Reagan" campaign speech in Berlin. The Germans are calling it the Obama Show and for good reason. This has got to be the biggest and most extravagant campaign event in the history of this country. And it's not even in this country.

As is his habit, Barack Obama is once again promising that this, or he is a great moment in the history of humanity. But that's why they call him the Precious. Yes, he is!

Wonder if they will be fainting in Berlin today?

"He is a very charming and determined man, who has a vision for America and the whole world," said Berlin's mayor. Apparently, the Obama campaign sent along several planes full of props. You can hear them chanting in the Berlin crowd: Yes, We Can! Yes, We Can! Seriously. You can hear them right now on CNN.

And in related news of the day, "former NASA astronaut and moon-walker Dr Edgar Mitchell - a veteran of the Apollo 14 mission" - says aliens do exist and have visited earth several times. And I think you can recognize them by the words they chant.

Yes, we can! Yes, we can!

A Gentle Reminder: Obama is Not God
German Paper: The audacious speech took the White House race out of US borders in a way never seen before . . Obama's speech was a clear echo of former US president Ronald Reagan's call to then Soviet leader Mikhael Gorbachev in Berlin in 1987 to "tear down this wall," before the fall of communism.
