Idiot Joe
I guess Boltin' Joe wrote an op-ed today somewhere. I really don't pay attention to anything he says because he's such an asshole. But I just couldn't pass up Glenn Greenwalds post today that is a total takedown of Joe's op-ed (like shooting fish in a barrel actually) and one of his "compare and contrasts" statements from Joementum:
Joe Lieberman, today: "previously there weren't enough soldiers to hold key neighborhoods after they had been cleared of extremists and militias."

Joe Lieberman, 2005: "The administration's recent use of the banner 'clear, hold, and build' accurately describes the strategy as I saw it being implemented last week."
Let's face it. No matter what Bush does in Iraq is just fine with ole' Joe. I seriously wonder why the people of Connecticut don't seek a recall of this jerk. He has been nothing but wrong, factually, throughout the entire war. His sympathies with Israel have completely colored his ability to analyze the situation, throwing him completely into the neocon camp. He now (whether he knows it or not) carries around the guilt and responsibility of having created a lot of havoc in the world and being partially responsible for a whole lot of deaths. It's people like Joe that continue to give Bush even a slight legitimacy in his misjudgements.

What is it with the Democrats? It seems they always have a Lieberman or Zell Miller around? I guess the Republicans have the same problem, but these guys really are a thorn in the party's ass.

I really really wish Boltin' Joe would.
