Time to Start Sucking Up...

Lieberman met with Harry Reid today. 

During the meeting in Reid's office, Lieberman rejected a proposed reprimand that included him being stripped of the chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee.

I'm not sure how he got away with that against the most powerful man in the Senate... the conversation must have gone something like this:

Reid: "So you've betrayed our party, endorsed an opposing Presidential candidate, campaigned extensively with this candidate, supported further involvement in Iraq, ran against a Democrat in 2006. This all comes after being our Vice Presidential Nominee on the 2000 ticket. You are now a member of neither party, and I am the Senate Majority Leader. I propose that I strip you of your chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee."

Lieberman: "No."

You go, Joe. 

UPDATE: Mitch McConnell invites Lieberman to the dark side of the force.
