If Joe Lieberman wins his Senate race in
November (he’s ahead in the polls), the Dems in the Senate are thinking
of stripping him of his seniority. While that is a truly despicable
thing to do to a man who was your VP candidate, this is really what
“At this point Lieberman cannot expect to just keep
his seniority,” said the aide. “He can’t run against a Democrat and
expect to waltz back to the caucus with the same seniority as before.
It would give the view that the Senate is a country club rather than
representative of a political party and political movement.”
Whaaaa??? The Senate is representative of a political party and a political movement?
And here I taught the children in civics class that Senators
represented the people and the state who elected them. Maybe this
hair-brained notion is what’s wrong with the Senate. Every Senator who
truly believes this, raise your hand, so we can vote you out.
