Franken’s snit against Lieberman

Material for a Saturday Night Live skit,
Franken shuts down Lieberman on Senate floor

Franken was presiding over the Senate Thursday afternoon as Lieberman spoke about amendments he planned to offer to the bill. Lieberman asked for an additional moment to finish — a routine request — but Franken refused to grant the time.

“In my capacity as the senator from Minnesota, I object,” Franken said.

“Really?” said Lieberman. “OK.”

Red State has it on video:

While Franken’s spokesperson said time limits were strictly enforced due to the urgency of the bill, Michelle Malkin noticed that

Harry Reid is nearly an hour late to the Senate floor to make a motion to adjourn.

After he got there, Harry blamed the Republicans.

Well, at least Harry didn’t blame Lieberman.

    Is the Democratic Party still beating Joe Lieberman’s wife?

  6. O Bloody Hell Says:

    I disagree with Lieberman on most things, but I’d still seriously consider him against many candidates, just because it’s clear to me that the man has integrity, which is something all too uncommon among politicians.

    Not sure if that’s a “new” thing, or if it’s just getting the RCGs removed, but we need more politicians with integrity.
