Joe Lieberman gets to keep his DHS Committee chairmanship
. This is not particularly surprising, especially with Spineless Harry Reid leading Senate Dems these days, but it is awfully disappointing. Like many of you, I'm sure, I sent emails and such to my Senators urging them to strip Joe of his chair position for the vile things he said and did while campaigning for his buddy McCain. Bad enough that this so-called "Independent Democrat" was actively campaigning for the Republican, but the attacks he made on Obama went way beyond the pale.
The only bright spot is that the people of Connecticut seem to be fed up with the little weasel, and this will surely be his last term in office as their Senator. Unfortunately, he's still got four more years there to fuck things up for everybody.
