The religion of Wellstone (peace be upon him)

Many of our blogger friends have speculated on the cult of personality and/or Religion of Wellstone (peace be upon him) practiced by tens of hundreds of liberals in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area.

As you may recall, Minnesota Senator Paul Wellstone was killed in a plane crash 10 days before the 2002 election while in the midst of a battle for his job against now Senator Norm Coleman. Sen. Wellstone was a transcendent figure to the socialist crowd in Minnesota (and likely other liberal enclaves nationwide) before his passing, but after his death he has become somewhat god-like in their eyes.

You may also be aware that liberals love bumper stickers and signs of all sorts. The Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area is festooned with Wellstone! stickers, yard signs (to this day), buildings, buttons, and on and on. The proliferation of these relics is increasing as time passes.

Some of our blogger friends have reflected on the cult of personality known as Wellstone! Powerline, The American Enterprise Online, and Shot in the Dark weigh in.

Now the MSM have put the late Senator Wellstone! in a deified position. Behold a notice of yet another Paul Wellstone artifact presentation in the Religion section of the Minneapolis suburban Sun Newspaper:

Peace be upon him.
