What a dick. Seriously. Central to his cultivated veneer of Serious Policy Guy is the imputation that his fellow Democrats have not put forth their own ideas, that they have not addressed the very real problem fanaticism in Islamic countries seriously.
Lieberman should be forced to explain exactly how and why he clearly still agrees with a manifestly failed foreign policy. Instead he continues to trash his own party, rather than helping work with and publicize the very real ideas and plans coming from his own side of the aisle.
This is ridiculous. Of course, most sensible people at least theoretically put country before party (though there are plenty of Republicans who will never, ever vote for the Party of the Clenis, so make of that what you will). But this is a clear case of the two coinciding -- the Republicans had Congress for twelve years, and the White House for six, and what have you got? Failure and power grabs everywhere you look, and not a goddamned thing to show for any of it.
If that is the legacy Lieberman wants to be a part of, then he should do us all a favor and jump parties, and become the running mate/anchor to McCain or Giuliani. Just slip out the back, Jack. Make a new plan, Stan.
Hop on the bus, Gus. Just fucking go already.
