Cory Booker Keeps Digging, Calls Himself An 'Independent Democrat'

Well, Mayor Booker had a chance to make it right on Maddow last night, and he failed miserably. Starting with, "BOOKER: My outrage, and really my frustration, was about the cynical, negative campaigning, the manipulating of the truth." And then it got worse.

Really, Mayor? Because the Obama campaign's claims about Bain are true. So what was "cynical" and "manipulative" about it?

And then it got worse.

BOOKER: For anybody that knows me, and that really knows my career, I've been an Independent Democrat for a long time, standing up on issues. And actually have been comfortable to say I disagree with the president...

God, this guy is totally clueless.

Let me give you some free advice, Mayor. Following in Joe Lieberman's footsteps is not a good career move in Democratic politics.

Just go away already.
