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

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.
