Once upon a time, Joe Lieberman nearly ruined Barack Obama's career forever by going to the Republican National Convention and calling him a "young man" repeatedly while Obama was busy trying to win a campaign against an ancient War God and his evil, fecund snow mistress. Obama prevailed, of course, but since then everybody has hated Joe Lieberman's guts even more than they used to.


Now maybe the healing has begun, because Lieberman has started saying nice things about President Obama. He appreciates that our new president has good manners, a forgiving disposition, and the frigging ounce of political calculation necessary to keep him in the Democratic caucus despite Lieberman's distinctly twattish behavior last year.

The Connecticut independent, who faces re-election in 2012 in a state where Obama is popular, is eager to mend fences with Democrats still fuming over his criticism of Obama during the general election campaign.

Lieberman has applauded Obama's national security team. He gushed over Obama's "inspirational and unifying" inaugural. Lieberman even played a key role helping Obama win Senate passage of the economic stimulus plan.

So basically, Vinegar Joe is back to debasing himself for his latest boyfriend. Good luck in 2012, dude.

What did we say this morning? Something about how "They want a war with Iran," and "Please do not listen to news reports about Trump telling his people to cool their jets with the Iran talk, because they want a war with Iran, and all they are looking for is their trigger"?

News came out early this morning that Iran shot down a US drone in the Strait of Hormuz, outside Iranian waters. Let's see what our president and his war-bonering GOP shitmouths in Congress have had to say about that:

Great. Just great. So what's happening now?

Awesome. Just splendid. Trump is having a cuddle party today with John Bolton (who's had a hard-on to bomb Iran since the Bush administration); Mike Pompeo (who's been making the rounds lying and saying Iran and al Qaeda are best friends, thus implying that it's very legal and very cool for Trump to strike Iran without congressional authorization, based on the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) Congress voted for five days after 9/11); and Patrick Shanahan, the outgoing acting Defense secretary, who will make way for another acting Defense secretary, because who needs real Defense secretaries? (The new guy, Mark Esper, is part of the meeting too.) And as Senator Schatz points out above, Trump is emotionally unstable and doesn't know dick about foreign policy, so it's just great that he's having an emergency meeting with these unhinged hawks about this right now.

Tell us what this all means, unhinged hawk Lindsey Graham!
