Lieberman has *always* sucked

…which is why I find it strange that the backlash against him has just recently made headway. Or at least, the backlash against the backlash has recently made headway. And headlines.

I’m not from Connecticut and I’m not a registered Democrat, so my views on the matter are largely irrelevant, but let me try to spell it out for those who keep trying to simplify things: it’s not just the war. It’s that, like the President, he wants to increase funding in almost every level of government while somehow decreasing tax rates. It’s that, like the President, his support of the first amendment is shaky at best. It’s that he positions himself as an independent, innovative reformer, but doesn’t seem to have any original thoughts on the really difficult problems. It’s that he comes across like someone’s well-meaning dad at a PTA meeting who doesn’t appear to know what’s really going on.

I don’t know if this Ned Lamont fellow will be any better, but I won’t be sad to see Lieberman go.

    It’s that he’s an experienced politician, and hasn’t done anything to overcome that negative.
