Goodness, Liebermann is an ass

Last night, Lieberman said that Obama voted "to cut off funding for our American troops on the battlefield."

From this morning's Washington Post Fact Checker

If, by voting against funding for a strategy he opposed, Obama voted to "cut off funding for the troops," then so did almost every Republican in the Senate -- and Lieberman himself -- when they voted against a $124-billion appropriations bill on April 26, 2007, that would have funded operations in Iraq and Afghanistan but also required Bush to begin withdrawing troops from Iraq. (McCain missed the vote on that bill, which passed 51-46 and was subsequently vetoed by Bush.)

Tell us again what an "honest person" Joe Lieberman is.
