Sen. Joe Lieberman will keep his chairmanship of the Senate Homeland Security Committee despite hard feelings over his support for GOP nominee John McCain during the presidential campaign.Congratulations Democrats, you win big and you still find a way to fuck yourselves. In his typical classy form, Joe went out and immediately claimed it was all a big conspiracy against him and that he didn't really say all that stuff people were saying he said. He's innocent, you see. At least Joe got what he wanted: a platform to criticize the party from within the party and a committee seat which I'm sure he'll remember to use now that a Democrat is in office. I really must commend Harry Reid and PE Obama, Bre'r Lieberman told you he was going to stride off into the briar patch and you decided to save him from the danger. Now he gets to dick you around for 4 years because that's clearly been his modus operandi for the past 2 and he knew you didn't have the spine to treat him like he treated you. Try not to act too surprised when he leaves you hanging yet again..
The Connecticut independent will lose a minor panel post as punishment for criticizing Obama this fall.
Lieberman's colleagues in the Democratic caucus voted 42-13 Tuesday to approve a resolution condemning statements made by Lieberman during the campaign but allowing him to keep the Homeland Security Committee gavel. He will leave the Environment and Public Works panel, however.
