Please, please, not Whiney Joe 

I told you Bush's next choice for DHS Fuhrer would be worse than Kerik:

Sen. Susan Collins, the Maine Republican who heads the Senate committee that will take up the nomination, said two "terrific choices" would be Asa Hutchinson, the department's undersecretary for border and transportation security, and Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn.

If there's anything that conclusively demonstrates Al Gore's tone-deafness, it was Gore letting Whiney Joe anywhere near a national ticket. After which, of course, Whiney Joe promptly sold Gore out, on national TV, by caving to the Republican thugs on the military vote during the Florida 2000 Republican coup.

Of course, I do like the spectacle of Connecticut's Littlest Senator twisting slowly, slowly in the wind, and then not getting nominated, but even the merest hint of Joementum makes my skin crawl.

Please, God, let the nominee be Hutchison. Otherwise the odor of sanctimonious and deeply fake bi-partisanship will be way too stifling.

And Susan. Why haven't you crossed the aisle, yet? Maine's Blue, and it needs Social Security to work.
