The worst sort of Republican

Josh Marshall:

…now Lieberman is not only running as the de facto Republican in the race, he’s running as the worst sort of Republican, going on the trail claiming that any serious questioning of our policy in Iraq is a victory for the terrorists, even pulling in yesterday’s terror plot take-down into his angle against Lamont. With Lamont, those guys might have blown up the plane. Leaving Iraq is a win for the terrorists. A Lamont win is a win for the terrorists. That was after Wednesday when Joe pledged to save the Democratic party from the extremists he seems to think make up the entire Democratic party. Except for Joe.

I have no problem believing that Joe Lieberman would sell his mother to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad if it would guarantee him six more years.

It’s not about partisanship or ideological purges. It’s about the inability to know when you are not wanted. When you have been rejected. It is about the lack of humility that would inform you that you are not indispensable and a country that survived for over two hundred years before you, just might survive another two hundred years if you’ll only get out of the way and let us set things right.

So take a hint, Joe. Then take a walk.
