Idiocy = bipartisanship
At least that's how I read this Newsweek article about Bush's pet senator. And which senator would that be? Why, LiebesBush of course.

His treason to the democratic party and common sense is no longer limited to Iraq and hawkishness on Iran. Now he's dumping oversight investigations that he promised in his campaign.

Sen. Joe Lieberman, the only Democrat to endorse President Bush's new plan for Iraq, has quietly backed away from his pre-election demands that the White House turn over potentially embarrassing documents relating to its handling of the Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans.

Lieberman's reversal underscores the new role that he is seeking to play in the Senate as the leading apostle of bipartisanship, especially on national-security issues. On Wednesday night, Bush conspicuously cited Lieberman's advice as being the inspiration for creating a new "bipartisan working group" on Capitol Hill that he said will "help us come together across party lines to win the war on terror."

The underminer is trying to get more Democrats to undermine the party in the name of bi-partisanship. I call bullshit. 80% of the country wants what we want. Undermining what 80% of the country wants isn't bipartisanship, especially when it's common sense stuff like ending a stupid war, competition in drug pricing, etc. It's not bipartisanship, it's just stupidity.
