Connecticut for Lieberman Party Chairman Calls For Lieberman Resignation

This is a funny story.

Last year, after being bested in the Democratic primary, Joe Lieberman-- realizing that he could not allow pesky 'voters' to keep him from Connecticut's his seat-- formed his own party to run as an independent. He called it the 'Connecticut For Lieberman' party (how telling that it wasn't the other way around).

Earlier this year, a man named John Orman decided to mess with Lieberman and changed his registration to this new party, making him its only registered member. He appointed himself party chairman. He passed a series of party rules, including that "If any CFL candidate loses our party's nomination in a primary, that candidate must bolt our party, form a new party and work to defeat our party's endorsed candidate."

If I lived in Connecticut, I'd be jealous I hadn't thought of it myself.

Now, Chairman Orman has called for Sen. Lieberman's resignation because of his increasingly belligerent demands for war against Iran. "He has crossed the line," Orman said.

Sen. Lieberman has not responded and remains in the Senate, where he enjoys his final year and a half as a person of consequence, until 2009 when an increased Democratic majority will render him pointless.
