So the Senate Democrats decided to let Joe Lieberman keep his chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Oversight Committee. What a bunch of spineless weasels.
This just goes to prove that the welfare of their buddies in the "Most Exclusive Club In America" goes well before principals.
This is why Republicans usually win elections. This is why Republicans control the media. This is why Republicans filibuster while Democrats cower and form "Gangs of Fourteen." This is why talk radio is blanketed with conservatives and progressives have to scream at the top of their lungs to be heard. This is everything that is wrong with politics.
Maybe it's just me but if someone goes out on a crusade to destroy your political party, lies about Obama's record regarding funding the troops, speaks at the Republican convention, campaigns in close elections against democrats (see Al Franken), holds no oversight hearings in order to protect the crimes of George W. Bush, I think a little more than a gentle slap on the wrist is in order.
This is an insult to democrats everywhere who gave their money and time to fight the other Joe Liebermans known as republicans. What an insult to us all.
I guess membership does have its privileges. Shame on them.
