Just Say No To Joe

This petition from the weblog, FireDogLake, was just sent to me by my friend Joanne in Delaware:

Just Say No to Joe
To: Members of the Senate Democratic Steering and Outreach Committee

Dear Senators,

Two years ago, Democrats in Joe Lieberman's own state voted for change in Connecticut's U.S. Senate primary against Ned Lamont.

Despite pledges to caucus with the party and refrain from attacking our presidential nominee, Senator Lieberman has consistently threatened to leave our ranks and even attacked Barack Obama as keynote speaker during Republican Convention.

Earlier this week, he even campaigned against a "filibuster-proof Democratic majority." Make no mistake about it, when graciously offered a chance to remain in the caucus at the expense of his chairmanship, he offered more threats in a nationally televised press conference.

The decision is now up to you. Please do not allow Joe Lieberman to go around Senator Reid and remain chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

Though Lieberman has not investigated one meaningful scandal in his role as chairman during the Bush Administration, we are certain he will only be too happy to cause problems for an Obama administration when 2009 rolls around.

It's time for Joe to go.

Please sign the letter to the 19 Senators on the Senate Democratic Steering and Outreach Committee who determine committee chairs -- and ask them to relieve Joe Lieberman of his gavel before the start of the next Congress.

You've read Bruce's post just before this one, now go to the petition link, and do something about this nonsense.
