Surprise. Senate republicans to welcome Creepy Joe™ with open arms
Let's see. He's spent six months bashing Barack Obama. He's spoken at their convention. He's embraced a novice vice-presidential candidate as if she were legitimate. He's pummeled his Democratic colleagues. He's led cheers for unending war.
So is it really news when the Senate Republicans declare that they'd love Lieberman to caucus with them?
It's easy to see Lieberman playing out the remainder of his Senate career (certainly no one can imagine that he'd be able to run in Connecticut in 2012), following his most base and comfortable instincts as a conservative, divisive, war hawk in the Republican nest.
