Here's 40 reasons for Democrats, independents, and moderate Republicans to oppose Joe Lieberman.

Re: Coaching isn't life or death; it's more important by Mike Bianchi, Orlando Sentinel, Sunday 8/6/06:

Having lived with a father who coached both basketball and soccer on a collegiate level, I certainly take no issue with Mike Bianchi's basic premise: coaching is all-too-consuming a proposition for many in the profession. However, in an effort to underpin his supposition, Mike points to Nick Saban's recent decision to "just say no" to an invitation for dinner with President Bush as the ultimate case-in-point.

Forget about Reagan's Cadillac-driving "Welfare Queens," Bill Frist, George W. Bush, and the Republicans controlling Congress want to create a permanent class of tax exempt, "Welfare Lords and Ladies."

Two years ago, my friend Anne and I were in northern Israel, where, for the last month, Hezbollah missiles have been falling and killing. We'd just had dinner at a Chinese restaurant in the coastal town of Tiberias and were driving back to the kibbutz bed and breakfast at which we were staying for the night.

Call it what you will, “a war on terror,” “sectarian violence,” “a civil war,” but no matter what you call it, it still means innocent people are dying every day in a preemptive unnecessary war that has no winners and a whole lot of losers!!!

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

The Washington Post often has bizarre commentaries with neo-con logic that twists itself into contortions that no pretzel could rival.

But an item by one Robert Kagan advances the preposterous notion that Lieberman is being targeted for being an honest man. Like Bush, Lieberman may think he's honest, but as we pointed out his Sunday news talk show statements indicated that he can peddle mistruths, lies and personal historical revisionism with the best of the Republicans.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

Joe Lieberman's continued support of Iraq and Bush has led to understandable anger from the Democrats he abandoned (and praise from the ultra-conservatives he has joined, like Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter). On the verge of a vitally significant primary election Tuesday, it’s important to remember that Lieberman hasn't just been a passive follower, he has been among the most active proponents of Iraq since the beginning when he led Congress in deciding to give Bush a blank check.

Subject: Circling the Wagons

Just saw an interview with Senator Chris Dodd on Hardball speaking about campaigning for his good friend, Senator Joe Lieberman. Seems that Dodd has canceled a trip to the politician’s favorite Recess spot of Iraq and the Middle East to stay home and help Joe out.

A year ago today, about 100 of us marched down Prairie Chapel Road in the awful Texas heat into history. Today, with very short notice, dozens of us marched down the same road, with the same results: no meeting with the cowardly cowboy wanna-be in chief.
