Quotation Of the Day: Politics As Cult Edition

From this John Avalon commentary at The Daily Beast:
At a time when our politics is looking like a cult, there is no tolerance for principled dissent. Dissent is disloyalty and punishable by either the threat of excommunication or electoral execution.
Descriptions of and discussions about the South Dakota version of the principle Avalon enunciates can be found here.

Oh my. I've always thought Gordon Howie, Bob Ellis, and Ed Randazzo sound just weird enough to be a cult.
