A Simple Solution

Poor Joe:

“Sen. Lieberman and I have a very open and honest working relationship,” Reid wrote in his statement. “On issues ranging from foreign policy to health care, even when we disagree, he has always been straightforward with me.”

But that apparently didn’t go far enough for Lieberman, who, like every other member of the honor-bound Senate, understands the perils of being labeled untrustworthy in a closed 100-member club.

There is a simple way to stop being labeled as untrustworthy, and that is to stop being a two-faced backstabbing prick. I’m sorry you and that jackass Marshall Wittman can’t get it through your heads, but since you have come out and basically admitted the only reason you screwed Reid was because Weiner and the liberals liked the medicare expansion too much, you are just going to have to deal with the label of “untrustworthy.”

If “untrustworthy” bothers you too much, I know a couple thousand people on a certain website who could come up with a few more choice labels for you.

    Last night, my best friend and I were compiling a list of people we would take out if we ever got batshitcrazy insane enough to want to kill ourselves (and take people with us. Standard disclaimer: NOT GONNA HAPPEN). Joe Lieberman is on the list. ‘Nuff said, though, I do like Droopy Dog.

    I love the Politico story. Basically Reid refuses to say the NY Times story was wrong, so what does Lieberman do, he proves to Reid again that he is a back stabbing liar by telling the Politico that Reid has told him privately the NY Times story was wrong even though there is no apparent reason he wouldn’t say that publicly if in fact it was true.

    I have to ask:

    Has anyone ever seen Joe Lieberman and the character “Willie” from Alf in the same room?

    if there is karma, in his next life Joe Lieberman will be a guy who loses his job, gets very sick, and loses everything he owns because he has no insurance. And he won’t have a wife pimping for insurance companies to save his ass.

    Joe Lieberman is such an honorable principled man, he has to stab his colleagues in the back, especially those who’ve come to his aid when he’s needed it. A lesser man might put gratitude above principal, but he never can. He always feels bad afterwards though.

    I wonder if Sunday’s article will bother to make a judgement on if Lieberman did renege on the deal. I doubt it.

    When Lieberman ran as an independent against Democrat Ned Lamont in the 2006 Connecticut Senate primary, top Washington Democrats took to the stump to boot Lieberman from office.

    Can you all remember any? Edwards is the only one I know of. The rest of the Democratic establishment voted for their good friend Joe Lieberman, including, if I’m not mistaken, the big dog himself.

    According to Haaretz, the Netanyahu administration was publicly hoping that health care reform would fail and deal Obama’s administration a blow before it could restart mideast “peace negotiations.” For Lieberman, attempting to screw up health care was just a party-line vote.

    Also, ‘Sy Ableman’ would be a worthy moniker. Sy, for those of you who don’t know, fucks your wife, tells you he’s moving in to your house and you have to move out, and then everybody acts like he’s such a great guy.

    After Lieberman gunned down five Democratic senators on the floor of the chamber during a debate, Reid insisted there was “no discussion” of removing Lieberman from his committee chairmanships or expelling him from the Democratic caucus.

    “Sen. Lieberman and I have a very open and honest working relationship,” Reid wrote in his statement. “On issues ranging from foreign policy to health care, even when we disagree, he has always been straightforward with me.”

    “He’s with us on everything except the Iraq war and the murder of Democratic senators,” Reid added.
