While much of Washington kept rapt attention on the health of Democratic Senator Tim Johnson of South Dakota, an article in Salon today speculated that President George W. Bush could tip the Senate to a Republican majority via other means -- namely, appointing Senator Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut to be America's next Ambassador to the UN.Fine. Get 'im gone. But imagine a resentful collection of Democratic Senators voting against the prick, denying him the seat at the U.N. Now wouldn't that be fun? Of course he'd have to resign before receiving the guarantee of getting confirmed to assure a Repo majority, although I'm made to wonder if there might not be even ONE Republican who'd vote against him.
Right! I'll hold my breath.
