Joe, Joe, he’s our man…
: Here’s a link to Joe Lieberman’s much-quoted (and deservedly so) statement on Saddam:
This news also makes clear the choice the Democrats face next year. If Howard Dean had his way, Saddam Hussein would still be in power today, not in prison, and the world would be a more dangerous place.
If we Democrats want to win back the White House and take this country forward, we have to show the American people that we’re prepared to keep them safe. I consistently supported Saddam’s removal for the past decade, and am prepared to do what it takes to win the war on terrorism at home and abroad.
Many have said this was a Christmas gift to George Bush. It was also a Chanukah gift to Joe Lieberman: On the first day on Chanukah, he got Al Gore’s endorsement of Howard Dean, extending Gore’s I-blew-it coodies to Dean. On the second day of Chanukah, he got Saddam’s capture. Hmmm, what could be in that pretty package we’re going to open next?
