More of that famous Lieberman "civility":
When Joe Lieberman heard that his political challenger, Ned Lamont, had dined with Israeli Vice Premier, Shimon Peres, it must have reminded him of the day when Jim McGreevy switched from the Lieberman presidential campaign to declare for Howard Dean.
By December 19, 2003, Mr. Dean and the anti-Iraq war Democrats were riding high and the then New Jersey governor thought to catch the wave — even though he had been backing Mr. Lieberman and his political line for years.
Mr. McGreevey called the senator to rationalize his public endorsement of Mr. Dean, and Senator Lieberman replied, "Don't piss on me and tell me it's raining."
