George McGovern Speaks
Lieberman supporters keep saying that Lamont's win signifies a dangerous leftward swing by the Democrats towards failed McGovernite ideas.
McGovern just spoke on the matter to Newsweek. When the guy says stuff like this, I have to wonder why we assume being McGovernite is such a bad thing:
Q: The Republicans are saying Lamont’s win means the Democrats are anti-war and weak on national security.
McG: They’ve done that for 50 years—saying Democrats are soft on communism. Now they’re saying Democrats aren’t tough enough on terrorism. That argument is beginning to wear thin. In the time we’ve been in Iraq, the insurgents have gotten stronger and we’ve weakened our standing in the world. I used to say we were never more isolated than in the deepest jungles of Vietnam; now I add the Arabian Desert to that.
