The Cult of Bush eloquently examined

Unclaimed Territory: Do Bush followers have a political ideology? by Glenn Greenwald:

"Now, in order to be considered a 'liberal,' only one thing is required – a failure to pledge blind loyalty to George W. Bush. The minute one criticizes him is the minute that one becomes a 'liberal,' regardless of the ground on which the criticism is based. And the more one criticizes him, by definition, the more 'liberal' one is. Whether one is a 'liberal' -- or, for that matter, a 'conservative' -- is now no longer a function of one’s actual political views, but is a function purely of one’s personal loyalty to George Bush."
