ANOTHER RUBE SELF-IDENTIFIES: Tim Rutten: Say, That Mr. Obama Is No Better Than Bush On Civil Liberties.

This keeps happening. Ah, but remember when you now-disappointed Obama supporters were lecturing us about the fierce moral urgency of change? With such overweening self-righteousness? Even as you resolutely failed to look at what was going on, or to inquire into what Obama was actually like? So pardon me, now-disappointed Obama voters, if I point out that you’re rubes. Again, and again.

You were expecting a Chicago machine politician to show an enthusiasm for civil liberties?

I expected something more like what we got. And I turned out to be right, didn’t I?
