    Lieberman is not a democrat, he is a war monger, super hawkish on the Middle East, who cares more about Israel than he does about America

    It's not personal, it's strictly business...The Dems want a filibuster-proof 60 member Senate and they are so close with the race in Alaska going their way and who knows what will happen in the Georgia runoff or the Minnesota recount...
    As LBJ once famously said of J. Edgar Hoover, "I'd rather have him on the inside of the tent pi**ing out, than on the outside pi**ing in." If you get to 59, you want to placate Joe to keep him on your side, if possible.

    I'm all for it. It was a pragmatic decision, and on most issues Lieberman is well to the left of most Republicans.

    The vote went something like 42 to 13 in favor. That outcome isn't what's interesting though. What's interesting is how they conducted the vote in the first place. By secret ballot.

    There are few people on this planet who grate on my nerves like this pantywaste. Actually, Dick Cheney, aka, Dr. Evil, makes my blood pressure rise 20 points every time he opens his psycopathic mouth. I would place him as the number one assh*le in America today, with Paulson running a close second, and the boy King closing up the rear (so to speak).
