The cult of personality

The weird thing about the left is that they incessantly worry about creeping fascism even as they embrace it:

The Racine school district’s use of an eighth grade textbook that includes a chapter on Democrat Barack Obama but nothing on his opponent John McCain is unfair and troubling, the Wisconsin Republican Party argued Thursday.

I couldn’t care less about the “unfair” aspect as this relates to the election, but there is something unusually creepy about these Obamanation phenomena. As enthusiastic as people could be about Reagan, Clinton, and Bush the Younger – no one particularly liked Poppy – they’ve never been the beneficiary of this ludicrous Soviet-style beatification.
