Reagan Cultists Accuse Obama Supporters of Being Cult-Like

So the denizens of the fever swamps are falling all over themselves trying to think of new insults to hurl in the direction of Obama and his supporters. (I won't dignify them by characterizing them as objections. When we get down to criticizing his choice of breakfast beverages, we're really just in the realm of childish insults.) The new one seems to be: Obama supporters are cultish. If I felt like taking this seriously, I might explain why it is that being enthusiastic about a candidate does not make you into a cultist. But, having already had just about enough of these people, I'll stoop to their level and just go straight for the tu quoque:

So lemme get this strait: the same folks who fawned and swooned and got all weepy about The Great Prevaricator...the same folks who asserted that (and I'm not making this up) Reagan was "the greatest president since Jefferson," the same people who pushed to name not only National airport and the International Trade Center building after him, but an aircraft carrier as well...the same folks who are trying to get a memorial to him in every county in the country...the folks who thought his face should be added to Mount Rushmore and to the ten dollar bill...these folks are accusing Obama supporters of being cultish? And all of this is not even to mention Peggy Noonan (a.k.a. Magic Dolphin Lady) and the fantasies about cetological divine intervention in the Elian Gonzalez affair...

So, anyway, you'll forgive me if I don't take accusations of cultishness too seriously when it comes from the certifiable cultists.

Cripes, these people...
