Joe Lieberman, officially a conservative

By tmcbpatriot

Joe Lieberman has a new job. He will be co-chair of the American Enterprise Institute's "American Internationalism Project," led by former Senator Jon Kyl. 

Of the AIP, Kyl writes: "Fiscal constraints, weariness with war and isolationism are eroding the American will to lead. The nation has often chafed 'at the burden of our obligations.' But what once appeared to be a truism of an earlier era – the willingness to shoulder 'the burdens of leadership in the free world' – has ceased to resonate with many Americans. American internationalism has never been simply a response to threats, but an expression of who Americans are and what kind of world we want to live in."

So Joe Lieberman, a man once considered for VP, who turned his back on Democrats when they needed him most, and who still pretends to be an independent, is now going to work for a Republican think tank to help them find new ways to start wars, all in the name of bipartisanship. Seriously, how does this guy sleep at night?
