    My much wiser wife says that not welcoming him  back is cutting off your nose to spite your face- that he is a decent man who stood by his beliefs.  I say any politician who believes that he can do an end run around the will of the people needs to be sent a message. I say to Democratic Senators- Have a spine, stand on principle.  If he wants to caucus with his rethug friends when he is denied a chairmanship, well, I hope the door does'nt hit him on the ass on his way out.

    Good news! Jimmy found the salt! C'mon by with some limes!

    •  He caucuses with them (3+ / 0-)

      We lose the Senate. He is the tie breaker like it or not. He votes for McConnell it's a 50-50 Senate, and Cheney breaks the tie by voting. Joe has a lot of power, the bastard.

      Don't like crooks in D.C.? Vote Against Charles Taylor (NC-11) who is one of them.

        If he's smart, he'll realize he could easily lose his status in '08.  If he wants anything from the Dems, he'd better be a good boy.

        The media are only as liberal as the conservative businesses that own them.

        FBI agents have requested an interview with the official, Bunnatine Greenhouse, the chief of contracting with the Army Corps of Engineers, on her allegations regarding a 2003 contract with Halliburton to repair Iraqi oil fields, her lawyer, Michael Kohn, said Thursday.

        Greenhouse, in an Oct. 21 letter to the acting Army secretary, charged that officials had shown favoritism toward Halliburton, the Houston-based conglomerate formerly led by Vice President Dick Cheney, in the awarding and oversight of the oil contract.

        Let the Hearings begin!! Gore/Dean 2008!!

      •  He might vote for himself for majority leader (0+ / 0-)

        Lieberman could go to the GOP and offer to caucus with them if they all vote for him as majority leader.

        OK, that won't happen, but if he wanted to hand the GOP the senate majority, he could demand from them anything else short of that. Chairmanship of any committee, judicial appointments for his friends, etc., etc., and the GOP would probably give it to him.

        So this is how liberty dies -- with thunderous applause.
