Lieberman Socks has produced an ad showing Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and fellow senators as sock puppets. Lieberman's colleagues scramble to meet his demands so that he will support a public option or a public option trigger or a Medicare expansion–all to no avail. Watch:

Mr. Lieberman could not be happier. He is right where he wants to be — at the center of the political aisle, the center of the Democrats’ efforts to win 60 votes for their sweeping health care legislation. For the moment, he is at the center of everything — and he loves it.

“My wife said to me, ‘Why do you always end up being the point person here?’ ” he said, flashing a broad grin in an interview on Monday.
