WASHINGTON (AP)-Democrat-turned-independent Sen. Joe Lieberman said Monday a third-party candidate could emerge to shake things up in the 2008 presidential race unless the two major parties tackle the growing problem of partisan polarization that alienates many voters.

"I think the public is fed up," he said. "If the two major parties don't hear this going into '08, there is a real chance of an independent third-party candidacy -- and watch out if that happens," he said at a forum on civility and politics on Capitol Hill."

Because this country is clearly clamoring for a nagging flip-flopping scold who favors higher taxes and escalating the Iraq war.

Well, if by "shake things up" he means "make people watch in slack-jawed horror as though they were passing a devatstating traffic accident," um, maybe.
