enjoy it now, joe
Joe Lieberman is "savoring life" as a post-partisan actor in the Senate. He is enjoying his cake and eating it too - chairing the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee as a "Democrat" while simultaneously campaigning openly to elect Republican John McCain to the Presidency.
And the Democrats are just taking it least Joe finish his Benedict Arnold-like path to full-fledged membership in the Republican Party, giving Darth Dick Cheney and the GOP control of the Senate.
For a few months.
I look forward to January 2009 when the Democrats have expanded their control of the Senate beyond 51-49 and they can give Joe the dues for his disloyalty. I wouldn't just remove him as a committee chairman - I'd fire him.
NOT for his policy views, not even for being pro-war-in-Iraq. But you cross the line when you actively oppose your party's nominee for President.
