Maybe He'll Run As An Independent Super-delegate?

Or: Karma Pays A Visit To Joe Lieberman

The Garlic espied this juicy morsel late last evening;

Lieberman No Longer a Super Delegate

"Thanks to Zell Miller, there is a rule to deal with Joe Lieberman.

Lieberman's endorsement of Republican John McCain disqualifies him as a super-delegate to the Democratic National Convention under what is informally known as the Zell Miller rule, according to Democratic State Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo.

Miller, then a Democratic senator from Georgia, not only endorsed Republican George Bush four years ago, but he delivered a vitriolic attack on Democrat John Kerry at the Republican National Convention.

The Democrats responded with a rule disqualifying any Democrat who crosses the aisle from being a super delegate. Lieberman will not be replaced, DiNardo said."

And we join Jane Hamsher, from Firedoglake, who offered "And for those who said they'd never lift their glass in a toast to Zell Miller...cheers!"
