Another VP announcement coming soon

The New York Times is reporting this morning that McCain will announce his running mate on Friday. I'm not at all surprised by the timing, as he naturally wants to stop the media hoopla that will take place after Obama's Thursday night speech. Even telling the press that he's about to announce is a ploy to get attention for himself and away from how both Bill Clinton and Joe Biden ripped into him during last night's speeches. From the Times:

Republicans close to the campaign said that the top contenders remained the same three men who have been the source of speculation for weeks: former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and, possibly, Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, independent of Connecticut.
No matter what, McCain has a rough road ahead of him. All three of his top contenders come with serious baggage to overcome.

And, though I've said it before I feel compelled to say it again: I hate Joe Lieberman. I mean, I hate Mitt Romney and John McCain, too, but I feel a more personal hatred toward Lieberman. McCain and Romney are wankers with really bad ideas, but Lieberman is a wanker with shit ideas, shit morals, shit loyalty...he's just shit, shit, shit.

So, how do you feel about Lieberman?
