Lieberman's speech - Partisan Hell in Washington/Hope in Iran

Reading Joe Lieberman’s speech to AIPAC the other day was a depressing experience, not because I disagree with him, but because I agree with him:

Increasingly, the debate over our foreign policy is becoming so polarized, so partisan, so bound up in the battles we are having here in Washington, that it seems blind to the real battle outside of America, the challenge of our time from the Islamist extremists who want to destroy us all, who attacked America on September 11, 2001, and intend to do so again.

He goes on from there, but that’s the gist of it, and, of course, it’s getting worse every day.

In Iran, however, there is hope.
