Lieberman Still Thinks He's A Democrat

Joe Lieberman at the convention last night: "And that brings me directly to why I am here tonight. What, after all, is a Democrat like me doing at a Republican convention like this?"

Selling out the people who originally put him in office? Going to the highest bidder? Looking for new ways to fuck the country?

Lieberman answers his own question: "The answer is simple. I'm here to support John McCain because country matters more than party. I'm here tonight because John McCain is the best choice to bring our country together and lead our country forward. I'm here because John McCain's whole life testifies to a great truth: being a Democrat or a Republican is important. But it is not more important than being an American.

Both presidential candidates this year talk about changing the culture of Washington, about breaking through the partisan gridlock and special interests that are poisoning our politics. But only one of them has actually done it. Only one leader has shown the courage and the capability to rise above the smallness of our politics to get big things done for our country and our people. And that leader is John McCain!"
