Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

    …and the punchline is: “the Aristocrats!”

  • ManchuCandidate

    I’m hoping that Hopey Unicorn unleashes his fists of fury on that motherfucking chickenhawk.

  • NoWireHangers

    Does he realize that come January, Barry will be President, we’ll have the seats we need to hold the majority, and he will be gleefully tarred and feathered?

  • nbawriter

    Flattery will get you nowhere … which is what makes flattery the equivalent of Joe Lieberman’s Middle East policy.

  • JeffGoldblum

    That’s anti-semetic, dudes. Not cool.

  • meanfag

    to think that I have to waste my inaugural comment on a turd like Lieberman. Oh well.

  • The Neoskeptic

    all i can think of is Sean Connery in “Entrapment” saying, “you’ve been playing both shides!”

  • 4tehlulz

    You’re not going to be McCain’s VP, Joe. STFU and prepare for the assfucking Obama’s going to give you in January.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    Thank you Connecticut… particularly loquiciousmusic.


  • slithytoves

    Jim- That’s a rather understated description.

  • A drifter

    Joe Lieberman = the dad from ALF.

  • RuperttheBear
  • SayItWithWookies

    He’s right — the surge worked! Okay, either that or the insurgents are patiently re-arming themselves and all hell’s gonna break loose in a few weeks. But what would be the precedent for that?

  • MrAgro

    [re=36573]A drifter[/re]: Holy shit. You’re right. Does this mean Lieberman soon will be busted for doing lines with Lindsay Graham in the Capitol men’s room?

  • weirdiowasculpture

    Does the Center for U.S. Global Engagement support gay marriage or just gay engagement? ‘Cause that would kinda tie all these stories together. Just saying . . .

  • scotterl

    [re=36543]NoWireHangers[/re]: And then drawn and quartered by draft horses of good New England stock.

  • Fear of a Black Reagan

    [re=36605]MrAgro[/re]: Does “lines” mean “buttsecks”? Because ol’ Lindsay is gayer than a handbug full of…um, than a pink rainbow-covered…um…uh, GAYER THAN LARRY CRAIG!!!

  • snig

    I’ll get a note from my Rabbi saying it’s ok to hate Lieberman, that should take the curse off of it. Any Holy Roller of any faith who delights in war and a policy torture deserves harsh rhetoric at the very least.

  • Serolf Divad


    How can you hate a man who’s OK with the idea that the Holocaust was just God’s eviction notice to the Jews?

  • kellygrrrl

    2012 is too long to wait
    the people of CT need to get this guy recalled immediately

    here in CA DiFi is bad enough, but nothing compared to LiarCon
    we are working with the Courage Campaign to get DiFi, at least, censured

    Joe needs to GO!!!

  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=36547]JeffGoldblum[/re]: Racist.

  • MrAgro

    [re=36616]Fear of a Black Reagan[/re]: Well I did mention the men’s room.

  • shortsshortsshorts
  • loquaciousmusic

    [re=36554]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Honey, I voted for Ned Lamont. Hell, I worked on his campaign. My truck nutz are free and clear.

  • loquaciousmusic

    [re=36573]A drifter[/re]: Actually, I’d say that Joe Lieberman = ALF itself.


    I kind of wish that Joe Lieberman was a cat at that ALF, you know, would eat him.

  • JeffGoldblum

    [re=36751]loquaciousmusic[/re]: “This is what you’ll need to turn the nutz 90 degrees when you mount them. I think you should get one to give you the greatest mounting flexibility”

    Joe Lieberman = 9/11? Discuss.

  • liquiddaddy

    I think they were nothing as exotic as space turds; just regular old turds, really.

    Holy Joe’s just about to become as popular as Zell Miller.

  • AxmxZ

    Joe needs another little heart-to-heart from Barry. Preferably with less intimidating leaning and more punching this time.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=36751]loquaciousmusic[/re]: No. It’s all YOUR FAULT. In fact, I bet you ARE Joe Lieberman……
    Damn you, you elitist bastard.
    Nice glasses though.

  • Borat

    I heard Joe was married a couple times and was not gay. Now I hear he’s spending all his time hangin out with Republican males and likes ridin the ‘straight talk express’. Now I’m deeply suspicious? Do you think the MC took Joe over to the other team yet? (I forgot if that bus has a rollaway bed or just laz-y-boy lounge chairs which are better for BJs in my experience)

  • Borat

    [re=36744]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: nice. i didn’t know there was a big sale on Crome Plated Red color Truck Nutz. How can they be on sale and still be more expensive than regular trucknutz? I’m repulsed, but at the same time strangely hypnotised?

  • ducandy

    Ever notice how Lieberman looks a little like The Joker in the last Batman flick, only, um, a little cleaned-up?
