The "Dear Leader" Obama

By David Aikman

The adulation of Barack Obama by the national media is a marvel to behold. Now we learn that the moderator for last Thursday's vice-presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin is an NPR correspondent who has written a book praising Obama, scheduled for release on inauguration day. Clearly, she hopes Obama is the man taking the oath of office. And she was the moderator?

Then there is the video of adorable children singing a song literally in praise of Obama as the man who is going to change the world. Change the world? I thought the current election was only for president of the United States.

Obama has shown no sign of disavowing this cult of personality, which reminds us all of North Korea. Should we start calling Obama "the dear leader"?
