  •  you should think about the concepts (5+ / 0-)

    behind scardanelli's very apt point:

    It's dishonorable in all of them.

    Sure, that's an opinion, but it's also more than an opinion. It's a statement that represents an idea of unity and solidarity behind a broad platform of common values, one of which for Dems even happens to be the right to dissent, but not the right to betray and then expect no consequences; and that concept for Joe is something he just doesn't really understand--despite all of his posturing.

    What I think is important here is that maybe you, heineken, should think about this particular opinion that scardanelli voiced, and how it sums up exactly what it is that pisses so many of us very reasonable people off about Joe Lieberman.

    I appreciate your concern and even for stating your opinion in that it provides the impetus for this discussion. However, the party has the momentum again, see how Joe turns into the wind? He's looking out for himself and himself alone. He should caucus with the Dems, it's smart for him on so many levels, but this doesn't mean we have anything to gain by letting him off easy for his dishonorable behavior, because it's just Joe-ism masquerading under a debased notion of "centrism."
