Great Moments In Chutzpah

Joe Lieberman, “Independent Democrat”:

Sen. Joe Lieberman, the Connecticut independent who caucuses with Democrats, denounced a MoveOn.org ad in Monday’s New York Times questioning the credibility of Army Gen. David Petraeus, calling on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to distance themselves from the attack as well.

“The personal attack on Gen. David Petraeus launched today by MoveOn.org is an outrageous and despicable act of slander that every member of the Congress — Democrat and Republican — has a solemn responsibility to condemn,” Lieberman said in the statement.

As a member of the Senate Democratic caucus, I therefore call on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to denounce Moveon.org in no uncertain terms for its vile attack on Gen. Petraeus,” Lieberman said. “General Petraeus deserves no less.”

Oh, that’s rich. Joe Lieberman, who hasn’t displayed a single shred of loyalty to the Democratic caucus and has undermined and voted against them at every turn, is now invoking his status as a “member of the Senate Democratic caucus” to tell the Democratic leadership what to do. What a sanctimonious, hypocritical toad.

Not entirely sure what this is. Something about a peanut vendor, apparently.

America Is A Christian Nation


Pro-peace Rev. Yearwood, wearing an “I Love The Iraqi People” button, getting gang-tackled by Capitol Hill police for trying to get into the Petraeus hearings.

Black + Peacenik = Ginormous Security Threat.

I liked the woman in the background sarcastically saying, “Ohh, that’s against the law, trying to get into Congress…” after the takedown.

(Hmm… Since the Democrats control Congress and thus the Capitol Hill police, I wonder if the wingnuts will claim that this is further proof of the godless Demoncrats’ hostility towards religion…)
