How can you spot leader worship?

The same way that you can an abusive relationship. Excuses.
The more excuses there are, the more wrong there is underneath. The excuses are the rational part of the mind being suppressed by the devoted grey matter that throws out explanations for everything. As excuses begin to contradict principles, a defensive show of angry outbursts follows. And the thinner the excuses are, the greater the anger. The left spent years making excuses for Obama. Now all it has left are the excuses and the anger. The love is gone, now all that's left are the rationalizations for it. And the rationalizations are stronger than the love, because they are a psychological defense mechanism that prevent them from admitting how foolishly they behaved. -- Sultan Knish a blog by Daniel Greenfield

Your Say

This is probably more applicable to the swing voters, the white guilt voters, the elite voters... But I am pretty sure the hard core left never really believed in Obama. In fact, I think he was their puppet. Their golden goose. The anger, in their case, is who they are. We have yet to see this process run its course with the voters we'll need in 2012. Or perhaps they are simply rational enough to admit they were duped.
