Man, when it comes to Stumblin' Bumblin' John McCain, and his trusty sidekick, Mini-Me Lieberman, this stuff practically writes itself.
About a week after SB John finally was told that he had to dump the Hateful Hagee, with the latest reports surfacing on Hagee's account of how, actually, Hitler helped the Jews, Mini-Me Lieberman isn't ready to let go;
Max Blumenthal: Joseph Lieberman To Headline Upcoming Pastor Hagee Summit
And in light of all the recent rants on Hagee, this really shines for Mini-Me;
Last year, when Lieberman spoke at Hagee's summit, he compared the Texas televangelist to the biblical prophet Moses, dubbing him "an Ish Elochim," or "a man of God." Unless he rescinds his pledge to appear at this year's summit, Lieberman can be expected to deliver another soul-stirring tribute.And Steven Benen, over on The Carpetbagger Report asks;
So, it’s not that Hagee loves Israel, so much as he foresees a blood-soaked war in the Middle East that leads to Jesus’ return, at which point the Jews who survive will become Christians.
Lieberman is not only comfortable with all of this, but is even willing to headline one of Hagee’s events?
Brad, from Sadly No, wonders "It’s Time We Redefine The Term, ‘Self-Loathing Jew,’ No?"
Phoenix Woman, on Mercury Rising predicts "This Should Kill Any Talk Of Putting Lieberman On McCain’s Ticket", giving some advice to Mini-Me Lieberman;
Hey, Joe: Last time I looked, Moses didn’t advocate establishing the Jews in Israel just so they could be the disposable caretakers of the staging area for the end of the world.
We keep telling you, this campaign is going to side-splitting fun!
