Mike Jacobs loves Joe Liberman, Joe Lieberman's war.

But not enough our young turncoat to fight it, at least from anywhere less secure than the Starbucks on Peachtree. I don't blame him. You can't get good Starbucks in Iraq anymore. From Political Insider:

On a national level, Jacobs also pronounced himself uncomfortable with the direction that Democrats are taking on foreign policy. His soulmate is U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman, who like Jacobs is Jewish. He draws a direct parallel between Lieberman’s experiences with Democrats, and his own.

“The parallels are uncanny,” he said. Only half in jest.

Oh, Mike. You are funny. Funny that you didn't mention your support for the Iraq War in your delusional little farewell; guess it doesn't sell as well as the other cliches, even if it is undoubtedly more sincere.

Otherwise, like a good little Republican, he whines that poor, pitiable Lee Morris was denied his rightful place as chair of the Fulton County Commission by John Lewis, Shirley Franklin, and Andrew Young; really, how dare they remind the voters of Fulton County that Lee Morris was a Republican, let alone that Republicans like Lee Morris have done everything in their power to disenfranchise voters, from support voter ID to oppose reauthorization of the Voting Rights Act.

It's so unsporting of Democrats to tell the truth, isn't it?

I'm glad that no one asked him about Lynn Westmoreland. God knows how outraged he would be if anyone were to suggest that Lynn Westmoreland's opposition to the Emmett Till Unsolved Civil Rights Crimes Act were anything other than dedication to "fiscal responsibility." I bet he'd be so outraged, he'd spill his latte, poor boy.
