"blah blah I didn't do anything wrong, charging $ for government positions is no big deal!"
Looks like we might have found Ted Stevens a cellmate!
Hey, at least we finally got rid of Mr. $90k-in-the-freezer. Thank you for that one, Louisiana GOP!
Poor ol' Joe, once again, finds himself in trouble for bashing Democrats.... only to find Democrats victorious in the end.
This time, he says, if they take away his Chairmanship ... he'll bolt the party and join the Republicans!
OH GOD NO, SAY IT AIN'T SO JOE!
Does anyone really think Lieberman would rather bolt to the minority party, rather than accept Chairmanship of another committee or subcommittee? It isn't like the minority can offer him any kind of chairmanship at all. Plus, he would be sealing his electoral defeat in 2012 to the next Democratic nominee - and wouldn't exactly fit in with the socially conservative Republican caucus very well. They aren't exactly tolerant of, well, anyone else.
"Elections have consequences", I think, is what the GOP used to say in 2004 to any Democratic objections...
Senate Democrats vote for Lieberman to keep his committee chairmanship. This should've been obvious given their track record. I keep forgetting that Senate Democrats don't have spines.

In a time of crisis, at least we can all come together and bash atheists!
Hey, I've got some more for you: there are no bailouts for families that lost their homes in your $1,000,000,000,000.00 bailout for international corporations who engaged in predatory lending. There is precedence for moral hazard in the newly planned economy. There is no free in your market, nor principles in your philosophy of governance.
