Superdelegates down by one: Joe Lieberman stripped of status

It's kind of like an intervention.

Because he doesn't seem to understand that he doesn't belong in the Democratic Party and the Democratic Party doesn't want him, the Democratic State Chair has decided to strip Lieberman of his "Superdelegate" status.

From Firedoglake:

Thanks to Zell Miller, there is a rule to deal with Joe Lieberman.

Lieberman's endorsement of Republican John McCain disqualifies him as a super-delegate to the Democratic National Convention under what is informally known as the Zell Miller rule, according to Democratic State Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo.

Miller, then a Democratic senator from Georgia, not only endorsed Republican George Bush four years ago, but he delivered a vitriolic attack on Democrat John Kerry at the Republican National Convention.

The Democrats responded with a rule disqualifying any Democrat who crosses the aisle from being a super delegate. Lieberman will not be replaced, DiNardo said.
