There is a large collection of individuals out there who don’t seem to have a grasp of international law. There is substantial overlap between that group and those who have difficulty avoiding hypocrisy with every turn of phrase. I’m betting that the overlap between those groups is– with few exceptions– Republican. This week’s winner is one of those exceptions, though he is not-Republican in name only.

After accusing Iran of training and equipping militants to cross the border into Iraq and kill U.S. soldiers, Holy Joe Lieberman adds his official voice to the “Bomb Iran” wingnut chorus. Out of all his hypocritical ranting, I found the following line to be most excrescent:

“If they don’t play by the rules, we’ve got to use our force, and to me, that would include taking military action to stop them from doing what they’re doing.” (emphasis mine, of course)

Just to put our national political system into perspective, remember: had the election of 2000 not been stolen, this walking, pontificating globule of excrement would have been our vice president.

I am going to lay down now, and I will try not to dream about a near future as predicted by Chalmers Johnson, Octavia Butler, and Tom Skilling.
