Adorable Logical Convolutions! , starring Joe Lieberman

Today, Joe Lieberman and his magical, imaginary political party issued the following statement awkward attempt at pandering:

"If we just pick up like Ned Lamont wants us to do, get out by a date certain*, it will be taken as a tremendous victory by the same people who wanted to blow up these planes in this plot hatched in England. It will strengthen them and they will strike again."

Yeah! And, naturally, if Connecticut sends Joe back to the Senate, where he'll fight to keep us doing what we've been doing--staying the course and never setting a benchmark for troop withdrawal, the people who want to blow up those planes in that plot hatched in England will...uhm...continue to hatch plots to blow up planes. Like they...uhhh...did today. With us staying the course. And stuff. Uh-huh.

I guess that's the sort of critical thinking that comes from having all that Senate experience.

*"A date certain...?" Is speaking in dactylic hexameter part of Lieberman's strategy now?

Joe is about the only Dem I can stomach these days. Thank god the other ones aren't in power.

I think that "date certain" business must reflect a typo in the talking points Karl Rove circulated this week. Joe's not the only person I've heard use that locution; another prominent pseudo-Dem (maybe Hillary?) used it as well. I smell a rat. A dirty, dirty Republican rat.

Hopefully Joe finds himself with a lot more free time to be stomached by various people. I'm just glad we finally took the "Democrat" off his label before he got voted out of the Senate.
