Via Crooks and Liars:

A spokesman for Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., indicated Thursday that Lieberman may no longer be welcome.

“Lieberman went too far when he distorted Sen. Obama’s record,” said Reid spokesman Jim Manley. “From Reid’s perspective, (Lieberman) has every right to give a partisan speech to whomever he wants. But he doesn’t have the right to distort Sen. Obama’s record like that. Sen. Reid was very disappointed in Lieberman’s speech.”

Added Manley: “The Democratic caucus will likely revisit Lieberman’s situation after the November elections.”

Now when I wrote this post earlier in the week, many of you were quick to point out that Lieberman was needed because he caucuses with the Democrats in the Senate, but from where I sit, he hasn’t caucused on the things that matter, like SCOTUS nominees, or Iraq war Funding; or agitating for starting shyt with Iran.  Pay attention to this:

Asked if Reid was putting Lieberman on notice, Manley replied: “Without overplaying it, the answer is, yes.”

Does Harry Reid or his staffers read JJP?  I guess we’ll see if he follows through and makes good on the threat after November 4th, won’t we?
