Of Spider-Holes and "Courage"

On the Don Imus show this morning, Joe Lieberman used today's killing of Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi in Iraq as a springboard for a political attack against Ned Lamont, as reported by ABC's insufferable "The Note":

While calling into Don Imus' program, Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) was asked about the political effect of Zarqawi's killing....

Sen. Lieberman went on to swipe Ned Lamont, the anti-Iraq war millionaire who is opposing him in Connecticut's Democratic Senate primary, by saying that Lamont's anti-Bush campaign "doesn't take a lot of courage."

Sen. Lieberman said he is countering Lamont's plea that Democrats "send a message" to Washington by telling them to "send a Senator to Washington who can protect them and get something done for them over the next six years."

Imus told Lieberman that he was supporting his re-election bid despite his "absurd support for this idiotic war."

Using the death or capture of a high-profile enemy in Iraq to attack a political opponent... where have we heard that one before?

And Lieberman said that if Dean doesn't think Americans are safer with Hussein in custody, "he has climbed into his own spider hole of denial."

Lieberman said the former Vermont governor "has made a series of dubious judgments and irresponsible statements in this campaign." Those statements, he said, "signal he would in fact take us back to the days when we Democrats were not trusted to defend America's security."

Just more of the same tired old Joe, supporting the same tired old Bush Iraq policy which has made our country less safe over the past three years.
