Please Stop It

I actually think it's kind of important that people have some general level of respect for government and the people who run it, though of course that respect needs to be earned. A tremendous barrier to that is, well, the idiotic ways that senators behave. This isn't just about the general high wankery level of Joe Lieberman, it's about people who spend all day praising each other for their awesomeness. They do it in the media, they do it on the Senate floor, they do it in committee meetings, they do it when giving other sorts of presentations. Really, just stop it.
