Evolution of a Right Wing Attack Dog

On Joe Lieberman's saying "Obama has not always put his country first", Andrew Sullivan says:

And so the evolution from hawkish Democrat to Republican attack-dog continues. What Lieberman is doing is what a vice-presidential candidate tends to do: savage the opponent. Or more accurately, what Rove Republican vice-presidential candidates have been trained to do: savage the opponent as a traitor. It's funny but I don't recall him ever being so aggressive when he was Gore's running mate.

Yeah, well, 9/11 changed everything, blah, blah, blah.
