Blind hubris

For those who have forgotten what hubris means (shame on you), go here.

This is Victor Davis Hanson's take on Barack Hussein Obama's acceptance speech (Hat Tip: Memeorandum):
Let me get this straight: Obama goes to Europe, does a garish outdoor extravaganza before thousands, returns to find himself dubbed a publicity-seeking celebrity, analogous to Paris Hilton—and abruptly begins a tailspin in the polls. And now in reaction, at the greatest moment of his life, he transfers his acceptance speech to an open-air stadium to handle tens of thousands of frenzied fans, replete with Greek temple (Olympian Zeus or Parthenon?) as the backdrop stage, and outspoken rock stars?
Read the whole thing. Ouch.

Carl - the Roman Emperors were human gods deified. The Imperial cult was making sacrifices to the Emperor. Only the Jews in antiquity rejected it. The idea a man should be worshiped like a god is alien to Jewish thought.

A good reason to refer to it as idol worship, no?
