The Democrat party proves once again that it has more in common with Mao than Jefferson. For thinking for himself and putting America first, he has been stripped of his power to cast a vote for the Democrat nominee at the DNC convention this year.
The Democratic National Committee stripped Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman ’64 LAW ’67 of his “superdelegate” status following his December endorsement of fellow senator John McCain of Arizona, a Republican, in this year’s presidential race. The move means that Lieberman — who has been persona non grata in the Democratic Party since losing renomination in the 2006 Democratic primary and subsequently winning re-election to the Senate as an independent — will be unable to cast a vote for the party’s nominee at the Democratic National Convention in August.
Democratic leaders at both the state and local levels said they are baffled at Lieberman’s decision to support a Republican but are unsurprised that the DNC has decided to deny him a vote at the convention.
Joe Lieberman is the coolest Dem since Zell Miller, but the party apparatus cannot stand it when its own dare to step off the liberal plantation. For supporting The United States in the global war on terror, he has become a pariah among his own.
Come on over to the big tent party, Joe. You’d be welcome in the Republican party, even with some of your more moderate stances. Join us. We’ll set you straight.
Update: Jomentum just may attend the Republican convention instead of the DemocRat convention. Ha ha, libs!
