The Kanonization of Obama and other world leaders

Kanonization and not canonization.
Japan has now a prime minister by the name of Kan.

His rule is now much hampered by the gridlock in the Parliament (the ruling party DPJ does not have majority in the Upper House). The Japanese media is full of criticism on his inertia.

But President Obama and other world leaders are in no better position. Especially the recent drama (if we may call it so) about the debt ceiling in the U.S. is very close to Kan's political stalemate.

I call it "kanonization"--a new term for political science. Whoever be kanonized will be doomed instead of being canonized.

(There are so many desperate jokes around today! Sad, indeed)
