Can’t wait until he “thanks” President Obama by starting some bullshit investigation of the White House in 2009.

The Dems never learn, do they?

zkemeny November 18, 2008 at 12:32 pm

Its the Cheney hunting accident all over again. Joe Lieberman shoots the Democrats in the face, and the Democrats apologize for blocking his shot.

queeraselvis v 2.0 November 18, 2008 at 12:33 pm

Not to worry. One more bone-headed move by Joe Schmoe and Rahm E. will have someone stick his nuts in a pirahna tank.

shortsshortsshorts November 18, 2008 at 12:33 pm

Yoseph Liebermoff is not Governmental, has never been known for his Affairs, and is certainly not a Committee. I call bullshit. Obviously Charlie Christ would have been the better choice, even though he is not a Senator and is not the ruling party. Aww fuck it. The picture makes me inclined to go with Dumbo.

Yes. Dumbo should lead the Governmental Affairs Committee.

bago November 18, 2008 at 12:33 pm

Joe the rat?

shortsshortsshorts November 18, 2008 at 12:33 pm

Oh wait, that’s a rat. FUCK. Like Liebermoff. hahaha I get it WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?

ManchuCandidate November 18, 2008 at 12:34 pm

I guess the Demrats needed somebody to play Judas in this real life production of Preznit Barry Obama, Superstar.

blinky_twinkie November 18, 2008 at 12:35 pm

I can’t wait to see the pics this hag has of the Democratic leadership inflagrante delicto. Jeebus…

magic titty November 18, 2008 at 12:35 pm

Fuck Joe Lieberman. And I’m not happy with Forgiving Barry either.
Maybe Joe will have to make Barack and Michelle brunch every Sunday or something.

dano November 18, 2008 at 12:35 pm

They’ll probably just freeze him out every time he walks in the room “high school girl style”.

Serolf Divad November 18, 2008 at 12:35 pm

Seriously, and this is the guy who Obama campaigned for when he lost his primary challenge in 2006.

Count me as one who would have rather seen an Obama Corleone than an Obama of Nazareth this time ’round.

Palin-Plumber2012 November 18, 2008 at 12:37 pm

They can take this back in 2010 and find a good Democrat for 2012 to send Joe to the gas chamber of retirement, right?

NoWireHangers November 18, 2008 at 12:37 pm

This Dirty Rat Bastard Joe Lieberman may yet be of use to us. Let’s wait and see how this all plays out. He can always be killed later.

AxmxZ November 18, 2008 at 12:38 pm

It’s like with Hilldog for SoS – keep your friends close, and your enemies chairing their own little roosts. Because it’s better to have them with you than against you.

FMA November 18, 2008 at 12:39 pm

[re=179693]Serolf Divad[/re]: Don’t worry. In the near future, Joey will wake up in a Nevada whorehouse with a dead hooker and Obama will send Rahm to clean things up and remind Joey that “Barack Obama helps his friends” as long as they know how to repay a favor.

Joe gets the “automatic mute response” once reserved for W and Bay. (And Sarah.)

glamourdammerung November 18, 2008 at 12:41 pm

I am unsure who I am more annoyed with, Lieberman for being a fuckwit or the Senate Democrats for enabling it. Actually, I am sure, but I try to avoid calling Harry Reid a pussy more than three times a day.

Iggy Plop November 18, 2008 at 12:42 pm

O.k. fine, let the little baby keep his fucking committee. But can’t the Dems contrive some ritual humiliation for him? Chain him prone to the Capitol steps for a day, and anybody who wants can come up and kick him in the gonads? That would redistribute some karma.

ella November 18, 2008 at 12:42 pm

So he’s up for re-election in 2012. I wonder who this lucky slimeball will support for president then?

TGY November 18, 2008 at 12:42 pm

Barry *does* need somebody to test hand buzzers and ‘whoopee’ cushions on.

loquaciousmusic November 18, 2008 at 12:44 pm

That’s all right. We’ll vote him out in ’12.

monty November 18, 2008 at 12:46 pm

[re=179714]Iggy Plop[/re]: or pee on him, just to humble him. a little humiliation goes a long way.

Aurelio November 18, 2008 at 12:46 pm

The Dems are so close to a filibuster-proof majority that they will even kiss the shriveled old ass of Holy Joe in the hope that, once in a while, he may actually be their 60th vote. And Holy Joe will undoubtedly demand further blackmail payments.

Toomush Infermashun November 18, 2008 at 12:46 pm

Calm down – Barry did say he was going to cross the aisle….there’s not much over there…this is going to be like the dormouse in the teapot…

[re=179693]Serolf Divad[/re]: I still think this is all a set up and at some point, Obama’s going to suggest Joe go on a little fishing trip.

kimbongil November 18, 2008 at 12:51 pm

this is his last go round and will be gone in 2012, CTers have had it with his embarrassments and will not make the same mistake again. the worst part about toads like Lieberman, is that they stick around the DC landscape and profit handsomely on their name alone. that is unless he is convicted of something or falls into a little boys rear end on videotape

in the meantime, he will be of no use to the Democrats, just a resentful little prick who will take pleasure in jamming things up so people will have to kiss his ring

Mustang November 18, 2008 at 12:56 pm

That’s a really flattering picture of Joe. Too bad he was caught in an awkward moment getting ready to hump that building.

Anonymous Office Zombie November 18, 2008 at 1:00 pm

Yeah, and once upon a time Senator Brutus betrayed his friend Caesar and joined Caesar’s enemy Pompey in a civil war against him, and after Caesar won, he restored Brutus to the Senate with no hard feelings. And we all know how that one turned out.

