Why are the Neocon's so militantly and ardently pro-Lieberman?
I mean here is a guy who isn't even in their party, yet they are more concerned about his fate than the fate of any possible Republican or Neocon. Why is this?
My thinking is that perhaps that his value is so important because he gives them instant bipartisanship for whacko-idiot ideas which gives those whacko-idiot ideas instant credibility.
Without Joe their to give them bi-partisanship cover, they will have to argue for their ideas in detail exposing those ideas for the idiocy that they truly are.
In short, without Joe, the Neocon Republicans will have to defend indensible ideas. With Joe they don't even have to explain their ideas, they just say they are bipartisan and that undermines the chance of any meaningful debate.
This makes me wonder if Joe didn't throw the debate with Dick Cheney in 2000, and it makes me wonder if Gore had won the election if Gore wouldn't have had a bounty on his head. All great liberals get assassinated. JFK, RFK, MLK, Walther Ruether died in a plane crash. Jimmy Carter went under on his own. Bill Clinton was character assassinated.
If Gore had been elected, and with a Neocon Vice President in Lieberman waiting in the wings, what's to bet that some whackjob wouldn't have put a bounty on Gore's head?
If joe loses big today, it seems that he will have been on the receiving end of justice. If he gets re-elected whats to keep him from crossing over the isle and joining the Repugs who support him so.
