Congratulations to Ned Lamont

Congratulations to Ned Lamont for winning the Democratic nomination for Senate inConnecticut. It is a victory for all of us that (previously) Democrat neocon Joe Leiberman has been rebuked for his support for the Iraq war.

Juan Cole puts it best:

[O]n foreign policy issues, Lieberman is a Neoconservative, and supports the Iraq project for the same reasons that Douglas Feith and Paul Wolfowitz (then number 3 and 2 respectively at the Pentagon) did. He tried to put himself in the tradition of Hubert Humphrey, but he was more honest when he also listed Scoop Jackson. Perle and the rest [who] started on Jackson's staff.

Perhaps the tide is turning.

Don't be fooled. Lamont is pro-Zionist, as shown in his appearance on the Colbert Report, where he expressed unwavering support for Israel.

I was just about to type just that -- Lamont is out-Zioning Lieberman.

Read Lamont's commentary in the Jewish magazine "The Forward" (available online) -- he might be *opposed* to Iraq *cough* but he has no hesitation in supporting Israel's genocide in Palestine and Lebanon.

A wolf in sheep's clothing, our Ned is, which is probably why Zionist *liberal* websites like Buzzflash and Daily Kos support him.
