Well, Well, Well...Lieberman Responds!

Color me surprised...my illustrious senator, Joe Lieberman, responded to my e-mail asking him to please let me know his position on Dickie Durbin's comments on the Senate floor likening our troops to Nazis, Stalinites and the Khmer Rouge. Here's his reply in its entirety:

Dear Ms. Meister: Thank you for contacting me to express your thoughts regarding commentsmade by Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL) regarding the treatment of detaineesat Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. I appreciate the time you took to voice yourconcerns and I welcome the opportunity to respond.

I understand your outrage about any insensitive or inappropriate remarksmade by public officials. Those of us who hold offices of public trustmust be held accountable to the highest ethical and moral standards - in our actions, words, and conduct. Senator Durbin has publicly apologized for his statements.

My official Senate web site is designed to be an on-line office that provides access to constituent services, Connecticut-specific information, and an abundance of information about what I am working on in the Senate on behalf of Connecticut and the nation. I am also pleased to let you know that I have launched an email news update service through my website. You can sign up for that service by visiting http://lieberman.senate.gov and clicking on the "Subscribe Email NewsUpdates" button at the bottom of the home page. I hope these are informative and useful.

Thank you again for letting me know your views and concerns. Please contact me if you have any additional questions or comments about our work in Congress.



Gee, do you think he wrote it himself? And it was dated 6/24; well after Durbin's apology.

What a load of bull puckey. There was nothing there about how he felt about Durbin's statements, and plenty about "here's some information about what glorious things I'm doing on your dime." Why didn't Lieberman, a devout Jew, denounce Durbin's comments? Even if he wasn't Jewish, why didn't he? Why didn't that pompous doofus Chris Dodd? Dodd couldn't even be bothered to answer me, so I suppose I can give Lieberman (or the minion who wrote it) that much credit.

But here's the answer: for all of Lieberman's support of George W. Bush's stance on national security, he is not his own man enough to stand up to the second most powerful Democrat in the Senate. Like all party weasels, Lieberman doesn't want to annoy those in the clique, for fear of being shunned by his so-called friends. He'd rather bury his convictions than risk alienation...and possibly much-needed support when it comes to re-election. The same, of course, can be said for Dodd, but I think Dodd probably agrees with much of what Durbin (and Pelosi and Reid and Boxer) stand for.

I'm sick of the lot of them.
