Putting trust in any leftwing politician to do the right thing has always been a vain endeavor but the final nail in the coffin was hammered in by Bart Stupak, a man whose name will live in infamy and could possibly be tied to the demise of the greatest societal experiment in history - The United States.

That's why I find this bit of news beyond laughable. In his role as Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman, Lieberman is once again portraying himself as the uncompromising politician; he will stop at nothing to make sure his demands are met.

Whatever. The Hill reported on April 15th:
Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) accused the Obama administration of stalling a congressional investigation into the Fort Hood shootings and threatened to start issuing subpoenas.

His vow opens a new rift with the White House for the Independent Lieberman, as well as the possibility of President Barack Obama’s first legal showdown with Congress.
Legal showdown between Lieberman and Obama? That's like promoting a fight between Apollo Creed and a Tomato can. This posturing on the part of congressmen - especially Democrat ones - is really getting pathetic. The ranking Republican on this committee that Lieberman chairs is none other than Republican Susan Collins (ME). Are you kidding me? Please try and tell me the author of this article wasn't laughing as he typed this paragraph:
A stern Lieberman said he and Collins have been stalled for five months in their attempts to seek answers in the Nov. 5, 2009, tragedy at the Texas military base, in which 13 people were shot dead. An Army psychiatrist, Maj. Nidal Hasan, is accused of the murders, which Lieberman and others have described as an act of terrorism because Hasan had been in contact with Islamic clerics and may have acted out of opposition to the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
A stern Lieberman? Please. That paragraph was topped just a little bit further in the article with this one:
Collins was just as stern, noting that Obama initially said he welcomed a congressional investigation into the shootings, and saying the committee “has taken step after step, made offer after offer and bent over backwards” to accommodate the administration’s concerns.
A stern Collins? You mean the one who voted for the Stimulus bill after getting stiff pressure from the White House? Now we're to believe she's going to stand up to them on the Nidal Malik Hasan case?

On Saturday, the White House predictably responded with a resounding yawn at Lieberman's demands. Again, via The Hill:
The Pentagon signaled on Saturday it would continue limiting lawmakers' access to details unearthed during the military's investigation of the shooting at Fort Hood.

Even after Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) threatened to subpoena the Pentagon on Friday in an attempt to obtain that information, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said the secrecy is necessary to allow the military's inquiry to continue uninhibited.
I'll gladly eat my words if Lieberman goest to the mat on this one but something tells me he'll bluster for a while, the White House will ignore him, and everyone will move onto something else.

Seriously, Obama and Rahm vs. Lieberman and Collins?
