Joltin' Joe

This Joltin' Joe is Jewish, not Italian. But like DiMaggio he stands at the plate with his eye on the ball.

Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut told the Jerusalem Post:

"I think the only justifiable use of military power would be an attempt to deter the development of their nuclear program if we felt there was no other way to do it."

Lieberman said he uses the word "deter" because it's doubtful that even an extensive air assault could eliminate all of Iran's nuclear facilities, many of which are buried underground.

The goal of such an attack, he explained, would be to "delay" Iran's nuclear program, hoping that "by the time they catch up back to where they were, there's been a change in the government. That's the limited objective that I would see."

(This man is definitely a Roosevelt Democrat. If his party was led by men such as himself it wouldn't need the kooks' money and the mainstream media to get elected.)

John Negroponte, U.S. National Intelligence Director, thinks Iran would likely obtain nuclear weapons long before they had the ability to create their own. And where would they come from? Russian black market? North Korea? All it would take would be for the current government in Pakistan to be toppled, and for that country to become a radical Muslim theocracy, for there to be a supply of nukes passed around in the Middle East.

It's a dangerous world, and maintaining our security may some day involve regarding "threats" as an act of war... and striking mercilessly while we still have a demonstrable advantage. It is no time to become weak by electing defeatist, multiculturalist Democrats to Congress.

But maybe we should keep Joltin' Joe Lieberman.

Let's trade the Dems Chafee, McCain and Snowe for Lieberman. While 3 to one, we would in the end be better off.

Word is that the Dems are trying to defeat Lieberman in the primaries because he isn't as loony as the rest of them.

Joe is on his way out.

I haven't been following the race very closely. Is Joe behind in the polls? And how soon is the primary?
