Joe may be OK with his fellow senators, but not with his constituents.

Snake in the grass, Joe Lieberman, might have escaped censure from the Democratic party for his disgraceful conduct during the election but it appears that his own constituents are not quite as forgiving.

According to a recent poll:

Lieberman, who faced a possible formal rebuke tonight by the Democratic State Central Committee over his support of Republican John McCain, had the approval of 38 percent and the disapproval of 54 percent of voters.

The rating was the worst of any senator in a Quinnipiac poll since
Robert Torricelli of New Jersey was forced to resign in 2002.
So, Lieberman might be able to sneak away with only a slight punishment from the Democrats, but the people who voted him into office might yet exact their revenge on the man who promised to side with the Democrats and found himself standing on a Republican platform and, on several other occasions, attacking the Democratic candidate.

I really hope they kick this traitor out of office.

Hat tip to Crooks and Liars.
