What Chris Bowers Said

In reswsponse to the news that Lieberman would speak at the Republican convention, Mr. Bowers noted:
I believe this is what some Senate Democrats were waiting for before deciding to strip Lieberman of his committee chair next year. I still remain skeptical that they will actually strip him of his committee chair, since it will demonstrate self-respect and a willingness to stand up to conservative Democrats. This just isn't something you see much of from our representatives in Congress, particularly the latter.
I agree. If I would argue that not only should he be stripped of his committee chairmanship, but of his seniority too.

Of course, that would require a spine, an unlikely event.
