Spiritual Advisers

So Obama's spiritual adviser du jour has gone and said some new inflammatory things, this time about Senator Clinton.

Am I the only one who is less put off by the comments and more put off by the fact that modern presidential candidates have something called "spiritual advisers"? Sounds like something a king would have.

It makes me think of the pharoh's magicians from Exodus who turn their staffs into snakes, only to have them be devoured by Aaron's staff. Those guys were spiritual advisors. Plus they could do magic. All these current guys can do is blast the world's easiest target.

Things there should be words for...

When using a public restroom, the series of sounds made to alert one's fellow bathroom-goers to the fact that your stall is occupied.
