Taliban Democrats

This is the picture of Cal Thomas he chooses to have over his articles at Townhall currently.

He looks creepy.

That might strike you as kind of a low blow, ill fitting the high minded tone we try to take around here. But since given his latest article, I'm fine with that.

In his latest article he writes about Taliban Democrats, meaning those who deposed Joe Lieberman from his rightful place.
. . . they have now morphed into Taliban Democrats because they are willing to "kill" one of their own, if he does not conform to the narrow and rigid agenda of the party's kook fringe.

Lieberman's one "sin," in the eyes of the Taliban Democrats, was that he supported the effort to defeat the insurgent-terrorists in Iraq.
Right here we have a bit of a lie, don't we Mr. Thomas? Lieberman's one sin is his support for the Iraq war? Not exactly true.

Even if it were, his support for the war is not shared by a majority of the people and the vast majority of Connecticut's Democrats. Ironically, Republicans are trying to portray opposition to the war as a fringe or kook position.

Of course there is another benefit to calling us "Taliban Democrats." Ties us to some pretty bad people over in the middle east, doesn't it, Mr. Thomas?
