The odious Joe LIEberman(Really R-Assholville) ought to have been stripped of his plum chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee, but no, 43 boneheads under the guise of compassion & a fake post-partisan zeal, voted to let LIEberman keep that job. The 13 Democrats, who truly understood what their party is supposed to stand for, wanted to throw this dickhead out with the rest of the ReThug trash. This will come back to bite them in the ass. One could make the argument that Smith, a moderate ReThug, but still a ReThug, was someone to support. That would make sense only if his Democratic opponent was someone like David Duke, but Smith's opponent, Jeff Merkley, support sexual orientation as a civil right, that's enough for me. We now find out the LIEberman also gave $5000, a nice chunk of change, to the douche bag "...too many mosques in this country" Peter King.
