Sen. Joe Lieberman spoke at the RNC. He gave not just an endorsement of Sen McCain but also chastised Sen Obama for his record and lack thereof. Not since Judas Iscariot kissed Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane for 30 pieces of silver has there been such outrage and hatred of one man for "betraying" his people. The way the Democrats are acting you would think that Joe stabbed Obama in the back with Obama saying "Et tu, Joe".
Why is that the party that champions free speech for people like Ward Churchill and Rev Wright don't like it if someone speaks about something they don't like? They act like a bunch of teenage girls getting revenge on another when someone says something derogatory about them. There were Republicans that spoke at the DNC, but there isn't so much outrage among the GOP. Granted Sen Lieberman is more notable than Jim Leach, but that doesn't make it ok for the democrats to right to kick him out of their club. They have threatened him with taking away his committee positions and a censure.
Sen Lieberman didn't abandon the Dems just because he disagreed with them on this one issue. They are abandoning him. The democrats wouldn't nominate him for his seat in the senate. So, he had to run as an independent in Connecticut to win his senate seat back. If it wasn't for him, the Republicans would have the majority in the Senate. Harry Reid should be grateful instead of mad. This just goes to show that many on the left think that the right is evil. Why else would they act like Joe just committed treason? Those who champion the free speech of racists and America-bashers should champion those that disagree with them too.
This is just another example of the hypocrisy of many on the left. The harder left don't really believe in freedom of speech. If they did, they wouldn't try to stop freedom of speech when it comes to religion and prayer, right to life, and other conservative principles.
