Reid his lips

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on Thursday that Democratic-turned-independent Sen. Joe Liebreman may be stripped of a key committee chairmanship in the Senate because Lieberman publicly supported Republican John McCain's candidacy for president. (Perhaps Reid reads my blog; see "A few memorable days," two items down.)

While you're at it, Harry, kick the turncoat out of the Senate Democratic caucus, too. With a razor-thin Democratic majority the last two years, you needed him in order to keep control of the body. Now, with Democrats having picked up at least five seats in Tuesday's election, the party's majority is safe and Lieberman is no longer needed.

Show him the door. And slam it behind him.
