      at long last, the great asshole is on board.  that's what obama was thanking.

      and you'll notice it's a paraphrase of lieberputz, of all people, and not even a direct quote.

      * sigh *

      The problem with people who need to follow leaders is that they need to follow leaders.

        even now.

        but the subtext here is what's huge.  Lieberman single-handed destroys the public option and then his own proposal to expand Medicare; makes the entire caucus look like a bunch of idiots; and then he gets a personal thank-you phone call from the president for... what?... all he's said is he thinks he's close to being able to say he supports the bill.  

        Meanwhile, Gibbs uses harsher rhetoric to shut down Dean than they whipped out for any of the teabaggers.
