  •  I seriously don't get that guy (7+ / 0-)

    He's got over 3 years till reelection in a state that's turning blue (if only light blue or maybe blueish purple) and still insists on straddling the Lieberman line (which of course Holy Joe himself long ago leaped over and didn't look back). Is this his idea of smart policy, or safe policy? And how can it be the latter if it's clearly not the former, in today's antiwar climate?

    Perhaps he knows something that we don't know that makes him tack to the right on this. Something, perhaps, to do with Iran?

      •  Which I don't get either (0+ / 0-)

        But then again I still don't get how people like Cheney, Bush & Co. can be so callous if not gleeful about causing the deaths of so many for no good reason whatsoever AND trying their best to destroy a 230+ year old democracy. Being unable to peer into such sick and diabolic minds puts me at a distinct disadvantage. I'm no angel, but I simply cannot fathom evil on this magnitude. It's as if there was a button that said "Push to kill 500,000", and they unhesitatingly pushed it and believed themselves to be in the right.

        And Salazar wants to enable them further. God help us.

    •  "We on a Countdown to War with Iran" (3+ / 0-)

      So said Jed Dobbin, a former Deputy Secretary of Defense, on MSN Money this evening in a debate with General Wes Clark.  Clark's response to Dobbin, "we're on a countdown to chaos" if we attack Iran.  Wish I knew how to link this but being tech challenged, I can't.  It was a facinating and frightening debate.

        The countdown that is. It would be suicidal.

        •  Me too. I checked out (0+ / 0-)

          Dobbin on Wiki.  He's said and written some truly outrageous stuff.  A real "bomb firster".
