Who knew?

Abe Greenwald at http://www.commentarymagazine.com/2012/05/16/obama-contracts-kim-jong-illness/ informed me that “… In the United States, allegiance to elected leaders isn’t obtained with fairytales, historical embellishment, and mandatory celebration. It’s earned with responsiveness to popular sentiment, sound leadership, and policy results. Gimmick-laden personality cults are for self-appointed paranoiacs who can’t deliver the goods. …”

I did not know that!  Foolish, I thought that allegiance was obtained precisely through flim-flam [Greenwald’s first-listed three] that seldom resulted on responsiveness, leadership sound or unsound, or demostrable successes or failures.
