why I hate Senator Lieberman

Yesterday, "the US Senate fell four votes short of restoring Habeas Corpus, the fundamental constitutional right of individuals to challenge government detention, which the Republican Congress revoked in last year's Military Commissions Act. Fifty-six senators supported a procedural move to tie the Habeas provision to legislation authorizing defense spending--a step that requires sixty votes." - from Yahoo news

"Say it ain't so" Joe Lieberman, one of the senators who "represents" my state in the Senate, voted against the bill.

(Our other Senator, Chris Dodd, voted for the bill.)
