This video is, on the one hand, shocking. On the other hand, we have come to expect this kind of quasi-deification of the ersatz president, and so this video can seem like so much “old news”.

Note however the petitions prayed to the Leader mimic traditional Catholic invocations in the litanies of the Church– “hear us” from “audi nos” or “exaudi nos”, and “deliver us” from “libera nos”. This guy hits a full ten on the creepy-o-meter. I haven’t seen that kind of fawning adulation since the Catholic blog awards.
