Note to Florida Democrats

Don't you dare trot out Senator Bill "Spineless" Nelson again while someone is running on a change platform. Hell don't trot him out in this county or Broward. Why am I on an anti-Bill Nelson rage moment?

Because Naked Politics let's us know that:

Senate Democrats today decided not to oust Joe Lieberman from the caucus or his committee chairmanship despite campaigning against president-elect Barack Obama. Among those helping Lieberman retain his status: Florida Sen. Bill Nelson.

The Dems emerged from a closed door session to announce they voted against expelling the Connecticut Democrat: "He's part of this caucus,'' Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said.

Lieberman thanked Reid and singled out what he called "four great friends who led this effort to draft this resolution ...my senior senator from Connecticut, Chris Dodd, Senator Ken Salazar of Colorado, Senator Bill Nelson of Florida and Senator Tom Carper of Delaware."

And furthermore, to clarify something, what kind of spineless, weak and pathetic democrats allow this man to stay? Ah Green Mountain Daily of the great state of Vermont tells us:
This just in... reports are that the Dem caucus has voted to allow Lieberman to keep his Chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee.

The vote was 42-13 to allow Lieberman to keep the chair.

With 55 votes, the new members were obviously all in attendance.

Apparently our two Senators, Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders, spoke out against rewarding Lieberman with a committee chairmanship.

More to follow...

UPDATE: Among the senators, speaking in support of rewarding Senator Lieberman with a Committee Chairmanship bestowed by the Democratic caucus, include: Kerry, Durbin, Ben Cardin, and Tom Udall.

The 42 pathetic and spineless cowards should come out and say what position they took.

One more update:
Sen. Reid, Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and John Kerry, D-Mass., were among those speaking in his favor, according to a Democratic aide requiring anonymity to discuss a private meeting.
