A New Leni Riefenstahl?

I guess I'm a little slow (those of you who will confirm that in comments need not), but this occurred to me yesterday:

Is David Axelrod --- producer of the Obamaganza rally at the end of the Democrat convention --- the Leni Riefenstahl of our time?

And no, I don't mean Barry Obama is a Nazi. What I mean is that Axelrod --- like Riefenstahl --- is packaging a local rabble-rouser of little accomplishments and dangerous ideas into an acceptable political product, with little more than smoke and mirrors.

The only difference? Riefenstahl was more talented. And did it in black-and-white.

H/T to Martyhef said it first.
