The Rude Pundit says it all about Joe LIEberman so much more eloquently than I can. But I'll say it anyway.
The bitch hasn't even begun moving to protect George W. Bush in any way he can. LIEberman proved himself a closet Republican years ago. He was the only one who didn't seem to know he is a shameless GOPer, and in last August's Democratic primary in Connecticut voters showed him the door. Yet still the blossoming Republican stayed in the race to remain U.S. Senator. And he won re-election, with the majority of votes coming from Republicans.
So now LIEberman is a phony "independent." He's caucusing with Democrats, so they keep control of the Senate, but only as long as it benefits him to do so. The moment his vote is needed, the very second Democrats need him to stand by his former party on something vitally important to the American people, and he will drop the last vestiges of pretense and officially join up with the GOP.
He's already moving to protect the Shrub from serious investigation, by abusing his chairmanship of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security to prevent investigations of the incompetency displayed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. And MSNBC's Keith Olbermann is reporting that the Republicans' favorite fellatio-provider is cozying up to presumptive 2008 presidential candidate John McCain.
If you needed any further proof of why Joe LIEberman is a piece of shit, you are probably too stupid not to be surprised when he stabs Democrats and the rest of America in the back again.
