After not showing up at the NAACP cattle call, Joe Lieberman went into full pander vote in apologizing:

After offering the NAACP another apology for skipping the candidates' forum and then ticking off his own civil rights credentials, Lieberman praised the NAACP for its work during the Florida recount. That's when things became absurd. "We didn't realize at the time, Al Gore and I, that we not only needed Kweisi Mfume fighting for justice here in Florida counting votes," Lieberman said, "we need him on the Supreme Court where the votes really counted. Maybe that'll happen some day."
The New Republic's primary blog asks:

So Lieberman--a man who once questioned affirmative action--is now saying that he'll put Kweisi Mfume--a man who, according to his biography on the NAACP website, has not even attended law school--on the Supreme Court?
Every time I think that there's a Democrat that I can support if Bush continues to falter, something like this happens. Is it any wonder that in poll matchups against Bush, an unnamed Democrat always stand a better chance of winning than real Democrats?
