A vent about some Obama supporters

Short and sour: there are many Obama supporters to whom this does not apply but, jeez Louise, other than Ron Paul, I don't know as any other candidate, of either party, who has as many supporters who nearly deify their candidate on one hand and think that his or her excrement isn't excessively aromatic on the other. Most people, supporting most candidates, can discuss pros and cons with some degree of objectivity.
I detest "movement" politics and Obamas folks are reminding me why. The combination of beatifying their candidate while demonizing their chief competitor is nauseating.
And, qualitatively, the messianic passion reminds me of nothing so much as the McGovern campaign, 1972.
That is all.
