Diamond Joe Lieberman

"It is time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge that he will be commander in chief for three more critical years, and that in matters of war we undermine presidential credibility at our nation's peril." -- Joe Lieberman, D-CT

See, not all democrats are treasonous. Some of them get it. What is untrue about what he said?

If you go look at the daily Kos or a dirth of other "progressive" blogs, the moonbat component of the Democratic party is highly upset about this. By the way, it's really clear from reading the KOS that these people are mentally unstable and intellectually extremely shallow.

  • There are calls for Leiberman to march in step or leave the party (maybe option #2?)
  • There is the drumbeat language of "failed policy", "failed war", and "lies, lies, lies" -- even though we've already had this debate and won it. Remember the election last year? Bush didn't win on his Social Security Reform package. But there seems to be this feeling that incessantly repeating the charges makes them true.
  • There is an eerily persistent almost religiously irrational undertone that shows a deeply held belief that Bush and Cheney are evil, evil people on par with Saruman
  • They equate support for winning the war in Iraq with agreeing with the policy that got us there
  • One gets the idea that if you ate the same brand of potato chips that Rush Limbaugh eats, you are evil by association
  • They are generally short on facts and long on opinion and emotion

I mean, you'd think that there was no general election in Iraq a few days ago.
