Obama Bullies Stupid Joe Lieberman On Senate Floor

by Jim Newell

The worst U.S. Senator, “Grampa” Joe Lieberman, has been needling (overtly mocking) Obama a little bit too much recently, it seems, leading to this fantastic confrontation today: “Obama dragged Lieberman by the hand to a far corner of the Senate chamber and engaged in what appeared to reporters in the gallery as an intense, three-minute conversation.” Obama’s stance was “intimidating,” according to the reporter, who is most likely a white person. Look at how Obama really stuck it to that frumpy fuck: “Using forceful, but not angry, hand gestures, Obama literally backed up Lieberman against the wall, leaned in very close at times, and appeared to be trying to dominate the conversation, as the two talked over each other in a few instances.” Then some Irish cops arrested Obama and put him on death row for attempted murder, without a hearing.

Just when I thought I couldn’t love Barry any more.

Dave J. June 4, 2008 at 4:29 pm

And Harriet Christian just had a heart attack, as this confirms everything she believes. She then recovered and settled down to a nice dinner with her 93 cats and told them all about “the blacks.”

El Bombastico June 4, 2008 at 4:29 pm

Crown Heights!! Crown Heights!! Never forget!

Advocatus_Diaboli June 4, 2008 at 4:31 pm

I’m sure Hadassah has already cleaned Joe’s kosher underpants.

guerilla-nation June 4, 2008 at 4:32 pm

the last legislator that was intimidated by a black man offered $20 to suck his dick (see bob allen).

any word on whether lieberman tried to buy a ticket on the vein train?

NotUrEvryDayWEzl June 4, 2008 at 4:32 pm

[re=7075]Dave J.[/re]: Are any of her cats black? It would fit her profile.

grobby22 June 4, 2008 at 4:32 pm

Barry to Joey,”I will kick your suburban white ass”!

daneellaw June 4, 2008 at 4:32 pm

You would think that after Obama pledged support for Joe’s people in Israel, he’d show a little more deference.

eatsshootsleaves June 4, 2008 at 4:33 pm

Well, obviously. Even secret Muslims don’t like the Jews. Someone alert Fox, quick!

daneellaw June 4, 2008 at 4:33 pm

Must be a Muslim/Jewish thing.

obfuscator June 4, 2008 at 4:33 pm

I hope this is just a preview of Barry in general election mode.

V572625694 June 4, 2008 at 4:33 pm

Putting Vinegar Joe’s back to the wall ought to be enough to make Barry preznet by universal acclimation, right now!

Dave J. June 4, 2008 at 4:34 pm

[re=7083]NotUrEvryDayWEzl[/re]: Yes, and she yells at them for constantly napping and not being industrious mousers like her other (Irish) cats.

“Obama dragged Lieberman by the hand”

Lucky Lieberman.

I bet he was trying to get Joe to go smoke crack with him in an alley.

“Joe, this is the Senate, motherfucker, and I’m about to do a Julius Caesar on your ass! If I ain’t got a lean and hungry look, I don’t know who does.”

…that’s how they talk trash in Congress…or so I’ve heard.

Now if he could just promise, as president, to THUMP JOE LIEBERMAN EVERY DAY. Sheesh, whatta shvants that Lieberman guy is.

scotterl June 4, 2008 at 4:37 pm

Just letting him know not to worry about that chairmanship and where the minority caucus will be holding their meetings next year.

norbziness June 4, 2008 at 4:37 pm

From Miller’s Crossing:

Mayor/Lieberman: But there’s a way we do things, hallowed by usage and consecrated by time! When we put people on the pad, when Leo was running things, we–

Johnny Caspar/Obama: (furious) Leo ain’t running things! I ain’t innarested in ancient history! I’m running things now!

Mayor: Johnny, no one appreciates that more than I! I can give them jobs! I can give them good jobs! I can even give them jobs where they won’t have to perform any work, where their lack of English will be no impediment! But I cant–

Caspar: What is this, the high hat?!

blogfather June 4, 2008 at 4:37 pm

Obama’s pimp is is strong!

William Tecumseh Sherman June 4, 2008 at 4:38 pm

I hate to make the obvious joke, but did they mention that Obama’s stance was also “wide”?

Naked Bunny with a Whip June 4, 2008 at 4:38 pm

If Obama send a few bucks his way, OJ could drop by Joe’s place. All black people know each other, right?

articulate moran June 4, 2008 at 4:38 pm

Joe: It’s nothing personal, just politics is all.
Obama: It’s not going to be personal when they find my foot up your ass.

Does anyone know how to tell your mother you’re in love with a black man? Sweetladyirony?

The best part: Obama “led him by the hand.” Come hither, little one. I will show you how we play a game called Fuck With Me and Find Out.

