Lieberman does 180 degrees (0.00 / 0)
and back again faster than a whirling dervish.

Heckuva job, Scarc-ie! (0.00 / 0)
You're doing one heckuva job.

Wow. (0.00 / 0)
It just gets more and more damning for Lieberman and his inability to accept any accountability for his failure of leadership and his abdication of oversight responsibility.

Great catch as usual, Scarce.  You're on fire today.

N-i-c-e (4.00 / 1)
Lieberman: "Needless to say, the replacement for Michael Brown will receive quite a hearing."

CNN: "But about an hour before Lieberman made that very promise, his Homeland Security committee was considering 4 other nominees, including one who will be crafting labor policy for the Homeland Security department. Most lawmakers only had staff at the hearings; most Senators, including Lieberman himself, were absent."

Lieberman and Labor (0.00 / 0)
This is not just another example of Lieberman's failure of oversight authority for Homeland Security, but also another example of him failing on labor issues.

Well, NOW he's gonna give it to 'em. (0.00 / 0)
I mean, he'd have to be either a complete tool, or an imbecile, or both, to make that statement and then not show up at the hearing! Right?

According to Kos, Reid has lent Ned Stephanie Cutter (0.00 / 0)
CT-Sen: Top Reid consultant also working for Lamont

Do a quick Google search on her, and things do not look very good -
Kos previously called her a "moron to the 9th degree":

Newsweek's analysis - not very good:

Cutter had been the object of endless complaining by reporters and campaign staffers. She was considered too slow and too controlling, not nimble or clever. Tired of watching her berate interns and alienate reporters with vituperative e-mails after the most mildly critical stories, Kerry staffers snidely made a verb of her e-mail name (scutter@johnkerry.com). "To Scutter" meant to try to control or dominate. Its second meaning was cruder, "to f--- something up." In March reporters had begun to vent about Cutter to campaign manager Mary Beth Cahill. By May they were taking their grievances to Kerry himself. In July Kerry said to Cahill, "I'm tired of hearing complaints about Stephanie. Fix it."

Well, go see for yourself. A very depressing Google search:
