Joel Award Winner of the Week
We announce the first Joel Award winner. The award is given to a person making dishonest flip-flopping statements. The winner this week is Joe Lieberman.

"It is clear that for the first time in a long time, there is reason for cautious optimism about Iraq."

I am confident that the situation is improving enough on the ground that by the end of this year we will being to draw down significant numbers of American troops and by the end of next year more than half of the troops who are there now will be home.
Lieberman was for withdrawing troops before he was against it.
