The New Obama Salute In Greek

by | 11th, August 2008

BARACK Obama and his disciples have a new salute, or they might have:

George Bush had his three-fingered W salute that supporters flashed when greeting him at presidential campaign events in 2000. And now, if a Los Angeles creative agency gets its way, Sen. Barack Obama will see fans meet him with his own salute like the one above.

“Our goal is to see a crowd of 75,000 people at Obama’s nomination speech holding their hands above their heads, fingers laced together in support of a new direction for this country, a renewed hope, and acceptance of responsibility for our future,” says Rick Husong, owner of The Loyalty Inc.

It looks a little familiar. Ed Morrissey thinks so:

Husong says that he came up with the idea after seeing an Obama-Progress poster, but it looks like he just spent to many nights watching Star Trek reruns. Take a look at this sequence from “The Way To Eden”:

He agrees. Him too. She has five alternatives.

He sees the world upside down.

Obama is The “One”.

But Anorak’s Greek connection sees something else. Oooooooooo:

OOOOOooooo – Obama…
