Why Is Joe Jilted?
Hendrik Herzberg has a fine column up in The New Yorker, explaining yet again why Democrats are so fed up with Joementum. He hits all the important themes centering on Joe pompous self-center-ness and history of arrogance. With regards to the war:
Of course, these irritations wouldn’t much matter without Iraq. “Lieberman’s problem is not that he supported the Iraq invasion, nor that he thinks we need to stay in and finish the job,” Suzanne Nossel, a young ex-State Department official and a fellow at a think tank called the Security and Peace Initiative, wrote the other day. “He has lots of mainstream Democratic company in both those positions. The crux of Lieberman’s problem is his unwillingness to acknowledge the severity of what’s happened in Iraq, and to demand accountability for it.”
I think it's time for journalist, who continue to swallow the GOP talking points on Joementum's rejection (the radical lefties are running wild in the streets!!!!), need to take a moment and give Hertzberg a read.
