Liberal pundits lose it over Joe Lieberman 

The same guy thought "death panels" was hyperbole

"He's willing to directly cause the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people in order to settle an old electoral score."

--Washington Post blogger Ezra Klein on Independent Democrat Senator Joe Lieberman's refusal to go along with Senate Democrats' health care plan.

More Lieberman lunacy

"Joe will do anything to get back at the mean liberals who hurt his feelings - even if it means hundreds of thousands of people have to die without health care. Doesn't that make him a sociopath?"

--Liberal blogger Susie Madrak of Crooksandliars.com.


Another coordinated talking point

"The leverage that Lieberman and other “centrists” have obtained on [health care reform] (and on climate change) stems from a demonstrated willingness to embrace sociopathic indifference to the human cost of their actions."

--Think Progress blogger Matt Yglesias.

Grading on a curve

"I suspect that Lieberman is the beneficiary, or possibly the victim, of a cultural stereotype that Jews are smart and good with numbers. Trust me, it's not true."

--The New Republic's Jonathan Chait.
