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.

    The Democratic party leadership could absolutely ruin Lieberman if they were willing to commit to it. Of course the excuse for not ruining him in the first place was that they needed his vote. Now that it’s obvious that they don’t have his vote on anything important anyway, the excuse is probably gonna stay the same. The Democrats are useless cowards.

    One still has to marvel at the sight of Joe Lieberman, who’s always been a reliable supporter of useless military pork-barrel spending, all of a sudden acting as though he’s some kind of spend-thrift.
