What a shock, a bipartisan coalition of the self-blessed acts out against the rest of gluttonous America and their piggish desire to live at a decent standard of living.

Come Saturday Morning: The Curious Incident of the Republicans in the Night-Time

By: Saturday January 2, 2010 6:54 am

None of Lieberman’s Republican buddies, on or off Capitol Hill, are backing Dennis Kucinich’s probe of Rahm Emanuel. These are the people that went ahead with impeaching Bill Clinton for trying to hide a few blow jobs that were none of their business, yet they won’t go after Obama’s right-hand man? How– curious. Why, you’d think that the Republicans liked seeing Rahm stay right where he is.

Cloture Is Now Officially Meaningless

By: Saturday December 26, 2009 5:25 pm

Here are two pairs of numbers which look awfully similar. The cloture vote for the Senate health care bill: 60-39. The vote for final passage of the Senate health care bill: 60-39. Thanks to Democratic caucus members like Joe Lieberman, Ben Nelson, Blanche Lincoln and Mary Landrieu, the distinction between cloture and the bill itself has disappeared.

In yet another surprising Rahm-is-wonderful NYT paean, we learn that sexy Peter Orzsag was sent to dine with Maine Senator Susan Collins, and that West Virginia’s Jay Rockefeller got an Oval Office sit-down with President Obama. Maria Cantwell of Washington was also summoned to the Oval for a one-on-one with the President. The head of the White House Office of Health Reform, Nancy DeParle, even visited Dianne Feinstein in her storied DeeCee den, the place where Barack and Hillary made their peace last summer. But what of Holy Joe?

Joe Lieberman a Stimulus Hero? Not Likely

By: Saturday February 14, 2009 7:59 am

Lieberman’s numbers in Connecticut are in the tank.   In a head-to-head race Dick Blumenthal would beat him 58% to 30%.  His approval rating with Democrats in his own state is 21/70 — he has to get with the program or face an electoral wipeout in 2012.  The Ryan Grim article Klein links to says he only came in  at the end of the negotiations, in time to take credit and get his face before the camera. 

That’s the Lieberman you can count on.
