Cult of Personality

Yesterday, I had planned to do a post-mortem on Tuesday's Presidential election. I was incredulous that so many American voters were sucked into a cult or personality.

Which made me recall this song:

Still from video Cult of Personality
by Living Color

Cult of personality
Look into my eyes, what do you see?
Cult of personality
I know your anger, I know your dreams
Ive been everything you want to be
Im the cult of personality
Like mussolini and kennedy
Im the cult of personality
Cult of personality
Cult of personality

Neon lights, a nobel prize
The mirror speaks, the reflection lies
You dont have to follow me
Only you can set me free
I sell the things you need to be
Im the smiling face on your t.v.
Im the cult of personality
I exploit you still you love me ...

More lyrics

When I went to the YouTube video for Cult of Personality, I saw that there were plenty others for whom the recently concluded Presidential election made them recall this song.

it is ridiculous that you think that the only reason that obama won was because of his 'personality'. is it really that hard to believe that someone would think that he was the best choice? you are simple, and i hope that you enjoy the next eight years.
