Senator Joe Lieberman recently delivered some remarks at a symposium of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies in which he asserted:
What we are fighting for is an expanding worldwide community of democracies. What we are fighting against is the prospect of a new evil empire, a radical Islamic caliphate which would suppress the freedom of its people and threaten the security of every other nation's citizens.
Read the whole address. It's a shame, but entirely to be expected in light of his former running mate's descent into madness, that Senator Lieberman is now regarded by too many in his own party as a sell-out. In fact, as Ronald Reagan said so often of his own beloved Democratic Party, he didn't leave them; they left him.
