A Rude Awakening

"Civil-liberties and human-rights advocates, who helped Mr. Obama win election, are seeking both a reversal of Bush administration policies and expanded investigations into possible illegal actions when the administration sought to track down terrorists after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001."

Well . . . not so much. It's likely Mr. Obama's recent high level security briefings have caused a sobering epiphany for the senator.

It's amazing how quickly reality changes the hype. The left will likely see more disappointments in the coming days. As I said before, the fawning, pop-culture media hype we've seen over the past two years is simply not sustainable in the real world. Slogans, chants, and dreams of Camelot are ok for children's fairy tales and '60's retreads, but adults have to deal with reality in a dangerous world.

Story here.

Another tip o' the hat to Southern Appeal.
