America’s Biggest Loser

“Now that the election is over, it is time to put partisan considerations aside and come together as a nation to solve the difficult challenges we face and make our blessed land stronger and safer,” Joe Lieberman says now. “Too little, too late,” I say. He aligned himself with people who were outright lying about the man who is now the president-elect and now he expects the party to just look the other way? At an event with Mr. McCain in Pennsylvania in August, Lieberman said the race was “between one candidate, John McCain, who has always put the country first, worked across party lines to get things done, and one candidate who has not.” If he were just another Republican lining up behind the party, it would not seem so slimy. But he was the Democratic Party’s vice-presidential nominee just eight years ago and this election he went eagerly over to the dark side. Now he wants to come back just like that? Yes, Obama is all for bipartisanship and inclusion, but if Lieberman were actually the Republican he been playing over the last several months, he would not be in the same position. The Democrats are considering taking the chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee away from him. And he says that is “unacceptable.” The Democrats are in no way obliged to give him anything since he is an Independent. But he seems to think he is the key to everything and is negotiating with the Republicans to leverage his position. Part of me would like to see him hung out to dry and the other part is with Obama on getting beyond this childishness in politics. I just hope he sees what a loser he is, though I suspect his ego is so big he is incapable of seeing himself in the reality of this situation. Loser.
