Lieberman Plays the Munich Card

CREDIT:

Speaking of Bush’s Knesset speech (see below), Joe Lieberman put out a release saying he heartily approves of the president’s remarks. I wonder how Joe’s old pals at the DLC and so forth will respond to Lieberman’s increasingly demagogic attacks on the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee. I suspect the strategy will be to argue that this is a new, Zellified Lieberman, but in truth this is the sort of rhetoric New Dems regularly engaged in back in 2002-2005 when it was cool.
