Glenn Greenwald does a great job recalling the glory days of the militia movement—the last time a Democrat was in the White House, natch—and pointing out how odd it is that so many selfless sons of liberty were quiet as mice during the Bush-Cheney years despite the massive expansion of federal power, the torture, the wiretapping, the secret prisons, etc. etc. etc. only to start re-hurling their hysterical defiance in the face of the Obama administration after it's been in office barely a month.
Bah. These people don't want to stop tyranny; they want to participate in it.
