The Final Days

The End of Checklist Liberalism | TPMCafe

It looks like the end of Joe Lieberman. It’s really none of my business what the voters of Connecticut decide, but what the pro-Lieberman (or anti-anti-Lieberman, in the locution some prefer) forces don’t understand is that opposition to Lieberman isn’t ideological. It’s not about issues, not even the war. It’s about George Bush. And it’s about Lieberman’s ridiculous adherence to a form of bipartisanship that is very like what Grover Norquist once described. Lieberman, for whatever bizarre reason, has decided to attach himself to the various schemes of a President whom most Americans and nearly all Democrats despise, and moreover has continued to do so while claiming that this makes him “principled”.
