    ^^^ No kiddin'.

    Public good with the Keating Five. Ooops.
    Public good with shamnesty. If you're an illegal alien, otherwise, oops.
    Public good with McCain/Fiengold. Yeah, if ya like to be made to shut-up. Oops.

    Restoring the trust in government with a backroom deal broker? Yeah, right.

    Goodbye, Jeb... now you're off my list too. At least be honest if you're gonna endorse someone. We didn't just fall off the pumpkin truck.

    Lieberman To Attend GOP Convention?

    by DemFromCT

    Mon Feb 11, 2008 at 02:45:32 PM PST

    Several Connecticut papers have that story today.
    Lieberman may attend GOP convention
    Aides to senator say it is 'quite possible' the independent Democrat would go to support McCain
    Aides to Lieberman, who was in Germany and unavailable for comment, said it is "quite possible" that the self-described independent Democrat will be headed to the Twin Cities for the GOP convention.
    State Democratic Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo said that would go over "like a lead balloon" for party members.
    "It's very disheartening because two years ago he spoke about working to get a Democrat elected president," DiNardo said.
    The criticism from members of his own party isn't a surprise to Lieberman, who lost the 2006 Democratic primary to Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont and ran as an independent to win re-election.
    Lieberman's aides said the senator is viewing this year's election through the prism of an independent. He wants to see Democrats return to the party's moorings of being strong on national defense and promoting progressive values at home that were championed by President Kennedy.
    Dan Gerstein, an architect of Lieberman's re-election campaign two years ago, said McCain and Lieberman share a bond as independent-minded "statesmen" who put their country's interests ahead of their party.
    That would be the same Dan Gerstein who considers himself a Democratic strategist according to this piece in the WSJ. That would be the same Joe Lieberman who racked up a 66% disapproval in the 2008 Democratic CT primary.
    According to the story, he has ruled out being McCain's VP, apparantly partly because he is unacceptable to his new friends.
    [Mort Kondracke, Fox News] downplayed the possibility that McCain will choose Lieberman to be his running mate.
    "I would think that conservatives in the Republican Party would go ballistic if he did that," Kondracke said.
    The story says he's not switching parties, either. That's another reason to look forward to November: a Senate that doesn't give Lieberman the bizarre attention he gets now.

    More Advice for Senator McCain: No Return to September 10th [Andy McCarthy]

    My article this morning discusses the announcement that military prosecutors have decided to seek the death penalty against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and five others complicit in the 9/11 attacks. It raises the key issue of what kind of enforcement paradigm we are going to have: Do we go back to the September 10th approach of treating foreign jihadists as if they were ordinary criminal defendants entitled to all the rights and privileges of the civilian justice system? Or should we treat the enemy as a war criminal in a conflict in which it's vital that we protect the intelligence we depend on to save American lives?
    It's a real opportunity for Sen. McCain to separate himself from Sens. Obama and Clinton. We still have the military commission option because Congress passed the Military Commissions Act in 2006. McCain voted for it; Obama and Clinton voted against it. The next commander-in-chief will surely have an opportunity to end military commissions and order that the terrorists held at Gitmo — including the 9/11 Six — be transferred to the civilian justice system. What do our three plausible candidates think should be done with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed? This one is a gift ... and McCain should grab it.

    Here's the problem McCain has in "seizing the opportunity"... it would mean he'd have to flip on assertions that he wants to close Gitmo and that he wants to stop all sorts of torture, including waterboarding.

    via Ace:

    Even more importantly, according to McCain's campaign, it is now mathematically impossible for Huckabee to secure the nomination.
    “He now needs 950 delegates to secure the required 1,191. But in the remaining contests there are only 774 delegates available. He would need to win 123% of remaining delegates.” Huckabee, however, said he’s staying in the race.
    As you know, he majored in miracles, not mathematics.

    ^^^ Rumor has it that Huckabee wants to be "the first second", meaning he wants to finish ahead of Romney. It has something to do with 2012.

    Read that I think. It just seems like such a waste of time and money.
    But who knows. Maybe it will be some wake up smack to McCain.
    Also read it sorta screws up McCain cause getting Huck to stop is sorta a delicate thing to accomplish.

    Breaking News:

    Mitt Romney will endorse John McCain as the GOP nominee for president, CNN has learned.
    Promote then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.
