Lieberman Must Pay

The Senate is about to vote on the fate of Joe Lieberman. Obama has been gracious. He says that he forgives Lieberman for things said on the campaign trail. Obama can afford to be gracious. We cannot. I say take him out.

Look, I'm all for turning the other cheek, but let's face it you only have two cheeks and Lieberman has slapped both. There has to be some consequences for bad acts and nobody had acted worse than Joe, except for maybe the rest of the Republican Party. I understand the dynamic of trying to get to that almighty filibuster proof 60 number in the Senate. But there are other Senators on the Republicans side who would like to keep their seats like Collins and Snowe of Maine who can make up the difference on certain votes. They can smell the blood in the water. They know which way the wind is blowing. We need to do this. Lieberman needs to be stripped of his chairmanship. Call your Senators and tell them.

If Lieberman wants to continue to act the fool. Let him go ahead. We'll see how CT deals with him come his next election. I'm sure they're already looking up Ned Lamont's phone number.
