…he’s pleasing his corporate masters.

The ex-Democrat now says hell join the GOP in a health-care filibuster. Paul Begala on Liebermans latest and most shameless betrayal.

It’s journalistic shorthand to note a politician’s party identification and state after his or her name. For example: Jane Doe (D-NY). And so Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman is identified as (I-CT). But the I does not stand for “Independent.” It stands for “Insurance Industry.”

Now I don’t think that a politician should vote along party lines all the time. A politician should represent his/her constituency. Having said that. Joe Lieberman has taken that to new extremes by not only consistently voting against his party, but actively working against them. Now that kind of two-faced-ness might actually represent the thinking of some of his constituency, but one would wonder why the party puts up with it.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
