: We've got an international cast of characters here, and I'm often hard pressed to define an idiom. Where does the reference to "Fearless Leader" come from? In this case, I meant where had the director gone, but my Austrian visitor didn't know the idiom. Thank you, this is a fun forum!

Well, on the Bullwinkle cartoon show, the villains were Boris, Natasha and Fearless Leader. I don't know if Fearless Leader had an earlier origin than that.
