An evolution in the Messiah’s cult of personality: Where before the apostles sang the words of the master in ecstatic praise, now they’re content to chant his holy name and gaze adoringly at giant posters of him. I like the fact that they start off talking about policy and then just sort of give up as the chanting takes hold and the platitudes issueth forth. And to think, Hillary calls him a blank slate onto which people can project whatever they want. Takeaway line: “I would like to see us in a world without fear.”

Exit question experiment: Try chanting along with them. See if it makes you want to give up on Iraq.
