Them that's got shall get, them that's not shall lose...

Taking a minute here for a late lunch and a quick scan of the news I see, Kerry has finally seen the light and announced he wouldn't be running for the nomination. Good choice. The field is already too crowded and he already had his shot and he blew it.

Hagel continues to impress with his tough talk, telling his colleagues in the Senate to take a prinicipled and forthright position on Iraq or get out of politics and start selling shoes for a living. I liked this quote.
...Like always, the American people are far ahead of us sitting here, far ahead of us. Because we’re concerned about politics. We’re concerned about our position. We’re concerned about our next election.
Hagel clearly gets it.

Meanwhile, Lieberman the self-appointed boot licker for the White House continues to astound and appall with his clueless propagandizing for Bush. He clearly doesn't get it.

Maybe he thinks Cheney is really on his way out on account of the revelations of the VP's malfaesance emerging from the Libby trial and that he has a shot at replacing him since he apparently has taken over the job of virtually accusing administration critics of treason. Worse yet he weaseled Petraeus into agreeing with him at the hearing. Senator John Warner in turn warns Petraeus to beware of becoming associated with the toxic sentiments of hapless dirty tricksters like Lieberman.

By the way, am I the only one that struggles not to start calling Slow Joe, LIEberman. Somehow it's so fitting his very name starts out with a lie that I find I often make that typo and I'm loath to correct it.

Great link Lester. Thanks. I agree, Ron Paul should be getting a lot more attention from the MSM but the netroots could change all that. The question is which netroots? The left or the right?

I'd bet the left more than the right. the right is sort of crazy right now. kind of like the sunnis in baghdad. it's over but they can't accept it.

far from re examining themselves after the election, they have gotten nastier and more conspiratorial. I doubt ron's honesty would resonate with many of them now.

True enough Lester. How weird would it be for the leftroots to take up a Republican cause?

Good for you Lester. I'd like to see Paul get some steam up.

at the least, he could be the Ross perot guy who makes the debates more interesting

I'm afraid he stands about as much a chance as Perot of getting anywhere.
