Lieberman quitting before losing: If a frog leaves the swamp for the mountains, it means it is in danger

Joe Lieberman,the controversial Senator from Connecticut, is about to announce his 2012 retirement. There is no such thing as senator for life. Seen like Judas by Democrats for supporting John McCain instead of candidate Obama during the 2008 presidential election, Joe Lieberman is very unpopular in his state, making winning another term unlikely. Joe is also known for being stubborn and enjoys proving his detractors wrong. This time his loss is inevitable and he knows it. He hates the humiliation of losing a reelection. As the Baasa of Cameroon say, “If a frog leaves the swamp for the mountains, it means it is in danger.”
