Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

I Can Still Hate Joe Lieberman

Have I mentioned how much I like having Chris Murphy as my Senator recently?

Joe Lieberman remains a festering canker sore on the body politic.  The idea that anyone who once called himself a Democrat - hell, he was a Veep candidate once - could participate in a roasting of Dick Cheney that did not involve a flamethrower is beyond my feeble reasoning skills.

Dick Cheney is - and this is not hyperbole, I really believe this - a war criminal.  He launched a war against a country that did not attack us and killed hundreds of thousands of citizens of that country as a result.

Roast Dick Cheney?

In hell maybe.

Senator Joe Lieberman “said something to the effect that it’s nice that we’re all here at the Plaza instead of in cages after some war crimes trial,” recalled one person who was there.
