Moron of the Day

Today's Moron of the Day is brought to us by News Busters.

Actor Denis (as in penis) Leary said on Larry King Live:

“I think that President Obama is the greatest President in the history of all of our Presidents and that he can do no wrong in my book.”

To which I have to say that anyone who believes that they are following an infallible leader has already failed.

Calling these people idiots would be an undeserved compliment. This is because the word "idiot" is derived from the Greek word for someone who doesn't participate in public life. These full-blown raving lunatics would do a lot less damage in the future if they would just stay home on the days that we hold elections.

Isabel Paterson, a friend of Ayn Rand, had something to say about the phenomena of Leader Worship:

"Let it be asked how any person wholly devoid of talent, skill, accomplishment, wit, beauty, charm, or even the practical ability to earn a living by routine labor, can conceivably become an object of flattering, greeted with applause and given a hearing for the feeblest inanities -- obviously nothing will serve except political position."

She wrote this in 1943, back when the leaders being worshiped were good progressive gentlemen like Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

How much longer do we have to endure this nonsense?
