I am not sure how many Jews still support Israel (but I am guessing a majority), and I am not sure how many of those voted for Obama (but again I am guess a majority), but that group would appear to be comprised of a large percentage of (what Glenn calls the) rubes. Who are the rubes? In this context, it would be the people who believed the Obama rhetoric about supporting Israel, even though the facts, especially his associations, suggested otherwise. Of course, some of these people may not care so much. After all, what is some lack of support for Israel and coddling of Iran compared to nationalizing health care and the possibility of so much more big government?
Of course, maybe some of those people believed that Obama would treat Israel well and wouldn't be a big social democratic. Well, we need a new name for those people -- maybe superrubes.
