what gets Joe out of the house on a Saturday?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I seem to remember something from 2000 where Joe Lieberman, then Al Gore’s running mate, refused to campaign on the Sabbath. So, how is it that it is now OK with traitor Joe to schlep his wrinkly ass over to the Senate chambers on a Saturday to speak out against his Democratic colleagues (as well as seven Republican ones, I might add) and vote against cloture on the latest version of a non-binding resolution denouncing the escalation of the Iraq War?

For those that hate trying to keep procedural votes on non-binding resolutions straight, voting against cloture—voting against voting, really—prevents the Senate from expressing, in a rather tepid and non-binding way, that it has the sense that President Bush’s plan to escalate the war in Iraq is a rather bad idea. In other words, like Joe’s own, escalating the Iraq War is a good idea.

Excuse me for going all biblical on your ass, Joe, but what happened to not creating or destroying on the Sabbath? What now makes it OK to go to the Hill, speak, and vote on a Saturday afternoon? What makes it OK to create a bigger quagmire in Iraq? What makes it OK to vote to destroy even more lives?
