A Connecticut Flunky in John McCain’s Shorts

(CNN) — Democrats accused fellow lawmaker Sen. Joe Lieberman of misleading the Republican National Convention when he addressed them in a speech Tuesday night.

A senior Barack Obama campaign adviser said Lieberman flat-out lied when he told delegates that Obama never successfully reached across party lines.

“Joe Lieberman ought to be ashamed of himself for some of the things he said tonight, not as a Democrat but as an American,” adviser Robert Gibbs said on “Larry King Live.”

Biden Time

From The New York Times:

WASHINGTON — Senator Barack Obama introduced Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. as his running mate on Saturday, a choice that strengthens the Democratic ticket’s credentials on foreign policy heading into the general election against Senator John McCain.

In Mr. Biden, Mr. Obama selected a six-term senator best known for his expertise on foreign affairs — Mr. Biden spent last weekend in Georgia as that nation engaged in a tense confrontation with Russia — and his skills at political combat.

All Night Long

Senate leader Harry Reid (D-NV) called for an all-night session of the Senate to pressure Rethuglicans to back an amendment proposed by Senators Jack Reed (D-RI) and Carl Levin (D-MI). The amendment would begin troop withdrawal from Iraq within 120 days of the bill’s enactment. The Rethugs were threatening a filibuster, which would require that the amendment pass with 60 votes instead of a simple majority. Senator Reid explained:

This week we’ll make Republicans answer for their refusal to allow an up or down vote on the most important issue facing our country today. We’re going to work today. We’re going to work tomorrow and work tomorrow night. We’re going to continue working on this until we get a vote on this amendment.

July 18 (Bloomberg) Cots were rolled into a room near the Senate chamber and food was prepared as senators took part in a night of debate that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid pledged would last past dawn.


Par-taaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!

If it Looks Like a Duck, Walks Like A Duck, Sounds Like a Duck….

….it’s probably an idiot quacking along with his idiot friends!

From the Alaska Report:

Washington, DC – New Mexico GOP Senator Pete Domenici has joined a chorus of Republicans and Democrats calling for a change of President Bush’s failed policy in Iraq, making him the third veteran Republican to break ranks with President Bush over the issue in the last two weeks.
