Lieberman May Leave Party

uring a friendly wide-ranging NewsMax interview, former Democratic VP nominee Joe Lieberman talked about the need to elect John McCain and Sarah Palin in November, including: Asked if he may leave his party and join with Senate Republicans, Lieberman said he had no immediate plans to make that move, but said he would consider it at a later date. “The Democratic Party of today is not the Democratic Party that I joined in the '60s under my hero President Kennedy, and it’s not the Democratic Party of my dear friend Bill Clinton,” Lieberman said.

Krauthammer Punks Gibson

"At times visibly nervous . . . Ms. Palin most visibly stumbled when she was asked by Mr. Gibson if she agreed with the Bush doctrine. Ms. Palin did not seem to know what he was talking about.

In fact, the more I think about it, the more I like Geert Wilder's shifting of the onus of reform to Muslims. I, for one, am utterly unconvinced that the West is even in the smallest way responsible for the jihad declared against us, although I do admit that we've made the jihad against us stronger by not understanding its origins and methods. I refuse to take even the slightest responsibility for Muslim grievances and refuse to give in one iota...