Botswana Meat Commission FC June 4, 2008 at 4:41 pm

Obama’s stance was “intimidating,” according to the reporter.

This is actually what it’s like riding in an elevator with Angry Blak Guy.

Someone run over to Daily Kos and check to see how they’re mopping up all the blogspooge.

I wonder what went down at AIPAC.

[re=7082]guerilla-nation[/re]: God, can you imagine a McCain/Lieberman ticket? I’m already getting drowsy at the thought of it. Plus, their combined age would probably equal Abraham’s, which might win the Jewish vote but that’s about it.

Yay!!!! Go Obama go! I hope he ended the conversation by grabbing his crotch and screaming “SUCK IT”, just as I would do if I ever confronted Joe Lieberman.

i’m tot becoming a mccain fan.

Mabalz Eshari June 4, 2008 at 4:53 pm

Obama was giving Joe a little refresher course in Middle East history. He just had to press him up against the wailing wall for a second and remind him that it was the Prophet Muhammad who rode a white horse named Al-BURAQ to Jerusalem.

Sussemilch June 4, 2008 at 4:53 pm

He was just offering Lieberman the irrefusable honor of being Ambassador to Darfur for four years.

Lionel Hutz Esq. June 4, 2008 at 4:54 pm

So this is the sort of world we live in. All of you making fun of an old white man being accosted by a young black hooligan. If you are not safe on the floor of the Senate from these people, where are you safe?

So by Hillary’s standards, In 8 years, does it mean Michelle will be ready to lead the nation from day one?

Tits_LaRue June 4, 2008 at 4:56 pm

That’s right, Liebertard: Obama’s hooked up with the Black Mafia™, The White Mafia™, The Muslim Underground®, The Hoe’s Voting For Bro’s Brigade™ and The Happy Sparkles Unicorn Rainbow Army©… He’s working on securing the Gay Velvet Mafia®, The Actual Real Italian Mafia™©®, The Silver Foxes and The Black Panthers, too, so back the fuck off!

NoWireHangers June 4, 2008 at 4:56 pm

Then Joe pulled off his mask to reveal that he was really Hillary Clinton all along.

Robert Byrd promptly offered to lynch Obama, but when he realized he was being uppity to a Jew, all was forgiven.

Dave J. June 4, 2008 at 5:01 pm

[re=7132]NotUrEvryDayWEzl[/re]: God does not love me enough to bless us with a McCain/Lieberman ticket. That would be simply off the charts on the unintentional hilarity rankings.

eatsshootsleaves June 4, 2008 at 5:05 pm

[re=7149]ronaldpagan[/re]: As a chosen person myself, I can say with some expertise that the only Jews that won’t vote for Obama are ladies over the age of fifty, who are basically all Harriet Christian. But all of my aunts loathe Obama with a fiery passion for beating out Hillary Clinton, who, like all senators from New York, is an honorary Jew in their eyes.

shortsshortsshorts June 4, 2008 at 5:05 pm

Anyway, everyone knows it’s going to be McCain/Crist.

chidem June 4, 2008 at 5:11 pm

I’d bend over for the big O.

Lionel Hutz Esq. June 4, 2008 at 5:13 pm

Second take:

Maybe Joe is Barack’s dealer. That would explain why he was so agitated. “Dude, you got to hook me up!”

Just remember “The Jew is using the black as muscle against you. And you are left there helpless. Well, what are you going to do about it, whitey? Just sit there? Of course not. You, are going to join with us. An organisation of decent, law abiding white folk. Just like you.”

Fred Wertham Jr. June 4, 2008 at 5:17 pm

How long does it take to say “fuck you”? Divide three minutes by that amount of time and that’s how many times Barry said “fuck you” to Holy Joe.

Churchill June 4, 2008 at 5:23 pm

I hope Barry kicks his worthless butt! They should STRIP Liarman of his Senator Committee Chairmanships. RESPECT MUST BE PAID!

Hope this relieves all those naysayers who thought Hopey was a pushover. FIrst he whupped the Clinton machine (both of them) and now he lets Holy Joe that his backstabbing is not appreciated
My favorite part of the exchange is when he looks up at the press and gives them his million watt smile.
How can we arrange for a “meeting” with Limbaugh/Hannity/O’Reilly?

RobPetrified June 4, 2008 at 10:19 pm

Apparently Obama was practicing being Presidential.
When he becomes POTUS, he can go meet with Prince Saud, and instead of
walking hand in hand through the garden of a thousand blow jobs together like Bush II did,
he can use forceful, but not angry, hand gestures, and literally back up the towelheaded
prince against the wall, lean in very close at times, and appear to try to dominate
the conversation, as the two talk over each other in a few instances.
Wouldn’t that be a massive improvement in US-Saudi relartions!

drunkenredinjun June 4, 2008 at 11:00 pm
