Lieberman kisses a little Hagee ass for McSame

Last week McSame rejected the support of Pastor John Hagee because of Hagee's hateful and destructive rhetoric. But there is one person who you've constantly seen standing next to McSame: Conn. Sen. Joseph Lieberman. Lieberman even sits on McSame's shoulder to correct him when he mixes up Shia and Sunni. He may even be McSame's vice-presidential choice. And the very same Joe Lieberman is headlining Hagee's Christian Zionist meeting (pretentiously called a Summit) on July 22. Is Lieberman standing in for McSame? Lieberman is one of the sleaziest characters in national politics.

According to Max Blumenthal on The Huffington Post:
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.
