fire joe lieberman

Joe Lieberman doesn't want to give up his chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee. Harry Reid is even offering to let him keep a chair, of a less important committee.

But Joe doesn't want to go.

Poor Joe. He's so misunderstood. Gosh, all he did was OPENLY CAMPAIGN AGAINST HIS PARTY'S NOMINEE FOR THE PRESIDENCY AND FOR THE OTHER GUY. And state openly that (to paraphrase slightly), a vote for Barack Obama was a vote for the destruction of the United States and Israel and the hideous death for us all.

Look, Joe Lieberman wasn't John McCain's only friend among Senate Democrats. But none of those friends campaigned against their party's leader, however sympathetic they may have been to McCain.

So as I said last June, if I were the Senate Dems, now that they have more than 51 seats, I'd fire Joe Lieberman. Kick him out of the Democratic caucus. Let Joe hang out with Republicans like Sam Brownback and David Vitter and James Inhofe. That is the company he has chosen to keep in campaign for the other party.

The anger against Joe Lieberman goes back to 2006. He was not the only Senator who continued to support a forever occupation.

But even then he was unique as a Democrat in going out of his way to taunt those whose support he demanded.
