And it couldn’t happen to a more deserving weasel.  Via Washington Monthly (hat tip, AmericaBlog):

LIEBERMAN HASN’T BEEN PAYING ATTENTION TO HIMSELF…. Joe Lieberman adopted the role of Republican attack dog early on, but as the election draws near, he’s hoping the political world has a very short memory.

Lieberman, a self-proclaimed “independent Democrat” who was chosen by McCain to make the case against Obama at the Republican National Convention in early September, said his comments have been within bounds.

“When I go out, I say, ‘I have a lot of respect for Sen. Obama. He’s bright. He’s eloquent.'”

My hunch is, Lieberman sees the direction of the political winds, and hopes to convince Democrats that while he’s been a McCain sycophant, he’s always been “respectful” towards Obama.

Lieberman, in other words, has to hope Democrats haven’t been paying any attention at all. The party is supposed to forget, for example, when Lieberman argued that Obama doesn’t put “country first.”

And the time Lieberman said it was a “good question” to ask whether Obama is a “Marxist.”

And the time Lieberman ironically accused the Obama campaign of “sleazy tactics.”

And the time Lieberman, at the Republican National Convention, falsely accused Obama of trying to undermine the troops

“Respectful”? Nice try, Joe.

Sorry, Senator Droopy Dog, my memory is as good as Memorex Cassette Tapes.  I’m remembering all the shyt you said about Senator Obama, and the entire Democratic Party to no end, especially when you thought Senator Country Last was going to pick you as his running mate, or give you a Cabinet position.  Looks like those prospects have evaporated like water in the Mojave Desert these days.

I’m also remembering the following shyt you said about Senator Obama:

And this is especially true, of course, because we are a nation at war. We need a president we can count on to fight for what’s right for our country not only when it’s easy, but when it’s hard. And I was there, so I can tell you, when others were silent about the war in Iraq, John McCain had the guts and the judgment to sound the alarm about the mistakes we were making in Iraq. (Applause.) You know, when others wanted to retreat in defeat from the field of battle, which would have been a disaster for the USA; when colleagues like Barack Obama were voting to cut off funding for our American troops on the battlefield — (boos) — John McCain had the courage to stand against the tide of public opinion, advocate the sure, support the surge.

But, now that the shoe is on the other foot, you want back into the Democratic Party, and hope that Majority Leader Harry Reid will forget how you showed your ass as an exalted Guest Speaker at the Republican National Convention this summer.

You see the writing on the wall and you want to come in out of the cold.  You think the Democrats are supposed to forgive you for how you held their ass hostage to force the confirmations on the Supreme Court that turned it rightward; that you voted to continue funding the worst conflict since Vietnam; that you always threatened to vote with the Republicans if Harry Reid didn’t tap dance the way you wanted, and you flaunted and thumbed your nose at your Democratic colleagues to score points with the Republicans every chance you got.

You thought it wouldn’t come back to bite you in the ass.  You thought WRONG.

And now, you are officially a Man Without A Party.  The Democrats don’t need you, and the Republicans no longer have any use for you, considering they’re going to be mighty busy trying to salvage what’s left of their party after the dust clears on November 4th.  Regardless of whether or not Senator Obama wins, you still will have to deal with an increased majority in the Senate, which means Harry Reid can finally strip your ass of your committee assignments, and turn you into the enunch that you always have been.
