Saint Obama, Trickster

Obama novena candles

Mark Steyn posts a reader’s photo from a street fair in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of san Francisco.

Obama seems to become the flavor of the month, not only in leftwing politics, but also in Santeria, the Spanish-language version of voodoo.

Obama is depicted as St. Martin de Porres, who is used to represent the trickster orisha Ellegua (also spelled Eleggua) also known as Legba and Eshu. What could possibly be more appropriate! Just like Obama, Ellegua is, to the say the least, an agent of Change.

Political Poison Pen Letter, Florida-Style

, ,

When you or I get angry at one of our local politicians, we post an angry letter to the local newspaper. In Deltona, Florida, unhappy constituents (clearly originally hailing from more tropical climes) leave a Voodoo doll and candle by the offending politicians mailbox. Uh oh!


City Commissioner Zenaida Denizac’s happy day after a church picnic this past weekend was briefly ruined by the discovery of a voodoo doll on her lawn.

The doll was stuck with many pins and included a photo of the commissioner’s face pinned on the doll’s head. The doll, inside a black plastic tray, was found by Denizac’s husband next to a periwinkle plant near the base of her mailbox Saturday afternoon.

Jose Denizac said he saw the package when he left at 4 a.m. to fish but thought it was trash. When he returned at 5 p.m. he saw the object while parking his boat and checked it out.

“As soon as I saw the doll and the pins and the candle, I knew what the intention was,” Jose Denizac said. “It is envy. My wife has always been a leader who does not hide anything and speaks with frankness.”

Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the unusual incident, although they do not believe it is a direct threat to the elected official, said spokesman Brandon Haught.
