Last Lieberman Post

Sorry! Just this one.

Gotta get it out of my system. I'm so 'old politics'. Forgiving Joe Lieberman is akin to forgiving Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Feith, Wolfowitz, et. al. Have to move on, of course. But I'm not into forgivin' or forgettin'. I'm into indicting, prosecuting, convicting, and interning. My country has been occupied for the last eight years, and Joe Lieberman has been the quisling-in-chief.

Anyways ... I'll promise not to feature him in another post. I will undoubtedly mention him again, though. Maybe by using a agnomen. Maybe in code. Something like,
  • Angry Joe
  • Backrub Joe
  • Bush-shill Joe'!
  • Geo-mentum
  • Ho-Joe's (also, Ho Lieberman
  • Holy Joe
  • Homentum
  • Jellystone Joe
  • Jihad Joe
  • Jo(ke)
  • Joe-Joe
  • Joe-limit.
  • Joe-mama
  • Joe-miserable
  • Joe-nan the Bar-Lieberman
  • Joe E. Brown-nose
  • Joe Lipschitz
  • Joe Naderman
  • Joe Rolloverman
  • Joe Stalin'
  • Joe Woe
  • Joebituary
  • Joeblivion
  • JoeBlodick&bush
  • Joechille Lauro
  • Joectum
  • Joedacious
  • Joedas
  • Joedmund Fitzgerald
  • Joedultery
  • Joeforgettum
  • Joeheimers
  • Joelirious
  • JoeLow
  • Joementia
  • Joementum
  • Joenertia
  • Joenertia
  • Joenis
  • JoeNothing
  • Joentropy
  • Joerethra
  • Joesitania
  • JoeSkewered
  • Joesticle
  • Joestipated
  • Joetanic
  • Joetestine
  • Joetox
  • JoeTox
  • Joevary
  • Joevember
  • LiebernoiaJoeseidon
  • Lieberschnitzel
  • Lonesome Joe
  • Shameless Joe
  • Sloppy Joe
  • Slow Joe
  • Trader Joe
  • Traitor Joe
  • Weepy Joe

I'll make every effort to keep this promise to what few faithful readers I have left, keeping in mind that Joe-what's-name never made a promise he kept.

Joedirtysanchez, joeyboy, Or, and I like this a lot, Joe Lieberman, the new Ambassador to Israel. Joe does not have the interests of the United States as his first concern, he's allegiance is entirely to Israel, right or wrong, under any circumstances, good for the U.S. or not. So go Joe. We don't want you anymore.

Nice pun Vig. How about Holy Joek?

LOL, Utah. You're as foul mouthed as Al Swearingen—I love it (and him).

I find this article disturbing: They voted 42 to 13 by secret ballot that Lieberman... should not be stripped of his chairmanship of the Homeland Security panel, but they condemned statements he made during the campaign criticizing President-elect Barack Obama. Yeah, OK.

At least Ted Stevens is out in Alaska, and there's still a possibility of Al "Fighting" Franken winning in Minnesota.

Does anyone know anything about Eric Holder, who served as deputy attorney general during the Clinton administration. Obama is vetting him for Attorney General.

Hang on: it's going to be a bumpy ride.

Well here goes: Following more careful research and putting aside my emotional position on Mr. Lieberman I find that I must agree with the Wizard's comments on the last Lieberman post.

We have a new leader and it is time that we come together. While booting Lieberman would certainly provide some vicarious satisfaction it would not increase the possibility of senate votes. Vigil I don't believe the Republicans would turn him away. They would welcome him with open arms because they need all the help they can get. I liken this situation to the debate on capital punishment. It serves no purpose other than revenge. It is not a deterrent and it costs 6 times more to execute than it does to incarcerate for life yet the majority of Americans still support it.

As to Lieberman being a security risk, well sorry, I'm just not buying that. This does not mean, however, that we can't call and laugh at him!

So....that being said....:-)

I sympathise with you Vig but it's reported that Pres-elect Obama himself exerted great effort for the Dems to keep Lieberman.

The report from The Hill said that Lieberman will now owe Barack one.

But forewarned is forearmed -- every single Dem in the Senate should look over his shoulder when Lieb is around and not allow Joek to spring another surprise.

Hillblogger, et al--

vig nailed it with the pic. As LBJ once said, "Never trust a man unless his balls are in your pocket." (In this case, they're in a gym bag, but same difference.)

Lieberman's political career is now owned by Barack Obama. Very high-level stuff was pulled, and Holy Joe will be servicing the agenda and reaching across (or should I say, "around") the aisle.

Maclord, I love the image of the Lieberman reach around. And his balls are in Barack's pocket. I'm not kidding when I say I'd love to have Leiberman banished to Israel. Or some utter backwater in a hostile environment, somewhere where the weather is foul and he can do no harm. In effect banishment. Or wait for the voters of Connecticut to hand him a kick in the pants and then obscurity. Who could ever trust him?

I still think Cindy will divorce John, which will make it possible for Joe and John to finally make it legal. They are in love with each other. Poor Lindsay. He'll be so alone.

Again, Utah, Puuuurfect.

Lindsay, John, and Joek - 2008's ménage à trois. What's to become of them?

I'm kind of partial to "Ho-Joe." It certainly fits his role in the McCain.

I agree with Mike, Lieberman being sent over to the republicans would give them a martyr to wave in the faces of independents in 2012. President Obama needs to keep Lieberman's balls in a mayo jar up on the fireplace mantle in the Oval office and leave his slimy ass swinging in the breeze when it comes time for Joe to run for reelection.

Thanks Beach! It seems that we are in the minority and that's just fine with me!

Nate Silver says that Obama is playing a deep game.

So how you feel about Lieberman should ultimately hinge on how you feel about Obama, and how you feel about Obama should ultimately hinge on your opinion about whether he is liable to put that political capital to good use. If you believe Dean's implication that Obama is going to use that political capital to pass both significant climate change reform and significant health care reform within the first two years of his presidency, you probably ought to give him the benefit of the doubt. If, on the other hand, you see Obama as someone more concerned with the accumulation of power toward ambiguous, uncertain, or incorrect ends, this is liable to be the first of a long line of displeasing decisions, and you had better get used to pushing back against the White House.
