even the nyt knows it's time for da liebs to go

and time for ned lamont to be a senator from connecticut.. the war HAS TO STOP. we have NO BUSINESS being in iraq and we have NO BUSINESS goading other countries into war in the middle east. we have NO BUSINESS torturing prisoners. we have NO BUSINESS standing by and letting the people of the world die. hell, the king and his court cannot even care for their OWN citizens (katrina for example). a change must come and it must come now. and no, i'm NOT a hysterical anti-war blogger trying to oust a bipartisan senator. i'm trying to oust someone who supports a war we have no moral, ethical or ANY reason to be in. our men and women are dying every day. FOR NO REASON. the iraqis did NOT blow up the world trade center. why are we killing them?

A Senate Race in Connecticut

Published: July 30, 2006
Earlier this year, Senator Joseph Lieberman’s seat seemed so secure that — legend has it — some people at the Republican nominating convention in Connecticut started making bleating noises when the party picked a presumed sacrificial lamb to run against the three-term senator, who has been a fixture in Connecticut politics for more than 35 years.
But Mr. Lieberman is now in a tough Democratic primary against a little-known challenger, Ned Lamont. The race has taken on a national character. Mr. Lieberman’s friends see it as an attempt by hysterical antiwar bloggers to oust a giant of the Senate for the crime of bipartisanship. Lamont backers — most of whom seem more passionate about being Lieberman opponents — say that as one of the staunchest supporters of the Iraq war, Mr. Lieberman has betrayed his party by cozying up to President Bush...........

.........If Mr. Lieberman had once stood up and taken the lead in saying that there were some places a president had no right to take his country even during a time of war, neither he nor this page would be where we are today. But by suggesting that there is no principled space for that kind of opposition, he has forfeited his role as a conscience of his party, and has forfeited our support. ...............
