'Messiah' or 'Shadowman?'

The Varieties of Liberal Enthusiasm

The Left’s political zealotry increasingly resembles religious experience. Benjamin A. Plotinsky Explains [click to read] in City Journal.

"Obama’s speedy fall from godhood since his election has been encouraging, perhaps a sign of America’s traditional reluctance to embrace a Great Leader. But it’s far too early in his administration to assume that the fall will be permanent. Radical environmentalism, moreover, will surely be around long after Obama has left the White House. And the threat of other charismatic leaders will remain as well—a troubling lesson that we can learn from no less a religious authority than the Bible. A nation that bends the knee once, as the book of Judges bleakly demonstrates, is all too likely to bend it again."

Is it any wonder then, that Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan [click to read] appears to be "made in the image of her creator." [Barack Hussein Obama].

“Kagan was the last person from Obama’s short list that military personnel and their families want to see appointed to the Supreme Court. Not only has Kagan never even been a judge, she has a record of being radically anti-military, most notably in her opposition to the Soloman Act.” -- Danny Gonzalez ht/SWAC Girl
