The McCain-supporting independent Democrat — who gives the Dems a Senate majority — is ruffling some colleagues’ feathers as he increases his criticism of Obama.

Tells the LA Times: “Sure, it’s somewhat awkward. What I did was unconventional. I understand that. I’m a Democrat — an independent Democrat, but still a registered Democrat — supporting a Republican.”

Plus: Lieberman tells the NY Times he’ll propose a bill to limit commodity speculation next week.
