My favourite finds are often antique pieces with a history.
Primarily affecting low-information voters and members of the mainstream media, Obama Worship Syndrome attributes impossible capabilities to Obama's political opponents, finds excuses for every Obama failure in everyone around him and praises the president as the finest politician - nay, human being - of our time.
A man with convictions finds an answer for everything. Convictions are the best form of protection against the living truth.
