``I know you appreciate the enormity of the task ahead of you,'' said Sen. Joseph Lieberman

enormity:
1. The quality of passing all moral bounds; excessive wickedness or outrageousness.
2. A monstrous offense or evil; an outrage.

Freudian slip?

I thought it might be about the Republican National Committee's suspicious inclination to shamelessly pander to right-wing ieologues, thus agonizing moderates and liberal Americans ever closer to another civil war. They seem to think we won't put up a bloody fight...

ieologues = ideologues
agonizing = antagonizing

anewc2: you forgot the third part of the definition:

3. Usage Problem. Great size; immensity: “Beyond that, [Russia's] sheer enormity offered a defense against invaders that no European nation enjoyed” (W. Bruce Lincoln).

Which causes the quote to make sense.
