Thank you, Joe!
Senator Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut is one of the few Democrats I have any respect for. Since the dark day of 9/11, he has been resolute in our Nation's need to destroy our enemies. He gets it. He knows that without destroying tyrrany, there will be no "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."
Last night at the Republican National Convention, Senator Lieberman stood up for his colleague John McCain, and chose Nation over party. You can read his speech here, or watch it here. Do so if you haven't seen it.
I am glad we have men of principle and integrity like Joe Lieberman serving our country. It is a shame that of all the Democrats, Senator Lieberman is a lone wolf speaking out against the New Soviet Man in Barack Obama. Some excerpts:
Our Founding Fathers foresaw the danger of this kind of senseless partisanship. George Washington himself - in his farewell address to our country - warned that the "spirit of party" is "the worst eneemy" of our democracy and "enfeebles" our government's ability to do its job...
I'm here because John McCain's whole life testifies to a great truth: being a Democrat or a Republican is important.
But it is not more important than being an American...
...this is no ordinary election, because these are not ordinary times, and John McCain is no ordinary candidate. You may not agree with John McCain on every issue.
But you can always count on him to be straight with you about where he stands, and to stand for what he thinks is right regardless of politics.
Rock on Joe, ROCK ON!
