Lieberman Driving Them Batty
Once again, US Sen. Joe Lieberman has grievously disappointed Pharg, CGG, Anonymous, and countless other bloggers and Liebercritics.
The left side of the blogsphere is in full cry against Lieberman’s endorsement of John McCain, a Republican. The right side of the blogsphere, unlike the prescient Lieberman, has not yet settled on a candidate.
It is not known at this point if Lieberman will endorse McCain or some other forbidden Republican presidential wannabe in the general election, but the smart money says he will endorse the Democrat candidate -- provided the foreign policy of said candidate is substantially different than that of US Sen. Chris Dodd, who favors abject surrender at the earliest possible moment. Having lost a military struggle with al-Qaida props like Syria and Iran, Dodd thinks it is possible to sweet talk these puppet regimes into peace.
Lieberman, at this tender point in the rout of al-Qaida from Iran, is not yet willing to lay aside his big stick and pick up Dodd’s limp carrot.
