i know all arabs look alike.

In other words, you would have no argument other than to accuse Americans of being a bunch of xenophobic bigots.

Actually yeah I was.

That was as obvious sarcasm as I could muster at the time.

Am I wrong to assume a certain amount of intelligence among posters on FYM? You guys are sharper than this.

It was, what I believe to be patently obvious sarcasm.

Do you all have such a low opinion of my grasp of the situation.

Perhaps I need to take a more 'leftist' stance, then you will know am I 'on board' here at FYM.

That or just a simple misunderstanding.
Really that's all it was, I know.

An American Research Group poll conducted Thursday through Monday said the race was a statistical tie, putting Lieberman's support among 790 likely voters at 44 percent versus 42 percent for Lamont, a political novice and wealthy cable TV executive.

Republican Alan Schlesinger, a former state legislator, had 3 percent. The poll had a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.

Another poll of 500 likely voters by Rasmussen Reports showed Lieberman's lead over Lamont narrowing to two points, 45 percent to 43 percent, from five points in an August 12 poll. Its margin of error was 4.5 percentage points.



Both surveys showed Lamont gaining ground on the three-term senator since a Quinnipiac University poll last week that put Lieberman's lead at 12 percentage points.

Well there are posters that DO believe that in here, and you aren't frequent enough in here for me to tell when you're kidding. Sorry...

Lieberman to Consider Iraq Pullout Plan

By SUSAN HAIGH , 08.25.2006, 09:12 PM


Sen. Joe Lieberman, the three-term Democrat whose independent campaign for re-election is being seen as a referendum on the Iraq war, said Friday he would consider taking a look at a fellow lawmaker's proposal for a timeline for troop withdrawals.

The proposal was floated by Republican Rep. Chris Shays, another Connecticut politician facing a tough re-election battle with an anti-war candidate. Shays has long been a supporter of the war and previously opposed withdrawal timetables.

"It seems to me that Chris is saying, maybe we ought to set some goals for when we want to get out, and I'd like to see what he has in mind before I comment on it," Lieberman said while campaigning in New Haven.

"As I've said to you over and over again, the sooner we get out of Iraq, the better it's going to be for the Iraqis and us, but if we leave too soon for reasons of American politics, it's going to be disaster for the Iraqis and for us," he said.

He would consider "taking a look" at the referendum. That doesn't mean he's automatically defined as a flip-flopping turncoat. As far as I can see it, he has so much going for him as far as support fromconservatives who don't want to elect a Republican who has ethical problems. But if he is following the crooked footsteps of John Kerry, he's making the biggest mistake of his life.

He was against the withdrawal before he was for it.

Bush Confidant Hosts Lieberman Fundraiser

President Bush "moved a step closer to Democratic Sen. Joseph Lieberman's re-election bid in Connecticut as an independent candidate when Tom Kuhn, the president's college roommate and close friend, co-sponsored a Lieberman fund-raising luncheon Thursday in downtown Washington," Robert Novak reports.

"The luncheon's sponsors pressed fellow Republican lobbyists to pay a minimum of $1,000 a ticket. Lieberman has announced he will stay in the Democratic caucus if re-elected. But Republicans backing him against anti-war candidate Ned Lamont, the Democratic nominee, hope for a change of heart by Lieberman."

Asked on NBC's "Meet the Press" if he might follow the example of Sen. Jim Jeffords of Vermont, who left the Republicans in 2001 and became an independent, ending Republican control of the U.S. Senate, Lieberman refused to discount the possibility.

"I'm not ruling it out but I hope I don't get to that point," he said. "And I must say -- and with all respect to the Republicans who supported me in Connecticut -- nobody ever said, 'We're doing this because we want you to switch over. We want you to do what you think is right and good for our state and country,' and I appreciate that."
I really smell a rat here


i would not be surprized,

if at some point in 2007


Leiberman jumped to the GOP caucus

He would hold more power in Senate committees by remaining a Democrat.

Remember, he is now an independent. The Democratic party having turned their back on him during the primaries. Should he decide to caucus with the Republicans in 07 then they would remain the majority party. And they would give him any chairmanship he wanted I'm guessing.
