Barack Obama's more enthusiastic supporters have a new method to display their devotion to the president.
They're being asked to write one of their reasons for voting for Obama on their hand, then upload a photo of them pledging allegiance to Obama.
None of the people who have uploaded pledge photos so far seem to regard this as creepy or inappropriate, more suited to a monarchy or dictatorship than a free country.
The Roman Empire used to build temples to its emperors and encourage a divine cult. Let's hope the Democratic National Committee hasn't started wondering if Obama would look good in a toga.
