Lieberman To Zell Out?

Joe Lieberman, infamous for his willingness to appease the GOP, may have checked to see which way the winds are blowing and found that is time to cast his lot with the gang of idealogues, boobs and crooks that are currently in power:

Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) "respects the presidency and likes being wooed," the Hartford Courant reports, so "he's not ruling out a Bush Cabinet appointment."

"There's no opening the door a crack in Washington; you're in the game or you're not. And while there's no firm - or even flimsy - signal from the Bush team with regard to Lieberman, there is talk among the connected class in Washington that he could be in the mix for several positions."

Despite Lieberman's relatively liberal voting record, I would not be all that surprised if he joined the Bush Administration. Senator Lieberman's willingness to associate with the erudite neoconservative mouth breathers of the Committee on the Present Danger suggests that he can swallow just about anything.

But is it really an attempt to sell out or an attempt at unity? And would Bush's tapping of Lieberman be seen as an attempt at unifying a "divided country" by bringing a centrist democrat into his fold?

I am not defending Lieberman by any means (his ideas on censorship frighten me) , but what I mean to say is, isn't your rhetoric a bit counterproductive if what we are looking for is less division? Or maybe that isn't your motive at all, in which case, well, then it makes sense. Cannot argue with anyone who wishes not to associate themselves with the "mouth-breathers." I was merely confused.

I don't think their is anything in Bush's record to suggest that he is really interested in listening to Democrats for the purpose of national unity. Now that he is safely re-elected he has even less cause to do so now. If Lieberman or another Democrat (John Breaux, I am looking at you). The Administration marginalize Collin Powell or their more reality based associates in the Senate. The chances of a Democratic being treated even that well are pretty slim. Look how badly they are slapping around Specter.

Of course I would like there to be greater unity, peace, love and understanding, but there is not a shred of evidence to suggest that Bush is interested in these things (besides completely hollow "uniter, not a divider rhetoric). His idea of bipartisanship is Democratic acquisence to his destructive agenda. If Democratic politicians really care about the issues we say we care about then we have no choice to put up as much resistance as they can. I might before unity, but I am not for capitulation.

Listen here Mr Pomona Douchotomy or whatever your name is. I don't know who you think you are, but on this here web site, comments here have certain requirements. First of all, profanity is a must, or at least link your homepage to some kind of hardcore porn site, or even a made up one that involves Kyle's mom somehow. Don't know who Kyle's mom is? Too bad, he is an enemy of the people of the blog and limitless propaganda must be spread to taint his mother's name. So get with the decorum here or keep your lame ass comments to yourself.

Bob: for the record I am a woman.

Brian: I agree that Bush isn't particularly interested in unity. What I asked is, are you? You see, I am sick at heart of capitulation but it seems very much that that is going to be the natural course of the Party. And as such, then I wonder if there is any hope at all even for '08, on which I know many have pinned their hopes. In other words, will Lieberman become the Model Democrat? That is a scary scary thought. Just bringing that idea forth.

I ask what you think because you seem to know what you're talking about, even if your friend Bob speaks as if his mouth were a dirty toilet.
