SINCE WHEN IS JIMMY CARTER A LIBERTARIAN?:

Carter Says He Hopes Lieberman Loses Election (Julie Farby, 9/14/06, All Headline News)

Lamont, who upset the three-term Lieberman last month in Connecticut's Democratic primary, got a boost Wednesday from former President Carter, who offered a blistering critique of Lieberman's support for the Iraq war, telling CNN's "Larry King Live," "He was one of the originators of public statements that misled the American people into believing that the Iraqi war was justified."

"He's joined in with the Republican spokespersons by saying that Democrats who disagree are really supporting terrorism," Carter said. "So for all these reasons, I've lost my confidence in Joe Lieberman and don't wish to see him re-elected."


Mr. Carter joins the NRO/TCS crowd in rooting against his own party.

OJ:

Do you think supporting Laffey in RI was akin to supporting Lamont? It seems that Lieberman got the nuts upset on one issue, while Chafee is barely a Republican (lifetime ACU rating of 37% and couldn't bring himself to vote for Bush in 2004). The sob sisters are rock-ribbed compared to him.

Yes. But the GOP is the grown up party, so Chaffee and Specter won.

Jimmah would vote for eternal damnation as long as it was for everyone...
