BuzzFlash's GOP Hypocrite Of The Week

Hey, it's Friday, which means it's time to check out BuzzFlash's "GOP Hypocrite Of The Week." As always, it's a grueling process to narrow the selection to just one Republican hypocrite, and this week BuzzFlash went with Senator Joe Lieberman for, well, being Joe Lieberman.

An excerpt:
Since we began publishing in May of 2000, the gold standard for Republicans in high places has been brazen hypocrisy. That's why we created this special BuzzFlash site to "honor" those who practice the opposite of what they preach.

It's been hard choosing a "winner" each week, given that few Republicans are not hypocrites. It's their brand, after all.

Of course, every once in awhile comes along a Democrat who comes out of the closet as a Republican, and such is the case with Joe Lieberman.

Lieberman could be a Jewish James Dobson in that he oozes with such self-righteousness, while practicing the politics of fear and hysteria.

Joe bet that if he supported McCain, he might end up as the first person to run for vice president as a Democrat and then a Republican. Now that is an odd way to make it into the history books, but for Joe it was mission unaccomplished. Given McCain's loss at the polls, Lieberman couldn't achieve his fallback position to become a Republican Secretary of Defense.
