    no matter what color the tie he is obviously going down, but enjoying his last sip. I fully expect someone to “Berlusconi” Liebermann in the next months; perhaps not so brutally but with and egg, a pie, feces…many people are fed up with him and his smarminess….

    The picture tells a lot about US. Don’t blame him, it is the sustaining public, who elected him. What would you call the electorate? Look at the record of Lie Bermann, it is clear as water.

    Michael, stay alert. I predict if he drinks that water, later he will have to pee. And that will require day-long, “Russert is dead” level coverage.
