Mary Landrieu Defends Joe Lieberman, Lies about Public Option

What a mess Mary Landrieu is.

First, she gives aid and comfort to Joe Lieberman, chalking up his hijacking of the health care bill to a good faith policy disagreement. And to make that case, she uses the GOP’s frame: the reason Lieberman objects to the watered-down progressive elements proposed in the Senate bill, you see, is because they would “eliminate health insurance companies in America.” Great.

To top it all off, she claims Obama didn’t campaign on public option. Which is more bullshit.

Can’t wait to donate to her primary opponent in 2012, can you?
