Shays Hides Behind Joe on Iraq... Again

Chris Shays is once again entirely basing his cowardly refusal to even debate the merits of his support for Bush's disasterous Iraq policy by hiding behind Joe Lieberman (who, by saying "we won't change each others' minds," is refusing the same debate):

On April 30, during a visit to a meeting sponsored by the Westport Democratic Town Committee and the Democratic Women of Westport (DWW), Farrell had made another plea for a debate with Shays on the war.

Shays rejected the request just as he did the earlier one. Last Saturday, the congressman suggested again that Farrell should debate U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.) instead of him because the senator's views on Iraq are similar to the Shays' positions.

For any Connecticut Republican looking to run away from the most unpopular president since Nixon, Joe is their best friend.
