Cheers.

Obama's "charisma" and the love he generates among certain folks has lead many of Obama's detractors to make reference to his followers as "Kool-aid drinkers".
On my parody blog, "D'offus of the Big-Doofus" I've given them the name "Kool-aid drinking zombie minions"
Recently, cartoons have appeared comparing Obama to Jim Jones, the religious leader who convinced (or forced) his followers to drink a cyanide laced concoction.

Looking into the Jim Jones / Jonestown,Guyana story, I learned that, contrary to folk lore, it wasn't Kool-aid but, Flavor-aid Jones used in the mass murder/suicide.

Somehow, I don't think "Flavor-aid drinking zombie minions" has the same....huh....punch.

Kool-aid, Flavor-aid, Gator-aid, Hawaiian Punch or whatever it may be that we use as a symbol, what the message is is still they same. No matter how much you may sweeten it up, what they are swallowing is just as deadly.

Since Obama was born in Hawaii (yeah, right, nudge, nudge, wink, wink) Hawaiian punch might be a better choice.
