last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart did a nice little rundown on all the cases where the Obama administration’s promises of “transparency” and adherence to constitutional norms have turned out to be shall we say, a bit opaque.
There were those who saw the writing on the wall on these issues through the haze of hopenchange.
Yes Digby, you’re absolutely correct.
That was us who saw the writing on the wall. They call us many things, including PUMAs, “bitter knitters,” and the “last band of paranoid shrieking holdouts.” We were supporters of Hillary Clinton and now we are Democrats in exile.
We weren’t fooled by the fancy speechifying or the slick packaging and presentation. We said Obama was a conservative wolf in a progressive’s empty suit. We were right and you were wrong. And WE TOLD YOU SO!
So what was our reward? We were ostracized, shunned, and called traitors. We are still treated with scorn and derision. We have been banned from the blogrolls of “serious” lefty bloggers. Why are we still hated? Because our continued existence causes shame and embarrassment to those who sold their souls for Kool-aid.
If you’re waiting for us to apologize for being right you better sit down and get comfortable. It’s gonna be a cold day in hell before that happens.
Obama is yours. He belongs to you and the other progressive bloggers who abandoned their principles last year. We’re willing to forgive, but we won’t forget. And we’re not gonna let you forget either.
