Lieberman Wins One for Democracy

And credit to Sam Brownback too. Just got this from a Senate staffer:

yesterday, during the debate on the Foreign Operations appropriations

House (which came in at $50 million) when the conference committee takes

up the bill.

Let’s see if Pelosi and Lantos (who seems to have been taking huge quantities of dumb pills recently, between being one of the worst Dems on the war, and accompanying Madame P to Damascus for her triumphal appeasement tour) will lift their wizened fingers for the Iranians.

These two groups are spoiling for a fight, but I always thought Warner Bros. and I got along pretty well. What did I do to deserve the tidal wave of garbage that is Aquaman itself? I refuse to ...
