Joe Lieberman Is the Devil

So it seems Joe Lieberman has decided to spend his free time attempting to reinvent the Red Scare, this time rebranded for the war on terrorism. Great, because more paranoia and fear-mongering are just what we needed... Just as a matter of record, the first two iterations of the Committee on the Present Danger provided such valuable services to the US as: ran a television ad blitz to promote military spending and aggressive engagement and eradication of the Soviet threat, attempted to torpedo the SALT II arms agreement with the Soviets and to convince the US to reneg on the SALT I agreement, and heavily promoted the Strategic Defense Initiative. Members of the organization have included such political luminaries as Dick Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Irving Kristol, and Donald Rumsfeld. Senator Lieberman, you've outdone yourself this time. Congrats.
