Bad ideas and their consequences.

Why is this a bad idea?
Tempers are flaring over a version of the American flag flying in Lake County. A veterans group says the flag is an outrage.
The flag, which features a picture of President Obama, was taken down Tuesday afternoon.

Because it leads to this:
The New York Times bestselling author of the explosive new book, Hollywood Hypocrites: The Devastating Truth About Obama's Biggest Backers, Jason Mattera, had his crew's camera snatched and hurled by comedian Chris Rock when he asked the star why he has called the Tea Party racist (video below).

And ultimately leads from there to this here:
PHOENIX - A man described as a President Barack Obama fanatic pleads guilty to threatening to kill Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

You don't have to go far back in history to find examples of why political cults of personality are a bad idea, you just have to surf Drudge for a minute or two every morning to see what Barry's fanboys did yesterday.
