Lieberman Makes Rightwing Happy

With his announcement of an independent run, the Freepers are all happy:

Don't know if he can pull it off but this move helps whichever GOPer is in the race

Republicans! Start your engines!

Lieberman will now run as an independent with about 50% of the Dem vote, and the rest we can supply him. Lieberman wins as an independent, and the Dems lose another vote in the Senate. This *could* mean that we get the nuclear option.

This is great, now, here comes the fun part. What are the 27 Rat candidates for POTUS going to do?

Go Joe... Screw the Dems and win one for the good guys.

If Lieberman was serious in his statements of caring about progressive values, he would look at who is cheering for him-- and drop out of the race. It's a sad spiral for Lieberman to go from Democratic nominee for the Vice-Presidency to betraying his party on a bitter ego trip.
