A bit of comic relief for tonight's Clinton-Obama debate, courtesy of the irrepressible Joe Lieberman

Iraq is bound to come up in tonight's debate. On the principle of "I have to laugh, because it hurts too much too cry," here's a bit of comic relief from the On-Again-Off-Again Democrat Joe Lieberman (they need his Senate vote when they can get it, he needs his committee assignments) -- Bush fanboy, McCain buddy, endorser and wannabe advisor and all around armchair warrior.
Lieberman likes expressions of American power. A few years ago, I was in a movie theatre in Washington when I noticed Lieberman and his wife, Hadassah, a few seats down. The film was "Behind Enemy Lines," in which Owen Wilson plays a U.S. pilot shot down in Bosnia. Whenever the American military scored an onscreen hit, Lieberman pumped his fist and said, "Yeah!" and "All right!"
From From Jeffrey Goldberg's New Yorker profile of Joe Lieberman, quoted by Glenn Greenwald in his wonderful post about the neocon theorists of perpetual war against what they call Islamofascism, those stay-at-home cheerleaders of a neverending war against evil who brought us Iraq, won't consider cutting their losses and dream of more wars against people who hate freedom.