I’d beware the Ides of March this year, if I were NoBama.

eatsshootsleaves November 18, 2008 at 1:02 pm

Don’t blame Barry, though he is a pussy. Blame Democrats in general. They are all pussies. And it’s the fault of our pussyfooted legislative body, not our president-elect, who basically only said that he had no opinion on it.

Carrie_Okie November 18, 2008 at 1:05 pm

You know what? Fuck Harry Reid too. With a meat hook.

Min November 18, 2008 at 1:16 pm

Did anyone bother to check the Congressional Lost and Found? Someone might have found the Democrats’ balls and turned them in.

S.Luggo November 18, 2008 at 1:21 pm

No doubt Lieberperson will ascribe this outcome to Hopey’s inexperience.

Miller November 18, 2008 at 1:22 pm

I hope Obama has a good shocked face worked up for 2 seconds after Lieberman gets his first opportunity to spit in the face of all his “friends”. I bet Obama will look so shocked and hurt, but really, he should have known better. Great job Hopey, I’m sure Joe appreciates your magnanimous gesture.

Ted Perino November 18, 2008 at 1:28 pm

Let’s revisit this toward the end of January or February.

“Can you get me off the hook, Rahm? For old times’ sake?”

Destonio November 18, 2008 at 1:29 pm

Can’t believe they’re rewarding that gutter-dwelling whore.

sati demise November 18, 2008 at 1:33 pm

Still have hope that Obama will close down ‘Homeland Security’ in the interest of government competence. There needs to be a complete revision of this department and the Patriot act.

[re=179740]kimbongil[/re]: Promise? You Conneticut Dems need to kick this fuc*er out of office since Harry Reed cannot seem to do his job. Then, how do we get rid of limp d*ck Reed?

ProfessorJukes November 18, 2008 at 1:44 pm

Joe will NOT get re-elected in CT. He’s already been forced to move out of his hometown of New Haven and live in Stamford, which totally sucks.

[re=179704]FMA[/re]: I was going to go with a Hyman Roth/Frankie-Five-Angels riff… “It was Roth who tried to have me killed. If Hyman Roth sees that I interceded with you in the Rosato Brothers’
favor, he’ll think his relationship with me is still sound. You make the peace with the Rosato Brothers on their terms. Let the word out that I forced you …and when the time is right, I’ll take my revenge.”

Lieberman is the Elmer Fudd of Senate politics.

I mean how twatish does Liebergit look right now? He had to beg to keep hold of his pweshious wittle chaiwmanship.

Thwank wu Bawwack!

Barry will get Lieberman back. He’ll make Ned Lamont the Secretary of Homeland Security.

King of Pants November 18, 2008 at 2:17 pm

People, let’s gain some perspective here. True, Lieberman is a vain little twat with an outsized and unwarranted sense of self-importance, and yes he went on TV and said awful things about Dear Leader, but really, what is he? A reliable vote on legislation that matters to the Democrats, a possible 60th vote on cloture, and a spaceholder for four years. Ousting him now goes against the core Obama message of changehopelolfrenemies. (One can question the value of Obama relentlessly believing his own BS to this degree, but that’s a larger question.)

Besides, what’s Lieberman going to do? Subpoena Obama? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH *cough wheeze* Oh, ungrateful little Joe will try and shiv Obama? AHAAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Joe’s easily played. Flatter him a little, say the right words and he’ll do anything you want. Besides, Obama owns him. This was all about a power play. Sure, Joe could go caucus with the Republicans — but he’d still lose his chairmanship. Joe gains nothing by breaking away except wallowing in his own vanity. And Obama’s game was simple: of course you get to keep your seniority, Joe, because you have no other choice.

So yeah, we might all think he’s a shit-swilling rat, but a very smart move by Obama, or my name’s not Dick Morris. Wait, what?

MarieDeGournay November 18, 2008 at 2:20 pm

Son of a bitch!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Borat November 18, 2008 at 2:23 pm

What is Connecticut saying about this guy? Are they all luv for him or what? When’s he up for election and can we find someone clean and articulate to run?

randomsausage November 18, 2008 at 2:23 pm

[re=179870]gjdodger[/re]: Actually it would have been better to make LieberTwat Secretary of Homeland Security and then appoint Sen Casey to the chairmanship! He’d oversee his sorry ass out of national politics….

Capitol Hillbilly November 18, 2008 at 2:28 pm

I hope Zell Miller gets a nice appointment, too.

TGY November 18, 2008 at 2:48 pm

Think of Joe Lieberman as Barry’s trusted advisor. When he has a question, he asks Lieberman then does the complete opposite. Can’t lose. Like the Magic 8-ball, only not.

bitchincamaro November 18, 2008 at 2:53 pm

[re=179696]NoWireHangers[/re]: Also, if I vent my spleen on this vermin any more, I’ll be spleenless. Can’t afford that.

purefog November 18, 2008 at 3:21 pm

Shouldn’t that be “pusbag”? Or is there some feline angle I am missing here?

Senile Agitation November 18, 2008 at 3:51 pm

Give Hillary’s vacated “I ran for President and all I got is this shitty SoS post” senate seat to Ned Lamont. Choke on a dick, Joe.

pepe November 18, 2008 at 4:20 pm

OK, now it’s time to primary Harry Reid.

BaxterJones November 18, 2008 at 4:48 pm

What are the chances Lieberman wins reelection next round?

John McDouche 08 November 18, 2008 at 10:55 pm

Put a big clitoris on the forheads of all the senate democrats that allowed this. Bunch of complete pussies.
