Lieberman To Speak At The 2008 GOP Convention?

On this week's Meet the Press, Tom Brokaw wondered if McCain supporter and Democratic turncoat Sen. Joe Lieberman was still planning on infiltrating caucusing with the Democrats following this November's election and got around to asking him point blank whether he planned on being this year's Zell Miller at the GOP convention:

Brokaw: Are you going to speak at the Republican convention? [...]

Lieberman: That decision hasn't been made. If Senator McCain feels that I can help his candidacy, which I think it's so important to elect him our next President, I will do it. [...] And frankly, I’m going to go to a partisan convention and tell them — if I go — why it’s so important that we start to act like Americans and not as partisan mud-slingers. [...]

Brokaw: Sounds like you're going to go.

Lieberman: Well, we'll see.

Kerry: Sounds like that to me too.

Before asking, Brokaw pointed out the growing dissatisfaction with Lieberman's support for the Republican nominee and even mentioned the online petition 'Lieberman Must Go' dedicated to ending this poser's Democratic party leadership positions on the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committees. Have you signed onto it yet?
