“Apotheosis” is one of a handful of words that I’ve always wanted to use in a sentence. One definition of apotheosis is:
the highest point in the development of something; culmination or climax
I got to use it at Birther Report yesterday. Here’s a bit of the exchange:
VeniVidiVici4U: kevin, your false sense of security is about to come face to face with a serious case of asswhooping reality.
Dr. Conspiracy: You seem to think that as the days pass, you are getting closer to the apotheosis of the birthers. But you’re doing nothing more than going around in circles chanting the same mantra of forgery this and fraud that (and telling yourselves that Zullo will save you).
I used it to describe the mythical transformation of birthers from a bunch of Internet Yahoos to the heroic removers of the usurper president, who saved the Republic from destruction, and are forever enshrined in the pantheon of true patriots™.
What strikes me about the discussion at BR is the earnestness and consistency of the belief. I suppose I could paste a compilation of similar statements, but that would be tedious and not particularly informative. Suffice it say that there are many, and I’ll leave with two examples:
BornTexas: It’s not impeachment that will end the usurpation, it will be the mountain of lies and fraud revealed for all to see. Once released, the feeding frenzy will be epic. Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. The Dems will eat their own to avoid the gallows. Soetoro and his enabling minions will suffer the brunt of the onslaught.
William: I don’t get it. You are going to lose. How you deal with that fact is concerning.
I’m just not seeing this.
