Powers of universe to be unleashed

Sixty thousand Coloradoans crashed the phones today for tickets to Barack Obama's nomination acceptance speech. I, genius-like, applied online. Man I hope I get in, because then I might get to take part in the new Obama salute:
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 [below].

Mystical rays, yet.

"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.
An ad agency call The Loyalty Inc. Creep-y.

(via Gateway Pundit, who calls the salute "the Head Wringer")

Update: GP discovers the inspiration for the "Head Wringer": the Star Trek "Space Hippies" episode.
