Every time I see a picture or video of this guy, I instantly think “slimeball”. I think the Democratic caucus should kick him out. He campaigned for John McCain and attacked Obama. This guy couldn’t get the Democratic nomination for his senate seat so he went Independent. Yes, he’s traditionally voted with Democrats but this guy can’t be trusted or relied upon by the Democratic party. The Democrats should not get greedy and try to expand their Senate power. We don’t have the 60-seat filibuster-proof majority but we’ve gained 6 seats. The Democrats do not need Joe Lieberman. I bet Joe was pretty damn disappointed when McCain didn’t make him his running mate. When McCain’s numbers were sliding, the guy even started praising Obama. What a damn sycophant!
He makes a very well articulated statement on why he supports Barack Obama as opposed to John McCain.

Can the Democrats stop being such wussies and actually get something done? They need to stop issuing subpoenas that get ignored or threatening contempt charges and instead actually take action! When is anyone going to take this administration to task and impeach Bush and Co. for their numerous crimes and transgressions? Democrats like to talk the talk but then they go and expand Bush’s illegal surveillance power. Pelosi is a god damn joke. Impeachment is off the table? What the hell is wrong with you woman? Great way to show everyone you’re really in the administration’s pocket, you sock puppet.
So it seems almost certain now that in addition to winning a majority in the House and turning over several governorships, the Democrats have also won a majority in the Senate. More specifically, there are 49 Democrats and 2 independents who’ve said they’d vote with Democrats.
