IndependentÂ of his constituents.
His party is afterall, Connecticut for Lieberman not Lieberman for Connecticut (64% of Connecticut wants the public option).
Stephen Colbert’s take on Mavericky Lieberman is below.
Today we find out that Joe Lieberman wants more attention, saying he will support a filibuster.
I’m glad that Harry Reid doesn’t seem worried, but I really don’t like Lieberman.
In fact, he may be my least favorite democrat of all time.
Yup, I’m certain of it.
Huffington Post has a ranking of Lieberman’s 15 worst moments.
Any single one is a doozy, but 15 makes a horrible career.
History won’t be kind.
In the short term though, Joe will get a lot more attention I’m sure.
I’ll take a republican or anyone else over another term with Lieberman.
Vote him out.
Media Matters has collected the reporting on Joe’s traitorous declaration, with only a couple media outlets correcting Joe’s lies about health care.

Is everything in that lying —hole’s hands?
UPDATE: Â ApparentlyÂ reconciliationÂ is still on this table, in which case I hope our legislators put in a strong option. Â Most of America feels the same (according to recent polls).
