and there's no turning back
paint a vulgar picture
my head's gonna crack like a bank
strike out like a wolf's endeavor
all the beating drums, the celebration guns
they hung him on a cross for me
running as fast as they can
i picked up that guy at the deadguy show
pussywhipped! pussywhipped! don't you know you're ...
bush knocked down the towers

what else can i say:
Via Jane Hamsher, the Connecticut newspaper Day says it's sorry for endorsing Joe Lieberman:
When The Day endorsed Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman for re-election in November 2006 it was supporting a candidate who demonstrated a history of pragmatic leadership and a willingness to seek bipartisan solutions.Similarly, I'd like to apologize for spending four years working for The New Republic. What was I thinking? They don't even pay well.
Lieberman should welcome this editorial. Ever since the Lamont primary victory, he's cultivated the seed of purest neoconservatism: a politics of resentment. Jacob Heilbrunn explains in They Knew They Were Right how neoconservatives sublimate the first-order questions of politics or policy to the intellectually evasive question of what The Enemy thinks -- not, say, al-Qaeda, but liberals. Whatever the State Department thinks (or is imagined to think), they're against that, and damn the merits of the case. Now Lieberman has yet another enemy: the squishes at the Day. Hooray for him! His decline into noxious paranoia can proceed apace.
