  •  Right. Reid just (5+ / 0-)

    lets telcom immunity go on the floor, helps destroy habeas corpus, continues the funding of wars, lets Bush appointees not respond to subpeonas, seeks "bipartisanship" (meaning give the rightwing what it wants for nothing), etc etc.

    You're right about "not even close." Lieberschmuck--a minor buffoonish cartoon who probably got McCain about zero votes--hasn't even come close to the active, substantive destruction of American interests that Reid has.

    Oh, and a major reason Leiberman is in office and not Lamont... Reid leading a parade of Dems to support Lieberman in '06.

    Meanwhile, CNN, via Firedoglake reports Reid has offered Lieberman the Chair of Veteran's Affairs. Yeah, Reid's on the people's side, alright.

    Lieberman must go. So must Reid. But Reid can do, and has done, the most damage of the two.

    Until we break the corporate virtual monopoly on what we hear and see, we keep losing, don't matter what we do.

      there will be plenty of time to hold Reid to task but we have to kick the concern troll from the caucus first.

      You are entitled to express your opinion. But you are NOT entitled to agreement.

        get that Reid is inimical to our interests (assuming "our" to mean "liberal" "the real Mainstream"). As to plenty of time, won't the voting for Senate Leader be in about 8-10 weeks?
