"Dealing With Fact"

More "civility" (and an even more massive amount of projection) from Sen. Lieberman today:

[Sen. Lieberman] fired back, calling Lamont's stance on the war "dangerous," and complained, "at some point my opponent has to start dealing with fact and not just be a perpetual whiner."

Forget about the Senator famous for his whining whining about his opponent's supposed whining. More important is that Sen. Lieberman has not been "dealing with fact" for Iraq for years.

Time's Michael Ware, November 2005:

"I and some other journalists had lunch with Senator Joe Lieberman the other day and we listened to him talking about Iraq. Either Senator Lieberman is so divorced from reality that he's completely lost the plot or he knows he's spinning a line. Because one of my colleagues turned to me in the middle of this lunch and said he's not talking about any country I've ever been to and yet he was talking about Iraq, the very country where we were sitting."

Sen. Reid (D), December 2005:

"I've spoken to Joe Lieberman and he knows he's out there alone [on Iraq]. I mean, literally alone. Joe is a fine man, he has strong feelings, but he’s just alone. Even Republicans don't agree with Joe."

Real leaders like Sen. Hagel (R) have had the courage to "deal with fact" on Iraq.

But Sen. Lieberman, as always on this issue, is dealing in fiction.

And failing our troops in doing so.
Mr. Whiner himself accuses Ned of whining?

How Rovian!
Wow. Just wow.
