Senator Joe Lieberman just committed political suicide. Not only did he deny that he made a quote in which he suggested that all good citizens should trust President Bush without question, but he even denied the credibility of bloggers and The New York Times.
From a partial transcript:
Lieberman: This quote is totally out of context. You might have gotten it from the bloggers, who love to do this.
McEnroe: No actually I got it…
Lieberman: Read the whole speech, it’s below your standards.
McEnroe: Senator actually I got it from the New York Times.
Lieberman: Well that’s just as bad! Go back and read the speech, be more responsible.
