During that interview, Mr. Beck said that invading Iraq on the basis of a perceived threat of weapons of mass destruction was a "nice side benefit" but that the broader goal was to "go and pop the head of the snake in Iran."This is now Ned Lamont's race to lose. If he isn't able to exploit Lieberman's kooky blunder, he will have no one to blame but himself.
"I don't think anybody had the courage or could actually come out and say that with world politics the way they are," Mr. Beck added.
Mr. Lieberman responded: "Well, you're right. And I think if I fault the administration for anything before the war--because I think we did the right thing in going in to overthrow Saddam--it's that they oversold the WMD part of the argument."
UPDATE: Elsewhere, The Times finally notes that the word "macaca" is indeed a racial slur--a full week after this was common knowledge to anyone paying close attention.
What is today--make-up day?
