What’s the Worst That Could Happen?
According to Joe Lieberman (via Crooks & Liars):
Lieberman: The worst thing that could happen here is that there be some kind of attempt to resolve this pivotal moment with a compromise among factions in American politics and in the American Congress rather than doing what is right and has the highest prospect of succeeding in Iraq—in other words this moment cries out for the kind of courageous leadership that does what can succeed and win in Iraq — not what will command the largest number of political supporters in Congress….we need to support the President as he goes forward, hopefully with exactly that kind of new initiative in Iraq.
I wish I had the capacity to be stunned any more. The worst thing that could happen as a result of a permanent surge in the McCain/Lieberman war is that, you know, a bunch of people not named Lieberman die. I guess there is no pile of bodies that would be unacceptable in Joe's quest for "success" in Iraq.
They really need to file this clip in the DSM-IV under "dissociative fugue state."
