Screwed how? He lost the primary to another candidate. You call it "screwed", we call it "democracy". He then decided his personal importance rose above that of his political party.

Actually I think it is called dropping their support for Joe Liberman, I don't know about you but I leave with the partner I took to the dance. I think the DEMS better up the ante in Joe's tin cup or he is going to show them his version of "democracy"

No, he stood up for what he knew would get him elected.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I think that's called a dictatorship. We reserve the right to throw the bums out in America.

We all know how disappointed I am in this election. Hey, did you hear about my new congressman? You know, the one who just ran Tom Delay's ass out of Texas?
