Why Lieberman lost.

Last week Ron Rubin wrote an article at The Jewish Press called "Why Lieberman will lose" and he was right on the money of why he did in fact lose. The last two paragraphs say it all:

"Politically, it would have been far less costly for Lieberman to join the guilt-ridden “illegitimacy of military power” wing of his party. But to overlook the brutality of hate-filled fanatics would be to betray his bedrock religious principles and expose this country and the Middle East to an even more likely terrorist threat.

The conclusion to be drawn from Lieberman’s pending defeat is that his party’s self-styled “progressive” human-rights base is ideologically bankrupt when it comes to fighting the most bigoted enemy of our time."
