Independent Senator Joe Lieberman might want to watch his back. Democratic strategist and News & Notes contributor Donna Brazile is fuming over his RNC speech.

According to New York magazine's Web site:

Shortly after Lieberman addressed the RNC, we ran into Donna Brazile, Al Gore's presidential campaign manager, and asked her what she thought. "I was not impressed with his speech," she said. "I'm disappointed. I was the one who went to Al Gore and said 'Joe Lieberman.'" Does she feel betrayed? She paused and sighed, and said she wanted to save her thoughts for her Washington Post Roll Call column. "I've got to have it in my own words, because you don't know the history. It's personal. But you know what, dog?" she added, cryptically. "What goes around comes around. Payback's a bitch."
