Virginia Heffernan Reviews Obama's New "Regal" App; Gets Slightly Bothered by the Increasingly Creepy Intrusion of Obama's Imperial Cult Into Her Life, But Then Decides He's a Good King

She does start to pick up on that vibe -- the cult of the emperor, as many more primitive societies have featured.

itís never desperate; itís always professional; and itís a little short on true interactivity. Iíd say it was regal.

...

But Obama is a president and democratically elected in a country with a nominally free press, so I would be uncomfortable comparing him to a king, even a kindly one.

So she decides at the end, I guess, that she doesn't mind having her every waking thought devoted to the worship of his Celestial Majesty.

She figures her life could use the structure, I guess.

6 He gazed up at the enormous face. Forty years it had taken him to learn
what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel,
needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving
breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But
it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished.
He had won the victory over himself.

He loved Big Brother.

Heffernan and her ilk always wanted this. Look at the fantasy that was "The West Wing."

The problem with someone like Bush was his style and the cowboy trappings. They never had a problem with authority itself; they just wanted someone who wore loafers instead of cowboy boots.

49 I managed to avoid the SOTU address, but did catch the Hannity segment featuring the Frank Luntz focus group.

We are doomed, and they perfectly represented the cause of our impending, inevitable doom. Despite being split between Romney and Obama voters, they loved Obama's trite little speech. Because, feelings.

They liked Rubio too, again because platitudes.

When politicians are expected to represent the lowest common denominator, and that lowest common denominator becomes a majority, democracy just doesn't fucking work.

And the alternatives are even worse.
