I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Good Bye Joe

Lieberman Says War Vote Could Prompt Party Switch
The majority in the Senate is not worth having to put up with Joe Lieberman's bull shit. Jump Joe jump, we don't want you and never did. The only reason you caucused with the Dems was you thought you could black mail them. We don't like slimy political hacks and we like black mailers even less. The Democratic tent is big but not big enough for neocons and PNAC lunatics. So do it Joe, the sooner the better. And while you are at it make it official, announce you are a member of the Likud Party. Joe Lieberman, Likud, Connecticut; sounds like it rings true to me.
In the comments section shirt makes this excellent point.
And what do we lose? The republicans will again regain the Senate and complete ownership of the war in the eyes of the public! Currently, the public thinks the dems can do something about the war and that just isn't the case. I'm not to woried about senate commitees: they'll be more than balanced by the house.
I would add that since the Senate Republicans will own it they will be much more likely to go against Bush/Cheney and do something about it. Joe's switching sides will be a plus for everyone but Joe.

Update 2
David Sirota has more on the positives if Lieberman should jump.
