    (CNSNews.com) - The Media Research Center held it’s 2011 Gala and DisHonors Awards event this past Saturday. The DisHonors awards recognizes and roasts the liberal media’s worst moments, with winners in several different categories and an overall ‘winner’ with a ‘Quote Of the Year’.


    In the “Obamagasm Award” category, the winner was Newsweek Editor Evan Thomas who said, “Reagan [at the 1984 D-Day commemoration] was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is, ‘We are above that now. We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something.' I mean, in a way, Obama's standing above the country, above — above the world. He's sort of God. He's going to bring all different sides together.”
    Thomas made the comments while appearing on a June 5th, 2009 broadcast of MSNBC’s ‘Hardball’ program.


    In the “I’m Not A Political Genius, But I Play One On TV Award” category, Actor/Director/Activist Rob Reiner’s comments on a Oct. 22nd, 2010 appearance on the ‘Real Time With Bill Maher’ program took the DisHonor.


    “Hitler, by the way, never got more than 33 percent of the vote ever in Germany....He wasn’t a majority guy, but he was charismatic, and they were having bad economic times — just like we are now. People were out of work, they needed jobs, and a guy came along and rallied the troops. My fear is that the Tea Party gets a charismatic leader, because all they’re selling is fear and anger and that’s all Hitler sold: ‘I’m angry and I'm frightened and you should hate that guy over there,” Reiner said during his appearance.

    It creeps me out the way some of the Obamanation view their Messiah as the actual Messiah.

    Can't be. We've been told by the liberals here that such comparisons have never ever been made

    What creeps me out is how people can say something like this and not get exorcised by other reporters.

    Seriously, is the admiration by the left any greater than the right has had for their hero's?
    I know some folks who thought/think that GWB, Palin, Trump; etc, are god-like. I would say that about any brain-washed ideologue would be that way. All one has to do is read the posts on these boards or go to any favorite right leaning/left leaning media outlet.
