Joe Lieberman enodorses......
.......[insert drum roll here].....Susan Collins for U.S. Senate! He caucuses with the Democrats and had himself elected on a "Connecticut for Lieberman (Independent Democratic - CN)" ticket. So, no matter who the Democratic nominee is, he's endorsing Collins. Not hard to figure out why as we find out from Joe Sudbay via Americablog: "They were -- and are -- the ranking Republican and Democrat on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee that has done NOTHING to hold the Bush administration accountable for Iraq or Katrina or any other issue really."
As each day goes by and with each appearance on FOXNews it becomes more clear why in early 2003 Al Gore did not bother to phone Lieberman and inform him he was not running again. I'm still waiting for 2008 when the Democrats pick up a couple of additional seats and Harry Reid can relegate Lieberman to trash collector.
