One of today’s Roll Call alerts leads with this opener: “With the controversy surrounding Sen. Joe Lieberman (ID-Conn.) speaking at the GOP presidential convention and his name being floated as a potential GOP running mate, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) maintains that there will be no consequences for the Independent-Democrat.”
What “consequences” would there BE…?
Does this mean Reid has called off his privately funded band of mercenary thugs? Or changed his mind about bribing a Senate dining room server to poison Lieberman’s lunch?
And is this anything like Jack Nicholson’s order (in the film A Few Good Men) that Private So-and-So was “not to be harmed”?
