The left side of the blogalaxy is fantasizing about primary challenges to Senator Joseph Lieberman, not just because of his stands on issues in support of Our Noble Lame Duck, but mostly because of their snuggling up in public. Now we've found out how the disaffected Dems have been wronging poor Joe.
...the Navy is poised to unveil plans today to slash by up to half its planned orders for vessels that were to be built at shipyards in Bath, Maine, and Groton, Conn., that employ a combined 18,000 people.
So much for blue states, even if their members of Congress do back his agenda. That was not a romantic interlude at the State Of The Union. George was only emulating the family values of the Godfather:
He kisses his brother once again.

MICHAEL (in Sicilian): I know it was you, Fredo.
For obvious reasons, it wouldn't be possible to shoot Joe while he says a Hail Mary fishing on the lake. Instead his constituents get the knife while Pal Joey is still applauding the new Hispanic Grand Inquisitor. The Senator should have remembered the words of the Dread Pirate Roberts:
Inigo Montoya: I hate waiting. I could give you my word as a Spaniard.

Man in Black: No good. I've known too many Spaniards.
Or, if he didn't see that movie, he might have consulted the history books for a perfect example of what he should have expected:
A commissioner sent by the Spanish king to inquire into the charges placed him and his brother in chains and sent them to Spain. When the captain of the ship offered to free him from his fetters, Columbus proudly replied: "No, I will wear them as a memento of the gratitude of princes."
