Getting it Wrong

While support for Lamont is much more to do with Lieberman being an enabler for Republicans than his support for the war per se, I do find it bizarre that being completely and totally wrong about that catastrophic foreign policy blunder, and continuing to be in fully support of that disaster, is considered to be off-limits by official Washington for judgment. Lieberman didn't just vote the wrong way, he continues to justify the invasion. I'm not sure why it's somehow rude for voters to think that maybe that such a person isn't deserving of re-election.

The kicker is, of course, Lieberman's claim that he supports this war "out of principle."

What goddamn principle is that?
