Too little, too late, Traitor Joe

With the election looming and his atrocious behavior about to come back and bite him in the ass, Joe Lieberman is trying to throw some cash at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in an effort to retain his gavel as chair of the Homeland Security committee. To that end, he has written two $100,000 checks to the DSCC in the last year.

We have no doubt that Chuck Schumer appreciates the recent outpouring of largess, but something tells me that it is going to take more than a hundred grand to get out of the doghouse with most Senate Democrats. He is most likely going to be the keynote speaker at the republican nominating convention, for Christ's sake, and he has been filling the role of attack-dog for months, and people have been paying attention to his warmongering rhetoric. We were paying attention a couple of months ago when Obama pulled him aside and called his ass out.

When Harry Reid was asked about Lieberman's chances of retaining his gavel after January he basically told the reporter asking the question to wait and see what next year brings, and moved on.

Joe should have maybe put down the shovel and stopped digging a long time ago. Whatever he does now is going to be too little, too late. Hell yes, he should be stripped of his chairmanship, and he should be kicked out of the Democratic caucus. I am even willing to take it a step farther. I am in favor of censuring him publicly from the well of the senate and in full view of all stripping him of every perk and trapping of the senate. You chose to be a man without a party, Traitor Joe. Lie down and sleep in the bed you have made, asshole.
