      This is not meant to spark off-topic *political* debate, but I just came across this via a Google News Alert. Consider the latest example of a pundit co-opting a Tolkien reference in an effort to make a political point:
      The author, one James Lewis, writes: "That's how they [the Left] are building up Obama today. When they get done with him, Barack Obama will look like young King Aragorn out of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Return of the King.  The media will show us lots of photos with this archetype. Call it, 'The People Greet Their Young King!'"
      The full article, which makes one further reference to Tolkien, can be found here:
