Lieberman loss a "loss for centrists"? Good riddance.

The Dallas Morning News published an editorial today decrying Senator Joseph Lieberman's loss in the Democratic primary as a "loss for centrists".

If being a "centrist" means adopting the worst ideas of both the Republicans and the Democrats, Senator Lieberman's primary demise is nothing to cry over. While Republicans favor economic freedoms and are willing to compromise personal freedoms, while Democrats do the opposite, Joseph Lieberman is quite willing to compromise both, putting his political philosophy closer to authoritarianism than either of the philosophies the two major parties claim to champion.

As Hammer of Truth writer (and LPHQ worker) Stephen Gordon said, "what America needs is not watered down tyranny, but extremism in defense of liberty."

I do not agree with Nigel Watt on this issue. What he essentially is saying about Senator Lieberman is that he takes the authoritarian views of the Republicans and Democrats, while in congress, Lieberman voted 90%. Lieberman is a pretty hard core Democrat with the exception of his support of the War on Terror.
