Pro-Iraq War Lieberman supports Pro-Iraq War Collins for Senate

From MSNBC’s First Read:

Does This Surprise Anyone? National Journal’s CongressDaily reports that Joe Lieberman (I) is backing Sen. Susan Collins’ (R) re-election bid no matter the Democratic nominee — even though Democrats are targeting her seat. “I would just feel that I was not being honest to myself and everything I’ve said about what our politics should be like now if, for partisan reasons, I didn’t support somebody who I think is a great senator,” he says. Does McCain become Lieberman’s second GOP endorsement in ‘08, if he wins the Republican nomination?

A great Senator? Susan Collins and Joe Lieberman have been complete and total failures at providing government oversight. They were — and are — the ranking Republican and Democrat on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee that has done NOTHING to hold the Bush administration accountable for Iraq or Katrina or any other issue really.

Lieberman and Collins had the opportunity to rein Bush in — and they didn’t. They won’t. They support Bush. They support his war in Iraq. No wonder Joe Lieberman thinks Collins is a great Senator. She’s just like him.

In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire.

Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
