DOOR, MEET LIEBERMAN

Sen. Joe Lieberman likes to style himself a maverick, a la John McCain, as opposed to a kook who has wandered off the reservation, a la Zell Miller. But Lieberman is clearly closer to Uncle Zell's cabin o' thought, especially after his answer to a weekend questioner in Windsor, Conn.

Liberal Dems in Connecticut think Lieberman's too Bush-like to deserve another six-year term in office. Lieberman has now decided to fight back -- by insinuating that he'd leave the party if there's a primary challenge.

Let's go to the poor-quality audio file for proof:
QUESTION: ... Zell Miller once stated that he would always be a member of the Democratic party. Can you make similar promises?

LIEBERMAN: Will I always be a member of the Democratic party? I hope there's not a primary. I'm confident if there is one, I'll win it, but I'm not gonna rule out any other option for now because I feel so strongly that I can do better for the State of Connecticut for the next six years in the United States Senate that I want to give all the voters a chance to make that decision on Election Day in November. I want to do it as a Democrat. If I didn't want to do it as a Democrat, I would choose to run in some other party, trust me. But I want to do it as a Democrat because I believe in the Democratic party, so really the choice is up to my fellow Democrats ...
Run, Joe, run!

Hey, if Repubs can be liberal, why can't Dems be non-liberal?

What liberal Republicans? Where?

We should send the entire Democratic machinery t-shirts that say "I'm a Republican, too."

Olympia Snowe... McCain, for co-authoring that horrid, anti-American "Incumbent Politician Protection and First Amendment Evisceration" Act...

There's probably a few more, but I wouldn't vote for them, even if I could, in any case.

I am, however, enjoying the dog'n'pony/bread and circuses RepubliDem Smackdown fights. Keep pissin' off the electorate, more of them will vote Libertarian, Constitution, Green... good for America.
