Almost Two Weeks Late, But Finally

Evidently unable to ignore the rumble on blogs, in editorials of other papers, and the commenting in their own online blogs, the Washington Post has actually acknowledged that Joe Lieberman and his pro-Bush stance on Iraq exist.

It's actually quite a good piece with a nice rundown on the Democratic reaction to him, MoveOn and other ultra liberal interest groups new interest in defeating him, and Lowell Weicker's possible run as an Independent against him.

They also address the "Rumsfeld Rumors" that JL will replace him as SecDef. Joe and Rummy both say it isn't happening, so don't count on it.

The Fix also has another rundown of the "The Left vs. Lieberman", with more groups lining up to oust him from the Senate. Funny how the left complains about the GOP being "lockstep with Bush" on issues and not having the guts to dissent, then wants to toss their own for NOT being lockstep with them.

Slate has a pretty good article on Joe and Bush's seeming odd agreements over Iraq, and basically says the lefts whining won't cost Joe his seat in 2006.

Also online today is an outstanding piece by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, outlining why democracy will help breed peace in the Middle East. Part history lesson, part policy explaination, she lays out some very good reasons for planting the democratic seed in the region.

Thanks for finding the link to Condi. I enjoyed reading her message. She's an amazing woman. I was joking once with a friend and told him she was my hero-ess. Oh wait...it's the truth.

Don't let the goons from the teachers union hear you say that :)

I've been told that before. I don't understand why people that are supposedly "intellectuals by definition" can be so out of touch with reality.

LP- some folks tend to take their intellecualism too seriously. They get to the point that they believe they are not only right, but that anyone who disagrees with them is obviously beneath them.

Thanks for the info. I will be checking out the link for Condi's piece. I think she's great and consider her a hero-ess too.

Lone Pony: I went to your blog from here and wasn't able to get your comments section to work. You are the first blogger I have come across that is also from Kansas City. We also share some likes: Mel Gibson, Condi and Ronald Reagan.
