This Should Kill Any Talk Of Putting Lieberman On McCain’s Ticket

Posted by Phoenix Woman on May 27, 2008

The gent we last saw offering up words of praise for McCain’s endorser, John “Israel Must Die” Hagee, is so unpopular that he can’t even deliver his own son-in-law for McCain: Rabbi Ethan Tucker is voting for Obama.

Oh, and even after his buddy McCain finally rejects and denounces Hagee, Lieberman is still embracing the guy and all he stands for:

Senator Joseph Lieberman is scheduled to headline Pastor John Hagee’s 2008 Christians United For Israel Washington-Israel Summit this July 22. In accepting Hagee’s invitation, Lieberman became the most senior elected representative confirmed to appear at the annual gala. Last year, when Lieberman spoke at Hagee’s summit, he compared the Texas televangelist to the biblical prophet Moses, dubbing him “an Ish Elochim,” or “a man of God.” Unless he rescinds his pledge to appear at this year’s summit, Lieberman can be expected to deliver another soul-stirring tribute.

Hagee’s vitriolic condemnation of Catholicism, his jeremiad declaring Hurricane Katrina divine punishment for New Orleans’ hosting of a “homosexual rally,” and his generally disturbing apocalyptic theology became national news last February when John McCain accepted his endorsement in a widely publicized ceremony.

While initially resisting pressure to reject Hagee’s endorsement, McCain finally ended his relationship with Hagee when a sermon by the preacher describing the Holocaust as the will of God registered on the mainstream media’s radar (Hear the now-infamous sermon here).

Hey, Joe: Last time I looked, Moses didn’t advocate establishing the Jews in Israel just so they could be the disposable caretakers of the staging area for the end of the world.
