Too late Joe

Joe Lieberman tries desperately to maintain his slithering hold on his imaginary, co-dependent, bipartisan line, but he's slipping. He admits that Palin wouldn't be ready on day one to step into the presidency. He also takes the opportunity to flick his forked tongue in the direction of the Democrats, assuring us he will work across the aisle for an Obama administration. I liked Kate Phillips' response to that:
While that may be his intent, Mr. Lieberman’s full-throated endorsement of Mr. McCain, his criticisms of the Democratic leadership on the war in Iraq and his extraordinary speech at the Republican National Convention have all but guaranteed that he may be frozen out of a walk-across-the-aisle kinda thing in the next session. Especially since the aisle seems to be tipped more favorably toward a heavier lineup of Democratic desks in the chamber.
Joe also claims that Palin would eventually be ready to step in should something happen to McCain, saying she's smart and a quick study. That's true to some extent. Palin, although she's clearly inarticulate in her interviews, is not stupid. She is smart and learns quickly. The problem is, that she uses her intellect solely to further her ambitions rather than further her knowledge of the world.

Lieberman really is the one still tied to ticket even though his name isn't on it. If McCain loses, Lieberman may be done for politically. Instead of looking bipartisan, he looks like Benedict Arnold.

He's looked like Benedict Arnold to me long before the race even started. That bipartisan fakery has been part of his schtick for years. I hope the good people of CT remember this when he's up for reelection again.

Not stupid? I'd love to run her through an IQ test and if she's outside of the first Standard deviation, I'll eat my mukluks. Of course she'd pass on account of all the "gotcha" questions.

Not stupid isn't enough, as I'm sure you'll agree.

It's not that she's smart. But she's as stupid as she pretends to be. It's not so much that's she stupid as she's incurious about any knowledge that doesn't directly serve her ambition. She's clever at manipulating people. It's a dangerous talent.
