Senator Joe Lieberman, the
Republican mole Independent from the “Conneticut for Lieberman” party, has stated he will become the first senator in history to break with his caucus party and filibuster any bill that has a public health insurance option.
Seriously, does this surprise anyone besides Harry Reid at this point? The guy is the political equivalent to Grima Wormtongue. What’s the over/under on his chairmanship in the Homeland Security committee being stripped — given that he only kept by virtue of begging for it (and seniority) after leaving the Democratic ticket when he got his ass handed to him in the primary by Ned Lamont, ran against him on the independent ticket, and subsequently endorsed John McCain during the general election? Face it Reid, the man is an operative for the other party, and has been for years.
