AP gets prickly with Lieberman

Talk about your Freudian slips. Major wire service tells us how it really feels about Senator Sanctimony.

This AP item, noted by a Daily Kos diarist, is just too precious not to share:

His top contenders are said to include Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Less traditional choices mentioned include former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, an abortion-rights supporter, and Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, the Democratic vice presidential prick in 2000 who now is an independent.

Could not have happened to a more sanctimonious traitor.
