Lieberman snubs nose at vets

I missed a story two days back, that Harry Reid had offered Joe Lieberman the chair of the Veteran’s Affairs Committee. Lieberman said no, it wasn’t good enough. Let me reiterate: Joe Lieberman, the Iraq war’s biggest friend, thinks helping vets isn’t a good enough job for someone as important as him. Nice.

But more importantly, why is Harry Reid offering Traitor Joe another committee chair? When you chair a committee it gives you access to a bigger budget and more staff with which to hold hearings and embarrass the administration. Joe Lieberman basically called President-elect Obama un-American. Why are we offering him anything?
