    Lieberman is upset because like the spoiled child that he is, he's suddenly discovered he can't have it both ways. He thinks himself a bipartisan lawmaker by kissing Bush's ass. Then he turns around and tells us, incorrectly, how many times he has stood against the president and his policies.

    Neither of things is borne out by the facts: he has not been bipartisan - he's caved on nearly everything Bush and the neocons have stood for, especially on Iraq, rather than trying to forge true bipartisanship by standing on principle and finding common ground; and he has not stood against the president or his policies unless it was politically expedient for him to do so (the presidential electioneering, as so clearly outlined by mcjoan).

    Lieberman has flunked the standard test again and again about what loyalty is, what decency is, and what true bipartisanship means. He deserves nothing but our scorn for being the biggest turncoat of the Democratic Party. Sorry, but you reap what you sow, Joe.
