Profoundly Wrong

For many of those who have mixed feelings about the war, who are neither enthusiastic about the Bush administration's handling of the war effort nor of the Democratic response to it, these thoughts from a speech by Joe Lieberman (as quoted in this article by Bill Kristol) hit the mark and explain why the Democratic Congress has remained as unpopular as the administration:

. . . [T]here is something profoundly wrong--something that should trouble all of us--when we have elected Democratic officials who seem more worried about how the Bush administration might respond to Iran's murder of our troops, than about the fact that Iran is murdering our troops.

There is likewise something profoundly wrong when we see candidates who are willing to pander to this politically paranoid, hyper-partisan sentiment in the Democratic base--even if it sends a message of weakness and division to the Iranian regime.
