Say It Ain't So, Joe.

This is how far the left has sunk.
I, the CONSERVATIVE UAW Guy, have been reduced to lamenting the defeat of a Democrat that I voted against (2000), and usually (but not always) disagree with.
I like Joe Lieberman. I oft don't agree with him, but he seemed honorable.
And civil.
And not so much of a raving socialistic commie moonbat.

*sigh*

So the rabid left, in it's quest to help the little guy, has put up Marxist multimillionaire Lamont as their poster-boy.
I'm sure KOS, DU and Soros are ecstatic.

This editorial by Michael Goodwin sums it up fairly well.

From "Win for the wackadoo wing" by Michael Goodwin, courtesy of the New York Daily New.

So now that the wackadoo wing of the party has a bloody scalp [Lieberman], what are they going to do with it? Wave it at Islamic terrorists in Iraq and Lebanon and Afghanistan and Indonesia and Great Britain and Spain and Israel and New York and declare peace? That will work for sure. They better also wear armor and duck.

Lieberman is the first casualty of the war against the war on terror.

Congressional Democratic leaders recently demanded that Bush begin withdrawing our troops this year, regardless of events in Iraq. They called it a "redeployment." When I said that redeployment was another word for retreat, a top party operative disagreed. He said, earnestly, that Dems favored keeping about 35,000 troops "in the region" as something like a police force. "We could go back into Iraq if we had to," he said.

This is fantasy. And that's what Lamont's victory is based on. That somehow we can pull out of Iraq, tell the terrorists they win - and we and our allies will not suffer any consequences. And if those Islamists misbehave, well, we'll just scoot back over there with our police force and arrest those naughty fellows.

I believe that Islamic terrorists will stop at nothing in their mad quest to rule the globe. As a result, World War III has started, whether we like it or not. It will continue, whether we fight back or not. But if we think we can win by not fighting, then we're not just wrong. We're nuts.

Go read the whold thing here.
