Lieberman flip-flop on Iraq

Wha, wha, what? The man has placed the bong down and has picked up the crack pipe.
Sen. Joe Lieberman, the three-term Democrat whose independent campaign for re-election is being seen as a referendum on the Iraq war, said Friday he would consider taking a look at a fellow lawmaker's proposal for a timeline for troop withdrawals.

The proposal was floated by Republican Rep. Chris Shays, another Connecticut politician facing a tough re-election battle with an anti-war candidate. Shays has long been a supporter of the war and previously opposed withdrawal timetables.

"It seems to me that Chris is saying, maybe we ought to set some goals for when we want to get out, and I'd like to see what he has in mind before I comment on it," Lieberman said while campaigning in New Haven.

Good Lord! Are you kidding me!?!

Who does Joe Lieberman think he fooling? Isn't this the same Joe Lieberman who ripped Ned Lamont months ago for suggesting the very same idea?

Oh, I get it, Chris Shays is a Republican so it's okay. How foolish of me.
