Tuesday Morning Open Thread




Good morning.

Today, the Senate Democrats meet for the first time since the election. On their agenda is the Lieberman situation. Seems like Joe has learned well from his Republican colleagues. He’s trashed the president-elect and worked against Democratic Senate candidates. For that, he’ll be rewarded. He’s called the Democrats bluff. This is, of course, instructive for the small GOP caucus. They now know that the Democrats in the Senate are all talk, no action. Not a good signal to send. But, that’s what Democrats do. They cave. Pathetic.

What’s Joe Lieberman doing to help Al Franken in the recount? Lieberman helped Coleman during the election. What’s Joe Lieberman doing to help Jim Martin in the Georgia runoff?

It’s just irritating.

Let’s get started….


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. 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.
