      The liberal blogosphere has been demanding Lieberman's scalp ever since 2006 when they helped fuel Ned Lamont's upset victory over the incumbent in the Democratic primary -- only to watch Lieberman run and win as an independent in the general election.

      On the eve of the vote, the netroots were a-blaze with anti-Lieberman rhetoric.

      "Joe Lieberman has made clear he thinks Barack Obama is a socialist who is a danger to the United States as president," wrote David Sirota on Open Left.

      Wrote Markos Moulitsas (a.k.a. "Kos") on his eponymous site:

      "The only thing that matters, the only thing that Lieberman wants, and the only thing we don't want him to have -- is the chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee. If this is the 'starting point', and given the Senate Democrats' history of capitulations, expect Lieberman to come out of that meeting as majority leader."

      As a member of the netroots community I completely agree with Bernie Sanders where Lieberman is concerned.  He is an insult the vast majority of those of us who support Barack Obama.  Lieberman served as a vicious attack dog while campaigning for McCain.  He deserves to be stripped of his committee chairmanships.  Joe needs to know this is not about Joe.  It is about us, the American people and majority Party of Democrats.
