Let the Weasel Whine: Liveblogging Lieberman At the RNC

mccain_lieberman_hug4.thumbnail.jpgJoe then:

In an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” earlier this month, Mr. Lieberman indicated that he would attend the Republican Convention, but that he was not going there to “spend my time attacking Barack Obama.”

From Joe’s speech tonight:

When others wanted to retreat in defeat from the field of battle, when Barack Obama was voting to cut off funding for our troops on the ground, John McCain had the courage to stand against the tide of public opinion and support the surge and because of that, today, our troops are at last beginning to come home, not in failure, but in honor!

Joe also wants to know: "What, after all, is a Democrat like me doing at a Republican convention like this?"

Somebody needs to remind him that before John McCain took him on a premature honeymoon then threw him over like a cheap roundheels for Sarah Palin, we kicked his lying ass out of the Democratic Party.
