Lieberman Says Filibuster is On the Table

101px-Joe_Lieberman_official_portrait_2.jpgFearful that grassroots groups like MoveOn and DKos are organizing to oppose him in the upcoming election, Joe Lieberman has been feeling the heat. He’s been meeting with the DFA hoping to keep them out of it, and Bill Scher now says that according to DFA reps he is claiming that "filibuster is definitely on the table."

If Lieberman is serious this could go a long way toward molifying liberal anger at him for his cuddly ways with BushCo. And if he’s just yanking everybody’s chain that is a really ill-advised move at this point. Hopefully we will hear more on this soon.
