Peruvian Shamans Predict Obama Victory

Obama wins the most important of endorsements. This same association of shamans correctly prophesied his 2008 victory, it should be noted. Via

A group of Peruvian shamans are predicting the re-election of U.S. President Barack Obama — and are trying to help it along.

The 12 medicine men and women in traditional Andean dress gathered Monday at the top of Lima’s San Cristobal hill, where they burned incense and rubbed a poster of Obama with flowers and the plant common rue, which is supposed to bring luck. Meanwhile, a poster of challenger Mitt Romney was assaulted with maracas and a sword as the shamans sang, whistled and danced in a circle for journalists, who came and went as the ceremony continued.

The group has staged similar rituals for the press ahead of major sports events and Peruvian elections.

          No no, the one you’ll have to file to get any money from the Shamans.
