Lieberman makes Buzzflash's GOP Hypocrite of the Week

The hits keep coming..

Welcome back to the GOP Hypocrite of the Week.

What could be more hypocritical than a losing political candidate, in a tactless concession speech, accusing the winner of "partisan polarizing," as the defeated office holder seeks to split the Democratic Party by running as an Independent?

Well, it is hard to be more hypocritical than Joe Lieberman has increasingly been over 18 years as a Senator who has become increasingly self-righteous and estranged from voters and reality.

Joe Lieberman was the first Democrat to denounce Bill Clinton on the Senate Floor for a sexual indiscretion. But as George W. Bush has led this nation into failure after failure on national security and repeated violations of the Constitution, Lieberman has been the biggest Democratic booster of the man.

In short, Lieberman has confused his support for failure and a fantasy Bushevik worldview with his assertion of religious piety that he believes makes him unassailably righteous and honest. And Lieberman is so full of himself that he named his ad hoc Independent Party, the Connecticut for Lieberman Party.
