Lieberman vs. Lennon

Seen on Billmon's Whiskey Bar: Strawberry Fields. Contrasting Sen. Joe Lieberman's comments on Iraq:
I have just returned from my fourth trip to Iraq in the past 17 months and can report real progress there. More work needs to be done, of course, but the Iraqi people are in reach of a watershed transformation from the primitive, killing tyranny of Saddam to modern, self-governing, self-securing nationhood...

...with John Lennon's psychadelic lyrics:
Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see. It’s getting hard to be someone but it all works out, it doesn’t matter much to me.
Let me take you down, ’cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields. Nothing is real. And nothing to get hung about. Strawberry Fields forever.

Read all, I entreat you. If nothing else, it will get "Strawberry Fields Forever" stuck in your head, which is good for you.
