This is why we don't invite you to parties anymore, Joe

This was kind of a shocking thing to see on CNN today: Joe Lieberman sounding like a stood-up prom date: "Lieberman, whose candidacy suffered enormously for his consistent defense of the war, said: 'If Howard Dean had his way, Saddam Hussein would still be in power today, not in prison, and the world would be a more dangerous place.' "

My god, Joe, you can't possibly actually believe that....that Dean would want Hussein in power? He sounds like a bitter person and increasingly a kind of crazy one. We argue over the means but not the ends when it comes to the toppling of tyrants.

I started out the end of the 2000 campaign with a tremendous respect for Lieberman, but Joe has managed to single-handedly whittle it down to a tiny stub the size of a used bar of hotel soap.

A shonda on you, Joe Lieberman.
