GET RIGHT WITH GOD, JOE:

Weicker May Return to Politics Over Lieberman's Support of War (WILLIAM YARDLEY, 12/06/05, NY Times)

Former Gov. Lowell P. Weicker Jr. on Monday criticized Senator Joseph I. Lieberman's continued support of the war in Iraq and said that if no candidate challenged the senator on the issue in the 2006 election, he would consider running.

"When you've become the president's best friend on the war in Iraq, you should not be in office, especially if you're in the opposing party," Mr. Weicker, 74, said in a phone interview from his home in Essex, Conn.


Why don't the Republicans nominate Mr. Lieberman and the Democrats Mr. Weicker? As a Republican Senator Lieberman could even adhere to the tenets of his faith.
