Joe "160 Lb Sleeping Pill" Lieberman filibustering. He's threatening to do it to the health care bill with the public option.
Independent my ass.
Yeah, that whole thing last year where he spent the entire campaign with McCain might have been a clue that he's really not with the Democrats.
Just sayin' that might've been an indicator.

Politics is a game, a game of strategy, and deals and all kinds of things you and I don't want or understand.
We the people judge congress by the standards we thought they were supposed to stand for. We know they are "politicians" (i.e. they don't work like the rest of us for a living, but were enticed either with idealogical goals, or cynically want raw power) and we still act as if they aren't.
i can't even fathom why Lieberman is still considered in ANY way a democrat. I am sure I am missing some fine "gamesmanship" point, but he has chosen by his actions and his vote to be hard right, not a democrat at all. Is there some percieved advantage in the game by pretending he holds dear ANY of the democratic principles? He clearly doesn't. He seems to me to be harder right than many conservative republicans.
So what is the win here? If you have a democrat that is a wolf in sheeps clothing, what is the advantage? That he is registered as democrat? So what?
I don't get it...
