Lieberman: Misguided, but not stupid

Well, I have to hand it to Lieberman for this:

"The Cabinet vacancy at the Department of Homeland Security was the subject of the latest overture, according to congressional and other government sources. Those sources said the earlier overture was to see whether Lieberman might be interested in becoming the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations."

He might still be talking bipartisanship, but at least he wasn't dumb enough to fall for this. One of the GOP's biggest base-support moves is to oppose the UN. You know, black helicopters, New World Order, rapture, etc. Just think how electrified they would have been if the US ambassador was Jewish. Orthodox, no less. It would have been open season on the UN for the kooky right. Props to Lieberman for not taking the bait.
