Ten More Questions for Senator Joe Lieberman

From the comments at CT Local Politics, these questions by TrueBlueCT are too good not to repeat:

Is Sean Hannity really a "wonderful American", and how do you reconcile your friendship with Sean and the hate-filled bile he spews?

Do you regret your comments in support of the Terri Schiavo intervention by Congressional Republicans?

Will you die a Democrat, or is there a chance you might quit the Party? (you hinted that you would be on the November ballot, one way or the other.)

Your house in New Haven is for sale. Where do you intend to live during your next term?

Are we in another Vietnam? What if Iraq isn't winnable? (the Humpty-Dumpty principle.) At what point do we admit a mistake?

Hamas just won the Palestinian elections. Do you think our occupation of Iraq played a part in the extremists' rise to power?

What do you think of Saudi Arabia, and their repressive regime? Should we be pressuring them towards Democracy?

Torture! Is it an American value? If not, how do you square your vote in favor of Alberto Gonzales confirmation?

Are all the Gitmo detainees guilty? Shouldn't there be some system of due process?

The Bankruptcy Bill. You voted for it before you voted against it. Why didn't you join the filibuster attempt when so many Democrats were strongly against it?


Will Sen. Lieberman come to an open forum in Connecticiut and answer these questions without equivocating?
Comments:
Thirdparty, Joe has mastered the *art* of equivocating. His staff would respond with (a) how dare you smear poor Joe, or (b) nadanadanadanadanada. But we should always challenge and ask him to step up to the task of answering to constituents. Here's my question: Pfizer?
 
Your house in New Haven is for sale. Where do you intend to live during your next term?
How about: Where do you intend to live after you leave the Senate in January 2007 when Ned Lamont is sworn in?

I'll drink to that! (Holding up my orange juice) Cheers!
