Holy Joe Bags on Feingold

It's being reported in the comments that Boxer says she will support the resolution although I wasn't able to confirm it when I called her office (San Francisco didn't know, DC was closed).

And Holy Joe doesn't let us down:
But Sen. Joe Lieberman, D- Conn., voiced some misgivings and hinted that he’d vote no on the Feingold resolution.

“Frankly I’d prefer to spend our time on figuring out ways to bring this very important program of surveillance of potential terrorists here in the United States under the law…. I disagree with the Bush administration’s legal judgment on this one…. But this is a critically important program to the prevention of terrorist acts here in the United States.”
While Lieberman worships in the Bush Cargo Cult, Ned Lamont officially announced his candidacy today at a kick-off party. Howie Klein reviews the music.

You can say thanks for the Joementum by giving to Ned Lamont.

Update: Lieberman also does the honors trashing Feingold with the Washington Post, saying he'd prefer to "'solve the problem' rather than scold the president."

Update II: Redd will be on Majority Report with Sam Seder tonight at 5:04 PST/8:04 EST.
