It's about time

Further justifying the respect I have for him, Senator Joe Lieberman has introduced a bill to increase the paltry death benefit given to the survivors of the brave men and women of our services who give their lives in the cause of freedom.
"You can't value a life. But we know that we can do a lot better than $12,000 for the families of those who have given their lives in our defense," said Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn.

Lieberman wants to boost the death benefit to $100,000 and make it retroactive to all U.S. personnel killed in Afghanistan and Iraq. He's joined by Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions.

"We need to have this kind of benefit. It goes to a family, regardless of rank. Anyone who gives their life for their country will receive this benefit," Sessions said.
If the Democrats had nominated this decent and honorable man, they may have been surprised by the results.

Instead they chose a vapid, pompous prig.
