Veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas wrote a short, concise analysis of what is happening today in the real world of politics (as opposed to BushCon parallel universe). Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman (D.) is in the political race of his life. Strange position for a once-loved incumbant to find himself in. It has everything to do with his unconscionable and unwavering support of Bush Iraq policy. Old Joe has made a devastating bed for himself to lay in.

The people want us out of Iraq. Period.

Voting Iraq War Up or Down
by Helen Thomas

The political fate of Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman will be on the line in Tuesday's Democratic primary in Connecticut, an election that has become a referendum on the war in Iraq.

This is a brilliant piece written regarding this subject, with a concentration on the Lieberman race. Read it and weep...

Yuppie paranoia (and David Brooks) guarantees the Democrats are still -- and forever -- doomed

by Matt Taibbi

The DLC are the lowest kind of scum; we're talking about people who are paid by the likes of Eli Lilly and Union Carbide to go on television and call suburban moms and college kids who happen to be against the war commies and jihadists. On the ignominious-sellout scale, that's lower than doing PR for a utility that turns your grandmother's heat off at Christmas. And that's pretty bad -- but with enough money and enough of the right kind of publicity their side still might win in the Lamont/Lieberman primary on August 8th.

Which tells you just about everything you need to know about the modern Democratic Party. Why is anyone surprised that the Republicans never lose?
