Pshaw

"Lieberman was widely ridiculed for calling his fifth-place showing in the 2004 New Hampshire presidential primary a three-way tie for third." -- Washington Post

On "Joementum"

Even though the word's been laughed into the ground for years, I still tip my hat to whichever anonymous Kos-person defined "Joementum" as "1/momentum" in a primary thread many years ago.

But on a more serious note, I'm worried about this Lamont guy--everybody knows he was Bin Laden's man in the CT primary. So the terrorists have now officially won (52% to 48%), right? Sure makes a fella stop and think.

My predictions: (1) Lamont's victory in the Connecticut Democratic primary will embolden the enemies of freedom all across the Middle East; (2) this emboldenification of the terrorists will threaten the fragile peace President Bush's leadership has brought to the region; (3) the situation there will begin deteriorate, jeopardizing the President's bold plan to fight them there so we don't have to fight them here; (4) we're gonna get hit again.

So, thanks a lot, Connecticut. You all are the Gavrilo Princip of the next World War.

Not too different, really, from what's being said at places like this.

Jeebus. White House spokesman Tony Snow:

"And the real question for the American people to ask themselves is, do you take the war on terror seriously, with all the developments going on around the world? And, if so, how do you fight it to win? There seem to be two approaches. And in the Connecticut race one of the approaches is ignore the difficulties and walk away.

"Now, when the United States walked away, in the opinion of Osama bin Laden in 1991, bin Laden drew from that the conclusion that Americans were weak and wouldn't stay the course, and that led to September 11th. And it's important to realize that terrorists are not simply inspired by American engagement in the world, but they have their own agenda and it is an agenda that if we turn around and look the other way, they're not going to ignore -- they will continue to build strength and they will continue to build adherence. And it is a vitally important debate to have."

I think I said it better, but I'm not sure--Snow doesn't make a lot of sense.
