Good morning

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.

  1. Moe, I consider you as a friend, and as such I HATE to do this, but this is going to be one of the few times I have to disagree with you. Wikileaks was breaking the law by posting those leaked embassy cables. It very well could have endangered lives. We live in a digital age, and with technology and the internet advancing the way it is, the international borders become thinner and thinner. The dangerous thing about this is, we still have enemies. There HAS to be accountability. We are still a sovereign Nation – we are still a seperate people and we must be loyal and protect our own.

    Moe…I can understand your feelings on the Senator. He is certainly not your conventional liberal. The way he crossed party lines to endorse McCain was bad, or at least at the time. Now as Obama’s popularity is dwindling, who is to say that Lieberman is not looking smarter and smarter? And plus, he is for the repeal of “Don’t ask, don’t tell.” With Independents as red as ever these days, an Independent standing up for my rights wins him points, at least in my book.

  3. A few points – the actual leaks were from someone inside the US Pentagon (and from inside other country governments too) and that will be prosecuted, which is proper. What Wikileaks is doing is dangerous, reckless and anarchistic, but that’s not my point. My point was to those who have stopped doing business with wikileaks because the likes of Lieberman are putting pressure on – on Amazon and PayPal and others.

    And Sam, as for Lieberman, you know I’m a CT native (sort of). CT Dems threw out ole Joe in the ’04 primary after a long run cuz they didn’t like his enthusiasm for the Iraq war. And he said well screw you CT Dems, I’ll run as an idependant and all the Republicans will vote for me. And they did and he won. And that was arrogant as it comes. And in CT they are seriously pissed.

    I’m glad he’s for repeal of DADT and sure that wins him points. But the issues I have with him lose him points.

    Mac, he’s vain fer sure. Again, not the point. (He’s turning himself in right now by the way.) Anarchists are nothing new in history. I’m with Robert Gates, who said that this episode has been blown way out of proportion.

    WE’ll get over it.

    I want to see the doc dump on the banks!
