LIEberman to Attend GOP Convention

Shades of Zell Miller!
Joe LIE-berman is going to attend the Republican National convention this summer, as one of Yawn McSame's policy advisors.
(From the Stamford Advocate:)Lieberman, who calls himself an independent Democrat, still caucuses with Senate Democrats who need him to maintain a 51-49 majority.

Friday, Lieberman said he will attend the Republican National Convention this summer, "if Senator McCain thinks it will be helpful to be there in some capacity."

Lieberman is co-chairman of McCain's campaign in Connecticut with U.S. Rep. Christopher Shays, R-Bridgeport.

"I am not going to attend the Democratic Convention for obvious reasons," Lieberman said.
Lieberman had his superdelegate status stripped earlier this year, and his 'obvious reasons' for not attending the Democratic convention would probably include things like, oh, I don't know ... being flayed alive maybe?

He must have seen George W. Bush win Kvatch's coveted Asshole of the Week Award on Saturday and thought to himself, "Gee - I want one of those." Giving an athletic 110% to the effort, he also gave indications that he would support Shays, his co-chair in McCain's campaign.
Asked whether he will cross party lines again during the fall Congressional election to support Shays over his Democratic challenger, Jim Himes of Greenwich, Lieberman hinted he would once again sway toward the GOP.

"I am going to wait and see, but let me just say Chris Shays is a great congressman."
After all, there are a lot of assholes out there, and if you want to win you have to give it that extra effort.
Lieberman's support for the U.S. senator from Arizona has been the last straw for many Democrats in the state reeling from his successful independent run against Ned Lamont, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, in 2006. His critics say the Stamford resident has abandoned the Democratic Party and say he remains a member in name only.
They couldn't have figured that out before the election? We here at Les Enragé had Lieberman's entire career pegged as a false flag operation even before he was challenged by Ned Lamont, a REAL Democrat. If they could have figured it out it would have saved us all a lot of trouble. Six years worth to be exact.

Hat-tip to Think Progress for the story.
