Lieberman flips on wacko Bolton

Shocking.

What's there to say?

Lieberman loses Democratic primary... finds himself in need of even more republican votes... faces unexpectedly tenacious challenge from the other republican Alan Schlesinger... flip flops on John Bolton. Bolton of the mustache. Bolton who "endangered our national security."

Jon Stewart on Bolton: "Bush tried to turn the spotlight on Bolton's positive characteristics. For example, did you know he was born of human parents?"

From the Ned Lamont statement:

A year ago, [Lieberman] opposed John Bolton's nomination to the United Nations because he was unqualified. At that time, he had the power of a bipartisan majority behind him in opposing Bolton. Today, when the political winds shift in the other direction, Senator Lieberman is supporting John Bolton, who has no more experience or qualifications for the job than he did a year ago.
