The problem with the satirical story is that Kanye has gotten to a point where it's not crazy to think he would actually say that. Even if it was more outlandish like "Kanye West says he's an alien and we all are to bow to him" I'd see the headline and think "Yea....he probably did say that."
Well, this is it. I know this is a satirical piece, but I wouldn't be surprised by anything...ANYTHING, he says at this point. I'm sure that had a lot to do with folks jumping on board. It's believable that he'd say this. If he says he's a God, then he sure as Hell probably doesn't mind saying he's the next Mandela. And that's what separates him from other artists to me. I love to love Kanye, but I'm just over it. If you don't want to be over it, that's cool mayne, but I'm done.
Edit: How do I put a Santa Hat on top of my dorsal? Or a Kanye Head?

"When music affects us to tears, seemingly causeless, we weep not... from excess of pleasure; but through excess of an impatient, petulant sorrow that, as mere mortals, we are as yet in no condition to banquet upon those supernal ecstasies of which the music affords us merely a suggestive and indefinite glimpse."
