Some say that Democrats In Name Only
are an extinct, or even a mythical species. But I believe they exist.
The Dems are so kooked-out
now, one would not have to be truly 100, or even 50 percent Conservative to qualify as a DINO
. But even if they didn't exist, I would have to give Joe Lieberman an honorable mention. I even say, Thank God for Joe Lieberman
, even though I know that he votes with the Democrats most of the time.
In fact, Joe actually has been labelled by his own as a DINO
Compared to his peers, he has fairly frequenty sided with Republicans on key issues, like the war in Iraq and Free Trade. Lieberman also declared himself a "non combatant" in the 2006 congressional races and refused to say which party should have the majority. The Bush White House and Karl Rove openly lent him support, winning him a vast majority of Republican votes and the election. http://snipurl.com/bo7ss
He created quite a stir when he spoke at The RNC last year
And, he "launched consistent, deeply partisan attacks on President-elect Barack Obama
, questioning his patriotism and fitness to lead." He also stated that it was a "good question" to inquire whether Obama is a Marxist
Yes, Joe has been a thorn in the Democratic Party's side. I have to chuckle whenever I read one of their tirades
And let's not forget Zell Miller
, who actually gave the Keynote Address at the 2004 Republican National Convention
, where he derided the Democrats' "manic obsession to bring down our Commander-in-Chief."
Since the Inauguaration, one thing is certain. I'm sure feelin' a whole lot more love for these guys than the RINOs.
