Why Joe LIEberman is still a pile of shit.

During the Senate confirmation hearing for general David Petraeus, Joe LIEberman (R-CT) accused the members of the Senate who voted for the non-binding resolution condemning the escalation of the war in Iraq of treason. This according to the Washington Post:

Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) asked Army Lt. Gen. David H . Petraeus during his confirmation hearing yesterday if Senate resolutions condemning White House Iraq policy "would give the enemy some comfort."

Petraeus agreed they would, saying, "That's correct, sir."

Christ Jesus in Heaven, LIEberman really is a fucking nazi, isn't he? He knows full well that the Constitution's definition of treason is quite specific; levying war against the U.S., or giving "aid and comfort to the enemy".

LIEberman, in his Fox Noise Channel (to borrow a page from Keith Olbermann) frame of mind, attacked those opposed to murdering more American soldiers and Iraqi civilians by implying they committed treason. And Petraeus, taking his own page from the Bush propaganda ministry's playbook, agreed! It is unconscionable that this fascist general is being placed in a position of power.

But does the Republican senator from Connecticut, who won re-election with truckloads of Republican money and votes after losing the Democratic primary last August to Ned Lamont, really want to go down that road?

George H.W. Bush, the dictator's father, committed treason with Ronald Reagen by selling weapons to Iran in the 1980s. Iran being an enemy nation that had taken American citizens hostage. The profit made from that act of treason was then funnelled to a terrorist group trying to overthrow a democratically-elected government in Nicaragua.

And Prescott and Sam Bush, George W.'s grandfather and great-grandfather, respectively, committed treason by doing business with the nazis in WWII through Union Banking. The bank was shut down under the Trading With the Enemy Act. But not before the pair got away with millions of dollars.

LIEberman is so quick to condemn senators on both sides of the aisle for the "crime" of not wanting to waste even more of our soldiers' lives on a lost battlefield in an illegal war. But he'll ignore the history of treason in the family of the dictator whose balls he licks on a nightly basis.

So let us all write Joe LIEberman, and demand he issue a full apology to the Senate. And when he refuses, that may be all the excuse Connecticut needs to launch a recall petition.
