Reality Based Politics - Obama is Not (Even) a Liberal

This cartoon nicely highlights the hypocrisy of the SCOTUS ideologues. But that is sort of like shooting ducks in a barrel. It allows liberals to be all too self-satisfied in objecting to the recent SCOTUS ruling allowing strip searches for those arrested on charges of, say, walking their dog in violation of leash laws.

Reality: "The decision was a victory for the jails and for the Obama administration, which argued for an across-the-board rule allowing strip-searches of all those entering the general jail population, even those arrested on minor offenses." (The Guardian - here.)

While "liberals" may find the SCOTUS majority abominable, Obama cannot be considered a liberal. Or, if liberals embrace Obama, they cannot be too vocal about the SCOTUS ruling.
