No Super Joe

Sen. Joe Lieberman’s support of John McCain means he’s lost his super powers.

Thanks to Zell Miller, there is a rule to deal with Joe Lieberman.

Lieberman’s endorsement of Republican John McCain disqualifies him as a super-delegate to the Democratic National Convention under what is informally known as the Zell Miller rule, according to Democratic State Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo.

Miller, then a Democratic senator from Georgia, not only endorsed Republican George Bush four years ago, but he delivered a vitriolic attack on Democrat John Kerry at the Republican National Convention.

The Democrats responded with a rule disqualifying any Democrat who crosses the aisle from being a super delegate. Lieberman will not be replaced, DiNardo said.

I think as additional punishment they should stick him up in the last row of seats in the very top row at the convention center — under the air conditioning unit that drips condensation on the people sitting below it — and wave one of those “We’re #1!” foam fingers for the whole four days.
