Cults of Stupidity-UPDATED

It's intoxicating to be one of the few lucky souls spared from the end of the world. At any given time, there have been those who are absolutely convinced the world will end soon, if not now, and that they have special, secret knowledge that will save them, but more importantly, fry you because you do not believe and you will be left behind. You're an unbelieving stooge. Doomed.

Seven women left a cave in Russia today since the end of the world didn't come at the allotted time. Or was it they didn't have the patience to wait until the allotted time? Either way, the plan seemed to fail. It occurs to me that someone, eventually, is going to be right about the end of the world and have huge bragging rights.

Here's my question: Will the Obama believers come out of the cave before or after the election? For example, the Wright affair seems to have taken the blush off the rose for some, but others are too excited about being saved from the apocalypse to note that the savior might just be the dude hiding behind the curtains and not like, you know, a super awesome savior born of a virgin.

Obama feels a whole lot like Jimmy Carter. And I'm getting the shivers thinking about it.

Update: I forgot to tell you yahoos about this, but you might have already heard. There are huge perks for cult leaders, in case you didn't know. When not holed up in caves, they tend to have nicer digs--and their crazy uncles, too.

The end of the world was cancelled. I heard it was some sort of scheduling problem.

'Must be kind of dissapointing when you have your heart set on it.
