Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) easily won a vote to remain chairman of a key committee today and will stay in the Democratic caucus despite his high-profile criticism of President-elect Barack Obama and his support of Sen. John McCain during the presidential campaign.
To recap: Lieberman actively campaigns against the Democratic president, up to and including implications that he may be a terrorist, undermines the last Democratic president at every turn, is defeated in the Democratic primary and runs on an “independent” ticket, and is the #1 supporter of Bush on the “Democratic” side. Lieberman is also the head of one of the most important Senate committees around (Homeland Security), where he has yet to conduct a single investigation or question the administration.
Democrats win both houses of Congress and the Presidency in a landslide and do not need Lieberman’s vote.
Do the Democrats kick him from the Committee chair? Do they refuse to let him caucus with them?
Lieberman retains everything.
Jesus fuck, Dems, can you possibly be any more of a collection of wimps? He actively attempted to destroy your party.
Lesson to be learned: senators hate the Left and outsiders far more than they hate being stabbed in the back.
Oh, what I wouldn’t give for an actual party with some balls and the ability to enact progressive legislation.
Just fucking shameful.
