Lieberman, Last of The Democrat Patriots

Joe Lieberman is one of those men that you may agree with sometimes and disagree with at other times, yet he always commands your respect.

Thanks to an article by William Kristol (also a good read) at the Weekly Standard, I went to Senator Lieberman's site and read this.

Here is a sample that I hope will whet your appetite:

But there is something profoundly wrong—something that should trouble all of us—when we have elected Democratic officials who seem more worried about how the Bush administration might respond to Iran’s murder of our troops, than about the fact that Iran is murdering our troops.

There is likewise something profoundly wrong when we see candidates who are willing to pander to this politically paranoid, hyper-partisan sentiment in the Democratic base—even if it sends a message of weakness and division to the Iranian regime.
