Joe Lieberman Is a Weenie (Or Holy Shit! Is Obama the Same as Bush/McCain?)

I come down on the side of weenie:

Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman took another step Tuesday toward mending his relationship with Democrats, saying that Barack Obama‘s actions since winning the presidency have been “just about perfect.”

“Everything that President-elect Obama has done since election night has been just about perfect, both in terms of a tone and also in terms of the strength of the names that have either been announced or are being discussed to fill his administration,” Lieberman said during a visit to Hartford.

Lieberman, the Democratic nominee for vice president in 2000, was re-elected to the Senate in 2006 as an independent but continues to caucus with Democrats. He supported Republican John McCain‘s presidential campaign, going as far as to criticize Obama and make a speech at the Republican National Convention.

It seems that Joe is now bowing down to his new Democratic overlords, just as he did to his former GOP masters.

Joe likes to think that he’s all about political courage, but it seems that Joe is all about Joe and pleasing those in power.
