Let's trade!

I propose a trade to the Repugnicans - we'll give you Joe Lieberman for Senator McCain. No change in the power structure but it would seem that each would be more comfortable on the other side.

In reality, I suspect that McCain is relishing his role in being the rational voice of his party and wouldn't be all that interested in changing, while Lieberman... well, he just seems to be a big puss. We don't want him, frankly, so I'd be okay with giving him to the other side even without compensation. His comments in the Dumsfeld hearing last week were frankly freaking embarrassing.
Mr. Secretary, the behavior by Americans at the prison in Iraq is, as we all acknowledge, immoral, intolerable and un-American. It deserves the apology that you have given today and that have been given by others in high positions in our government and our military.

I cannot help but say, however, that those who were responsible for killing 3,000 Americans on September 11th, 2001, never apologized. Those who have killed hundreds of Americans in uniform in Iraq working to liberate Iraq and protect our security have never apologized.
Uh, huh? The events of 9/11/2001 had exactly what again to do with our torture of prisoners in Iraq? The people whose country we invaded that fought back were supposed to apologize for that? What a jerk...
