I watched the Wikileaks story percolate over the weekend and observed careless people saying many careless things. Sen. Joe Lieberman for instance (along with the Iranians and Chinese) appears to be all for The State coming down on anyone who takes tea with someone who was rude to The State. But then, ole’ Joe gave us that odiously named Department of Homeland Security, didn’t he. So no real surprise.
Sometimes I wonder if this sad man who finessed himself into representing my old home state (Joe to CT Dems: Not going to elect me? Screw you, I’ll run against your so-called primary ‘winner’) despite their clear desire to toss him out is actually some bizarre historical joke. How can a child of the Holocaust admire a name like Homeland? It does not compute.
Anyway, this short not well thought-out rant is all that I have at the moment. And I embrace any opportunity to repeat how angry I get when thinking of how Joe Lieberman betrayed us.
