Joe-Mentum


JOE-MENTUM….Cornerite Yuval Levin passes along this tidbit from the inauguration:

This was, understandably, a very partisan crowd in which I was badly out of place. The loudest boos, to my surprise, were not for Bush and Cheney, who got plenty, but for Joe Lieberman when he was shown on the huge television screens — more than one voice could be heard shouting “traitor” around where I was standing….

Poor Joe. In certain enlightend precincts, anyway, he’s more hated than even Dick Cheney. How many people can say that?
