  • Uncle Al

    Joe isn’t a prick, he’s a cunt.

  • Noodle Salad

    Jesse Jackson made him an “independent” after Joementum talked down to black people (and white people, and brown, red, and yellow people).

  • 4tehlulz

    Even the AP can’t help but print the truth occasionally.

    Did Ron Fournier execute however let this through?

  • EnBuenOra

    Good thing to know the wire services retain some degree of journalistic capability.

  • accidental_tourist

    I don’t know what took me so damned long to realize this:

    1) America would rather eat nails than elect another Republican right now.

    2) The only other choice is, well, black.

    3) With Lieberman and McCain you get – WHITE DEMOCRATS! It’s win/win for the morans!

    (Don’t shoot the messenger.)

  • BTY

    The AP definitely nailed that one.

    And is that damned talking advertisement starting to get on anyone else’s nerves?

  • 4tehlulz

    *whoever

  • Darehead

    Pastor Hagee is behind this, since he thinks Lieberman is the anti-Christ.

    Joe Lieberman should run for president with his old t.v. co-star Alf as his v.p.

    Alf could bring in the female vote because he liked to eat pussy
    more than Ellen Degeneres.

    I’m just sayin……..

  • HollowBrain

    You know they haven’t changed it yet….

  • sarcasticusername

    that’s the finest piece of journalism the AP has put out in ages.

  • loquaciousmusic

    Hey guys, I forgot to tell you — I got a job with the A.P.!

  • TGY

    Freudian prose.

  • The Incomparable Tiny Valdez

    I agree that Joe should be McCains prick as well.

  • Darehead

    Joe on Joe would be good entertainment for the veep-bates.

  • loudmouthredhead

    [re=62746]Darehead[/re]: No, see, it couldn’t be anyone in the religious (nutbar) community, since the Antichrist would be welcomed as the start of Armageddon and Jeebus’ eventual return. Even he (she?) would be more loved than Lieberman.

  • The Real JR Revisted

    The 11 year old in me can only process one thing in response to this: hehehehehe…

  • WadISay

    Haha, AP misspelled “douchebag.”

  • Strictly for the Tardcore

    [re=62742]accidental_tourist[/re]: If Leiberman’s a Democrat, then I’m a Republican. (PROTIP: I’m not.)

    Having said that, if a McCain/Leiberman ticket wins the election, I’m moving to Canada.

  • glamourdammerung

    [re=62787]The Incomparable Tiny Valdez[/re]: I thought McCain had his captors in Hanoi for that.

    FIVE AND A HALF YEARS!

  • 4tehlulz

    [re=62815]Strictly for the Tardcore[/re]: Canada is a member of NATO, so it would still sustain a nuclear attack from Russia. You may want to consider someplace more out of the way, like Peru.

  • Mahousu

    So I notice nobody has asked for n00d pix of the Associated Press yet.

    No, I’m not asking, either.

  • Mr Blifil

    Wonkette intern? Is there a stipend? All-the-shit-you-can-eat? Put on a blindfold while Ken Layne plays “Pin the Cigar on the Orifice?”

  • Darehead

    [re=62796]loudmouthredhead[/re]: You think too logically, my friend. Fundies don’t know logic, only dogma and catma! See, even when they knowz that the Armageddon is a-comin’, they won’t be raptured unless they actively fight against “it” — “it” which is the anti-Christ and all the world government stuff. So some of them think any kind of internationalist like McCain, L-man, Bushes, Obama etc. are all in the same global bed.

    [re=62845]Mahousu[/re]: I’d settle for some nude fonts and print peekaboo and opportunities to em-bed photos, links etc.

  • Harvey Birdman

    [re=62782]loquaciousmusic[/re]: Congrats! Please find a way to fit a “Peter Pumpkinhead” reference into an Obama story.

  • Gopherit v2.0

    I’ll be looking to the AP for a continuance in this accuracy in reporting.

  • V572625694

    [re=62844]4tehlulz[/re]: Chimpy’s going to Paraguay. You wouldn’t want to go anywhere near him after he quits, but still: these people know things.

  • dano

    I hope McCain does pick little Joey Lieberman as his running mate. Lieberman could very well have the singular distinction of destroying two presidential bids in one short decade. And from opposite sides of the aisle no less!

  • gjdodger

    [re=62916]dano[/re]: I hope he does, too. Because if he doesn’t, you know how much longer we’ll have to deal with the little prick?

    FOUR AND A HALF YEARS, ALAN!
    FOUR AND A HALF YEARS!

  • S.Luggo

    [re=62740]EnBuenOra[/re]: The AP fact checker deserves a raise.

  • donner_froh

    [re=62935]S.Luggo[/re]: They hired one?

  • AxmxZ

    Breaking: Pickler picks a peck of pickled pricks! More at eleven.

  • Strictly for the Tardcore

    [re=62844]4tehlulz[/re]: I live next door to the biggest ICBM installation in the United States. The chance of getting cancer from fallout after nuking Ontario is an IMPROVEMENT.

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    At least it is circumcised vice presidential prick.

  • Oscar Folsom Cleveland

    If Joe’s a prick, what’s that make Evan Bayh?

  • Miller

    If a politician accidentally says the truth it’s called a gaffe. What’s it when the AP accidentally tells the truth? A factcident?

  • sezme

    [re=62785]TGY[/re]: Not a Freudian slip. No, sometimes a prick is just a prick.

  • glamourdammerung

    [re=62916]dano[/re]: That actually would be kind of neat.

    He could be like the albatross around the neck.

  • Jingo

    Wait. If Lieberman is a prick, wouldn’t those saggy jowls be foreskin? I thought he was Jewish!
