cult of personality?

After reading the beeb's article about his excellency bush it was hard not to think about it that way. Mao switched from the great leap forward
to the hundred flowers campaign to cover his butt (and when he ran out of ideas), maybe he expects switching from 'war on terror' to 'enemies of freedom' and 'tools of statecraft' will somehow make his cultural revolution seem more palatable to us. Oh well, I suppose when anybody's ship is sinking, it's inevitable we try and keep it floating for as long as possible.
