Joe Lieberman is not only the Dick of the Week, he's making a run at eternal Dent-status.
[C&L] The GOP opening remarks against the Democrats amendments to get out of Iraq were given by Joe Lieberman. It's no longer a matter of just not voting with the party, but he publicly opened the debate for the GOP.
"I'd like to now offer the first fifteen minutes [of my time] to the Senator from Connecticut"
"Mr. President, I rise to oppose the amendments introduced by the Senator from Michigan and others and the other amendment introduced by the Senators from Massachusetts and Wisconsin--I remember in that debate quoting the biblical wisdom in warning that 'if the sound of the trumpet is uncertain-who will follow into battle.' I suppose in our time we might amend that to say 'if the sound of the trumpet is uncertain-who will stay in battle"
"...and if I could also associate myself with the remarks made by the Senator from Connecticut. I agree with them wholeheartedly. I thought they were incredibly articulately made and hits on all the relevant points as to why these two amendments should be defeated."
You didn't just voice concern or disagreement with your Democratic colleagues, you literally went over to the other side and took shots at your own party!!
There's been speculation that if Ned Lamont beats Lieberman in a primary, he'd run as an independant candidate for CT Senator. Why wait, Joe? With this latest betrayal I don't even know how you can pretend to be a Democrat any longer.
After you both lose this fall, you and Little Ricky can sit around and console each other while you wonder why Bush doesn't kiss you any more and your Republican buddies never take your calls.
And your ad sucks too.
