Sen. Joseph Lieberman spoke at the Hagee "summit" yesterday, as Think Progress notes:
Lieberman again drew a parallel between Hagee and biblical figures, this time saying biblical heroes, unlike the demigods of Greek mythology, "are humans — great humans, but with human failings." Lieberman said that Moses had his shortcomings, too.
"Dear friends, I can only imagine what the bloggers of today would have had to say about Moses and Miriam."
Funny you should ask:
Markos Moulitsas: "He promised us snakes would lead to our liberation. Well, Pharaoh's still in charge. We need More and Better Hebrews!"
Atrios: "Moses said we'd be out of Egypt after one plague. We're already Nine Plague Units into this with no end in sight."
Mike Stark: "I am going to go to Pharaoh's house with a big roll of papyrus to confront him about his former slaves."
Chris Bowers: "The last three polls all say that Pharaoh's vulnerable, so I believe Moses can take a more aggressive stand. Praise Joshua and let him know."
FDL: "Take a look at these stones Miriam just inscribed for us that detail her journey -- it's not getting enough attention. She'll be here to answer questions in our Tablet Club after sunrise on Sunday."
Howie Klein: "I'm already running pro-Aaron hieroglyphs in Moses' camp."
Matt Stoller: "If Moses doesn't beseech Hashem to deliver us something other than manna to eat, he should be primaried."
Big Tent Democrat: "Jethro has too much influence over Moses' judicial appointments."
Jeffrey Feldman: "If I'm Aaron, I'd be using this Golden Calf symbol everywhere I could. It's the icon that coalesces the needs of the Hebrews in the wilderness."
FiveThirtyEight.com: "I've checked out the demographics; look for the tribes of Ephraim, Manasseh, and Benjamin to make real gains in Moses' new census."
And from across the Red Sea:
NRO's Kathryn Jean Lopez: "A totally crazy Shabbas thought: Wouldn't Ramses make an awesome high-school government teacher?"
