    …..and we’re laughing at him because the Democrats slapped his wrist and are hoping he won’t betray them again????

    Seems to me he’ll be the one who gets the last laugh.

    We’re still screwed.

  2. Jim Jenkins says:

    ha

  3. bobaloo says:

    I obviously didn’t support Lieb’s endorsement, but I still like him. I can’t blame the guy when his own party disowned him first.

  4. bobaloo says:

    Oh, and he’s still chairman of the Homeland Sec. committee. Why are we laughing again?

  5. Gordon Smith says:

    Here’s hoping that Obama’s got him on a short leash. One misstep and sayonara?

    The Democratic wing of the Democratic Party challenged him in the form of Ned Lamont in the primary. Those voters voted for Lamont. Lieberman then bailed into “Connecticut for Lieberman” Party, making Joe a bit like our own Army of Mumpower. Lieberman then threw in with the Republicans who voted him into the Senate.

    You can say that “his party” disowned him, or you could say that the voters said they didn’t want him. Either way, Ol’ Joementum is a slippery salamander who wants his status and power more than anything else.

    Here’s hoping Jim Martin takes Chambliss down in the Georgia Senate runoff and that Franken beats Coleman in Minnesota. It’ll make Lieberman less relevant than ever.

  6. Doug Gibson says:

    I don’t like Lieberman, and it’s personal. I was three feet away from him at a Democratic phonebank in New Haven in 1996, and the jerk couldn’t be bothered to shake my hand – or anyone else’s, for that matter, except the person in charge of the office. He didn’t even make eye contact, smile, and wave.

    Anyway, bob, after having accepted the honor of being the Democratic vice-presidential nominee, he could have shown a lot more interest in unity and comity with the rest of his party instead of backing Bush to the hilt on matters of defense, national security, and foreign policy. In for a penny, in for a pound. If he had doubts about which party he wanted to belong to, he should have simply said “no” to Al Gore.

    In North Carolina you can’t file as an independent after losing a primary – you file once, months before the primary, and that’s when you make your choice about your affiliation. If Joe had such significant qualms about being a Democrat, why didn’t he leave the party before he lost the primary? Given that he owed a lot of his prestige and seniority to the Democratic voters of Connecticut who had nominated him time and time again, continuing his candidacy after losing the nomination was the ultimate act of bad faith.

  7. Good news goes around. Totally unrelated, but the infamous Ted Stevens (AK) has just gone down in flames.

    (Go Heels!)

    One misstep?! Leiberman wanted McCain to be Prez. Just how many missteps adds up to one?

    This is yet another ample demonstration of Democrat spine.

  9. politics is the art of compromise – The Dems. need LOLieberjoke for a 60 Senate majority which is in reach, what with Stevens going down and AL the man Franken so close to victory – if the progressive momentum can continue maybe in 2 years LOLieberjoke will no longer be needed and then I would say “hasta la vista, baby”. Got to hand it to Joe, he knows how to play the game.

    So being a Hawk and sticking to your beliefs basically means you’re no longer worthy of being a Democrat. Good to know.

    You can say that “his party” disowned him, or you could say that the voters said they didn’t want him.

    Considering he’s still a Senator I think it’s fair to say the voters did want him.

  11. bobaloo says:

    And by the way, who do you have to thank for Lieb’s retaining the chair of the HS Committee? No less than our Prez-elect.

    Slippery salamander…

    I think of him more as a slippery slug that has crawled out of Satan’s ass to help spread death and evil through the world. Truly one of the lowest forms of life in the government.

  13. Gordon Smith says:

    Bob,

    The Republican voters wanted him. The Democratic voters voted him out in the primary.

    And I think that his anti-Obama stance will cost him his will. I’m wagering that if Joe votes against any Obama initiatives, he’ll lose that Chairmanship. It’s hardball, not playground. While I think that he certainly chose the wrong bus, it’s pragmatic to keep him on if we have guarantees that he’ll be with the Dems on health care, pulling out of Iraq, closing Gitmo, transforming our energy economy, etc.

  14. Doug Gibson says:

    How is slandering the presidential nominee of the party you then expect to caucus with “sticking to your beliefs”?

    And the point is not that I disagree with him, or dislike him, it’s that the voters of the party to whom he owed his seat in the Senate decided they didn’t like what he was doing. They didn’t agree with his beliefs, and Joe decided that the best response was to betray the years of trust they had placed in him and run as a candidate from a different party. Boy, you can’t do much better than that as a display of integrity and character.

  15. With Alaska the DNC is now at 58. When they reach 61, then they can send ‘Joe the Liebermann’ packing.

  16. bobaloo says:

    Doug and Gordon,
    You may be partially right, but obviously the voters of Connecticut as a whole wanted him. I really don’t see how this is arguable.
    Gordon, your point about playing hardball is well taken. And that’s what Lieberman obviously does.

  17. Gordon Smith says:

    The voters of Connecticut did want him. But the voters in the Democratic primary didn’t. That’s when he left the party. Repeat – He. Left. The. Party.

  18. He. Left. The. Party.

    well he did and he did not: at the end of the day he is still caucusing with the Dem. party and he is needed, you may not like it Gordon but that is the reality, yes?! (maybe Joe is setting himself up to run as a “Maverick” in 2012?)
