WELCOME ANCHORESS READERS! Please check out my newest link, that offers further proof to that my analogy is accurate!
Dear Readers: I must admit, Protein Wisdom gave me some incentive to go back into literature, to effectively tie Egypt into current events. This post is a tribute to them, as well as Percy Bysshe Shelley, who wrote Ozymandius after seeing a fallen colossus of Ramses the Great:
I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said–“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert . . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Ozymandius, King of Kings,
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”
Today’s news show the initial signs that the great foundation of the Obama Colossus is cracking (a big hat-tip to Captain Ed of Hot Air, who put it all in perspective). Here is my summary, with an amusing archeological twist for fun.
* The GOP leads the Obama-led Democrats 6 points on the handling of the economy; I guess the best analogy here is that the masses are thinking the Golden Calf looks pretty good when compared with the “Chosen One“.
* Ginsberg (shock) of the Supreme Court has stopped Obama’s dictatorial sale of Chrysler to Fiat; I think perhaps the best comparison here is that Julius Caesar (after being influenced from Cleopatra into thinking of himself as a divinity) was declared “Enemy of the State” by the Senate. As an Egyptophile and US Constitution lover, I am in the uncomfortable position of having to give kudos to both Ginsberg and the Roman Senate.
* The New York Senate switches back to GOP control 2 months after being led by the Democrats. I have no analogy, other then to compare its level of amusement to this:
