Vice President Dick Cheney went so far as to suggest that the ouster of Mr. Lieberman might encourage "al Qaeda types."Yes, that's right, supporters of Lamont = aiding Al-Qaida. Does anybody still believe this tired connection? When will this old, decrepit, hate-mongering demagogue just fade away?
"It’s an unfortunate development, I think, from the standpoint of the Democratic Party, to see a man like Lieberman pushed aside because of his willingness to support an aggressive posture in terms of our national security strategy," Mr. Cheney said.... Al-Qaida is "betting on the proposition that ultimately they can break the will of the American people in terms of our ability to stay in the fight and complete the task."
Dick, it's called freedom of choice -- you know, a democratic ideal. As opposed to blindly following a neocon ideology down the road to apparent ruin.
