Stay Classy, Dems

They’re debating whether to expel Joe Lieberman from the party

Instead of focusing on the things that need work in our nation, (I wonder if they know we have some financial issues?) they’re looking for ways to stigmatize Lieberman. He’s a handy scapegoat, I guess.

HARTFORD, Conn. – Connecticut Democrats are considering whether to ask Sen. Joe Lieberman to leave the party for speaking at the Republicans’ convention and backing GOP presidential nominee John McCain.

The party scheduled a debate Wednesday night on a resolution that would censure Lieberman and ask the veteran politician to resign from the Democratic Party.

Well, it is not as if I could like the Democrats any less than I already do, so I guess it doesn’t matter.

But Don’t Question Their Patriotism!

That makes them angry

Even Barack Obama, who opposed the Iraq troop surge, has finally acknowledged its success. But some of his fellow Democrats in Congress apparently remain unconvinced. Earlier this week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin teamed up to block a vote on a bipartisan resolution “recognizing the strategic success of the troop surge in Iraq” and thanking our men and women in uniform for their efforts.

Citing General Petraeus by name, the resolution, which is sponsored by Independent Democrat Joe Lieberman and Republican Lindsey Graham, “commends and expresses the gratitude to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces for the service, sacrifices, and heroism that made the success of the troop surge in Iraq possible.”

Why would they do something so dumb? (A: Because they are dumb?)

The reality is that success in Iraq has confounded the political left, which placed a huge political bet on our defeat. Senator Reid famously declared the war lost in April 2007. Joe Biden introduced a resolution opposing the surge. And Hillary Clinton said the reports of progress in Iraq required “a willing suspension of disbelief.” In the Democratic narrative, our troops in Iraq are victims of a lost cause, not heroes. They’re allowed to get maimed and killed, but not to succeed.

Bottom line:

Unfortunately, the last thing that Democrats want to discuss in this election season is success in Iraq.

NY Magazine Describes Jews

They really don’t like us at all.

Here’s how it starts out:

Senator Joe Lieberman enters the room, but I can’t see him—just a centipedelike scrum of black suits and Hasid hats that has formed around him and now moves, buzzing, toward the dais.

Let’s try that with African Americans, just to get a feel for how it would play:

Senator Barack Obama enters the room, but I can’t see him—just a centipedelike scrum of black suits that has formed around him and now moves, buzzing, toward the dais.

How would that play? Here’s another bit:

The adoring entourage finally falls away, allowing the senator, short and slight, to take his seat on the dais. His never-changing coif—a mass of yellowish-gray hair combed backward in two bulky wings—retains a whiff of seventies cool; it would go well with a turtleneck. Right now there’s a blue-and-white yarmulke nestled atop it.

Oh my, not a yarmulke! Not that!!

Well, they’re upset because he is a McCain supporter, but they express their unhappiness with antisemitism. I understand that they want him to fall into lockstep with the party, but I can’t forgive the antisemitic language. And it isn’t just words, is it? You can just feel the contempt underneath the words.

Want to hear some real Democratic hatred?

Wonkette, the Washington gossip blog, turned the hatred of the senator into something like a literary extreme sport: “It’s like two quarter-pound stools of alien space shit crashed into a toxic-waste dumpster in Stamford, Connecticut, fucked, and out came their mutilated, blood-soaked carcass of a baby rat-child, Senator Joseph Lieberman.”

Sounds like a modern day Goebbels, doesn’t it?

My haiku to the Democrats:

McCain, McCain, I
believe he might win because
of Joe Lieberman

I will not vote for
the party of hatred, now
or in the future
