Holy Lieberman! Justice for Joe!

I'll let this one speak for itself and resist taking a nice slam at our Republican senator from CT - I'll take it!

With all thanks and appreciation to (click link to right if you're interested in reading what in my humble opinion, is one of the best blogs out there)

Next step...VOTE HIM OUT OF THE SENATE, CT...and yeah, I DID tell you so.

Lieberman Has “Superdelegate” Status Stripped Because of McCain Endorsement

Thanks to Zell Miller, there is a rule to deal with Joe Lieberman.

Lieberman's endorsement of Republican John McCain disqualifies him as a super-delegate to the Democratic National Convention under what is informally known as the Zell Miller rule, according to Democratic State Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo.

Miller, then a Democratic senator from Georgia, not only endorsed Republican George Bush four years ago, but he delivered a vitriolic attack on Democrat John Kerry at the Republican National Convention.

The Democrats responded with a rule disqualifying any Democrat who crosses the aisle from being a super delegate. Lieberman will not be replaced, DiNardo said.

And for those who said they'd never lift their glass in a toast to Zell Miller...cheers!
