I sometimes wonder if there is a perverse zeal for abortion and similar pelvic issues on the Left that keeps people voting for *their* despicable candidate in much that same way that people on the right will vote for the most absurd crook or creep so long as he wears a Precious Feet pin. What else does Obama have to offer the Left besides an adamantine will to support abortion and sundry pelvic fanaticisms, including a completely absurd war on the Catholic Church? His bellicose foreign policy, his war on habeas corpus, his choice to grant himself the power to murder citizens, his refusal to prosecute war crimes and his de facto choice to hold torture in reserve just in case he needs it, his completely incestuous relationship with corporate America, his maintenance of the Empire, his perpetuation of our vast and exhausting military adventures–all this *should* be a source of grave embarrassment to the Left. But instead we see repulsive progressive hypocrisy as Glenn Greenwald calls it. Evidently zeal for abortion and reluctant endorsement of gay “marriage” is the 30 pieces of silver sufficient for the Thing that Used to be Liberalism to prostitute itself for a guy who has done damage to American freedom at home that dwarfs the already disastrous legacy of Bush 43.
