They used to be “San Francisco Democrats,” a phrase coined by former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Jeane Kirkpatrick to describe the party’s 1984 convention. But they have now morphed into Taliban Democrats because they are willing to “kill” one of their own, if he does not conform to the narrow and rigid agenda of the party’s kook fringe.
Mr. Lieberman’s one “sin,” in the eyes of the Taliban Democrats, was that he supported the effort to defeat the insurgent-terrorists in Iraq. As a Jew, Mr. Lieberman is particularly sensitive to those who have targeted the Jewish people for extinction. But even if he weren’t Jewish, he would still “get it,” because he understands what’s at stake in the region and has correctly concluded that the consequences of American failure in Iraq would be catastrophic.
Well, mainstream Republican writers now have taken the tactics of the Leftist Kosytes.
