Further Studies in Foregone Conclusions

Sen. Joe Lieberman (?-CT) will endorse John McCain.

The two will appear together on Fox News on Monday, then at an 8 a.m. town hall meeting in Hillsborough, N.H. They will talk with reporters after the meeting. McCain is also scheduled to appear on NBC’s “Today” program.

The move, which will help cultivate McCain’s moderate status, is an effort to draw attention to the McCain campaign, which needs a splash. Otherwise, it does not make sense for McCain because it will only remind core Republicans why they distrust him.

This is one of those alliances that reminds you of the kids who hung out together in high school because they only had each other. Both Mr. Lieberman and Mr. McCain have done everything they could to piss off their respective parties; Mr. Lieberman by sucking up to the Bush war hawks, and McCain by flirting with being John Kerry’s running mate in 2004. So they only have each other…and they pretty much deserve each other.
