The Weenie Party

Why do the Democrats always seem to wimp out?  When Lieberman went postal against the party, the Dems should have cut him off at the knees, dropping him from leadership posts on key committees.  But no, they let him again and again screw the party.  The latest, of course, is health care.  That Joe would betray the voters of Connecticut (guessing that the public option is popular there) is hardly surprising.  That the Democrats will probably flail and then fail will also be expected.

Are there any prominent Democratic politicians in the state that can run the next time Lieberman's seat is up?

Nate Silver's opinion is more optimistic, and also addresses the electoral stakes: http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/2009/10/somebody-buy-joe-lieberman-puppy.html

Hate Lieberman. Jon Chait eviscerates him here:
Wait-- it won't let me paste in a link. Is this some crazy new feature?!!!
