Reid: Joe Wasn¿t Jolted

Lieberman: Table for one, please

Harry Reid's office is denying what they call a "false" Roll Call story claiming the Majority Leader and increasingly ostracized Joe Lieberman "agreed" to a deal that the Connecticut Independent will "no longer attend Democrats' weekly caucus lunches or the biweekly chairmen's lunches used to formulate policy."

But they're not denying the gist-- that Lieberman will no longer be eating his egg salad in the party's inner sanctum.

The statement from Reid spokesman Jim Manley: "While it is no secret that the Democratic caucus is disappointed in Senator Lieberman's attacks on Senator Obama, the irresponsible report that Senator Lieberman has been excluded from caucus meetings is completely untrue. Senator Lieberman has chosen to not attend Democratic caucus lunches, and that is his choice."
