Democrats let Joe Lieberman keep his chairmanship.
The netroots are already apoplectic.
In a post titled, “Suck On That, Liberals,” Jane Hamsher writes:
Cillizza: “Asked what it would mean if Lieberman kept his chairmanship, one Senate Democratic aide said bluntly: “The left has been foiled again. They can rant and rage but they still do not put the fear into folks to actually change their votes. Their influence would be in question.”
I hope this puts to rest the notion that this is all some master stroke of kumbayah, of keeping your friends close and your enemies closer.
This is about telling you that you mean nothing. That democracy is a nice word, but it should never threaten the entitlement of the most exclusive club in the world.
No matter what Joe Lieberman does, the people who are protecting him hate you much more than they hate him.
There’s that. But there’s also disdain for the American electorate that voted in overwhelming numbers for change from the discredited Bush/McCain/Lieberman policies. But in a city known for tone-deafness, there clearly isn’t a more tone-deaf group than the Senate Dems.
I’m done with Reid as Senate leader.
Meanwhile, as I write, a poll of DailyKos readers finds that 85 percent do not approve of Harry Reid as majority leader, compared with 8 percent who approve.
Always angry, even in victory.
