Lieberman wins Mark Pryor's Support

Mark Pryor announced that he will support Sen. Lieberman's re-election campaign regardless of the outcome of the primary. His spokesman:

"Mark and Joe Lieberman are personal friends, and [Lieberman] has been a trusted mentor. They both served on Senate Armed Services Committee together and [Pryor] told me he will be supporting him no matter what the outcome."

Watch the Lieberhaters go and claim that this is part of some Washington "incumbent protection racket" of Senators "clinging to power," continuing to ignore the possibility that people in D.C. might actually be supporting Lieberman because they like and agree with him

But of course, most Lieberhaters are too narrowminded to think that any loyal Democrat could support Lieberman unless they have an ulterior motive, despite explicit evidence to the contrary. It's quite sad, really.

It's not that Lieberman has a bad voting record, it's that he goes on tv and sounds like a moderate Republican supporting the Bush administration. Also, his vote for cloture on Alito made extra enemies, including me. That said, money and effort should be made to switch 7 Senate seats to the Dem side of the aisle.

My punishment to Joe would be to deny him seniority on committees. The other side does/threatens this effectively, and that's one tool we should adopt/adapt. The tent can be large, but can't have sharp objects sticking out.
