Neon lights, a nobel prize. The mirror speaks, the reflection lies

Glenn Greenwald on Barack Obama's cult of personality as a counterpart to those on the right:
Those who venerated Bush because he was a morally upright and strong evangelical-warrior-family man and revere Palin as a common-sense Christian hockey mom are similar in kind to those whose reaction to Obama is dominated by their view of him as an inspiring, kind, sophisticated, soothing and mature intellectual. These are personality types bolstered with sophisticated marketing techniques, not policies, governing approaches or ideologies.
