What I really wanted to post

My friend e-mailed me this blog post, which links to this blog.

Which has this rather jaw-dropping link:

Both articles makes the point that folks on the Obama left act in the same way as those who support Palin now and supported Bush then...

And Tabbai makes this interesting point:

"First of all, we should get one thing out of the way — it’s not any citizen’s job to give a politician credit for his political calculations. In fact, that should rightly be part of the calculus of any political calculation; a politician should have to weigh the benefits of making, say, an unsavory insider alliance against the negative of public criticism for that move. If a leader doesn’t have to earn the admiration you give him, then a) that admiration doesn’t mean anything, and b) he will surely spend all his political capital on the people who do make him earn it."

Just wanted to know what you think.
