The Democrat Majority are bunch of wimps. They control everything. They own the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives. But since it seems that Republican Senator Norm Coleman may win a re-election recount and Senator Saxby Chambliss is favored to win a Georgia run-off, the Democrat Majority is scared that if they lose Lieberman, he would caucusing with the Republicans. Besides, if by chance the Democrats get that super Majority, they don't want to lose Lieberman and the moderate Democrats who sides with him.
In order to save face, the Senate Democrats are stressing that they need a pro-McCain Joe Lieberman in the caucus to have any chance at a super majority. So instead of punishing Lieberman, the Democrat caucus voted to give the former Democratic VP candidate a wrist slap for continually attacking Obama during the campaign season.
From The AP:
"Sen. Joe Lieberman will keep his chairmanship of the Senate Homeland Security Committee despite hard feelings over his support for GOP nominee John McCain during the presidential campaign.
The Connecticut independent will lose a minor panel post as punishment for criticizing Obama this fall.
Lieberman's colleagues in the Democratic caucus voted 42-13 Tuesday to approve a resolution condemning statements made by Lieberman during the campaign but allowing him to keep the Homeland Security Committee gavel. He will leave the Environment and Public Works panel, however."
What a bunch of wimps.
Look for the tirade of screams from the nutroots to begin
