Sen. Joe Lieberman Will Return To The Underworld From Which He Escaped

Connecticut’s Sen. Joe Lieberman is not going to seek a fifth term in 2012, but totally not because he has a slim chance in retaining his Senate seat! Having beat the drum for the Iraq War and John McCain, he’s upset the liberals that are generally responsible for putting him in office. So the pseudo-independent will leave office having pushed through that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repeal, and having given Saturday Night Live writers oodles of material. Also, this is a pretty good estimation that he won’t be heading into a presidential run, so rest easy.
