Obama flag. Personality cult.

My comment:
This cult of personality will go by the way of cult movies and other weird fads and fashions - like the pet rock. Even now, it's been sold out as a novelty, curio item. Something to laugh at in the future. The phony baloney in the prison stripes, no stars.

Some serious verbiage:
A cult of personality arises when an individual uses mass media, propaganda, or other methods, to create an idealized and heroic public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise.[1] Cults of personality are usually associated with dictatorships. Sociologist Max Weber developed a tripartite classification of authority; the cult of personality holds parallels with what Weber defined as "charismatic authority". A cult of personality is similar to hero worship, except that it is established by mass media and propaganda.
