And the winner of The Biggest Democratic Tool Contest is Joe Lieberman!
It seems either at breakfast or while he was showering, Senator Joe Lieberman (D-CT) channeled PM David Lloyd George. Unfortunately for us, it wasn't the Peoples Budget David Lloyd George but War Cabinet Lloyd George. He wants a collection of White House and Congressional leaders to provide advice and direction to the war effort.
In case you were wondering, he was serious. A collection of worthies like that would come up with Gallipoli Redux. If we were lucky.
Then Lieberman took a swipe at everyone who distrusts the President (i.e. the majority of us), saying that we better deal with the fact that Bush was going to be Commander in Chief for 3 more years. And stop undermining Bush's credibility.
Will the people of Connecticut please call Lieberman home? And keep him there. NewsMax is giddy over the speculation that Lieberman could replace Rumsfeld as Secretary of Defense before the Congressional elections in November 2006. Then let's make Anna Nicole Smith Secretary of the Treasury AND Federal Reserve Chairman while we're at it. Outside the improvement who could tell the difference? Well, E! would be covering more Beltway events but maybe that's what this country needs.
