The two wise men

Trying to figure out how Sens. John McCain and Joe Lieberman will feel on a certain subject is like trying to guess how many jellybeans are in a big jar.

Leiberman was once considered a pretty liberal guy, until he lost an election and had to run as an independent, now the only thing liberal about him is how long he grows his hair.

He votes with the Republicans most days, threatens to filibuster most everything and has shown to be one of the least trustworthy people in the Senate.

McCain has gone the other way. Once seen as one of the more intelligent politicians who was willing to work across the aisle for America, he pretty much just says no to everything, goes against his own words, breaks his own promises and votes against bills that he, himself, actually wrote at one time.

Maybe he's just bitter from losing a quest for presidency, twice, or maybe this is the true McCain rearing his ugly head.

Whatever the reason, it is apparent any bi-partisanship died when Ted Kennedy was no longer there to hold his hand. Maybe they should try to help each other out, the untrustworthy leading the cranky.
