Joe Lieberman Scrambling For Relevance

After his meeting with Senator Reid, during which Reid offered him a subcommittee chairmanship in return for stepping down as chair of Homeland Security Committee but remaining in the Democratic caucus, an offer Lieberman did not accept, Joe held a press conference:
Did you catch that "...those are the standards I will use in considering my options that I have before me..." line?
I agree with Jane:
We've watched for years as Joe called us traitors, lied his face off, stabbed Democrats in the back and did everything he could to keep Barack Obama out of the white house. Lieberman laundered smears that even McCain wasn't willing to launch himself.
Make no mistake about it -- Lieberman was openingly threatening the Democratic caucus in his press conference today. Enough is enough.
It's time for Joe to go:
Please sign the letter to the 19 Senators on the Senate Democratic Steering and Outreach Committee who determine committee chairs -- and ask them to relieve Joe Lieberman of his gavel before the start of the next Congress.
