Betrayed by Lieberman

The Dish profiles an article about Lieberman's recent dalliance with the tea-party brigade.

The article quotes one man who had originally thought Lieberman was one of them because of his opposition to the Obama health insurance reform plan, but then was shown Lieberman's true colors when Lieberman praised the Democratic bill. "He's just up here for himself," the man said.

Pray tell, find me one politician in Washington who is not up there for him/herself! In his fantastic book, What's the Matter with Kansas?, Thomas Frank describes the mass delusion from which conservatives suffer -- that they vote time and again for people who speak platitudes to them about their signature issues, but then get absolutely nothing done about them once they're elected (and never will).
