Compilation of "cult of personality" links

By now we are all aware of the cult of personality that has taken hold in the MSM/DNC. It helped propel Obama into the White House and has gone into overdrive this week. On Monday, I compared the words of George Orwell to the situation that has developed in the national media:
It had become usual to give Napolean the credit for every succesful achievement and every stroke of good fortune. You would often hear one hen remark to another, "Under the guidance of our Leader, Comrade Napolean, I have laid five eggs in six days"; or two cows, enjoying a drink at the pool, would exclaim, "Thanks to the leadership of Comrade Napolean, how excellent this water tastes!"
from Animal Farm

Almost as if to parody Orwell, the MSM/DNC has lived down to our worst expectations. It has gushed over the same elements of Obama's inauguration that it attacked in Republican inaugurations. The coverage has been unprecedented. The cult has overtaken public broadcasting and, of course, Hollywood. MSM/DNC has become a parody of itself.

But the parody has a purpose. The purpose is to bully the rest of us into obedience as a far left government takes more control of our lives than ever before.
