The ventriloquist

Is it just me, or is the relationship between John McCain and Creepy Joe™ Lieberman analogous to Charlie McCarthy and Edgar Bergen, Jerry Mahoney and Paul Winchell and Johnny and Senor Wences?

Just look at the positioning. Lieberman is always just behind McCain as McCain speaks - classic ventriloquist stature, and I swear I can see Lieberman's lips move when McCain speaks.

And it's got to be a comedy routine. McCain says al Quaida forces are being trained in Iran, and Lieberman corrects him. McCain says Purim is the Jewish Halloween, and Lieberman corrects him.

S'all right? S'all right.
