Will Lieberman Defect?

If the Democrats find a way to block more troops for Baghdad, it could be a time bomb to blow away their control of the Senate.

The fuse would be Joe Lieberman, who is busy being more bipartisan-than-thou: this week co-signing with Lindsey Graham a letter to the President urging the surge, last month setting up a two-party Iraq study group with Republican Susan Collins and, in between, eulogizing Gerald Ford for bipartisanship as “a way to govern.”

It is no stretch to imagine the boundlessly self-righteous Lieberman voting to give back the Senate to Republicans “for the good of the country.”

Another prime-time smooch with President Bush would be just the ticket for a politician immune to irony.

Isn't it time for someone to check Connecticut laws for recalling a Senator?
