Hadassah Lieberman Must Divorce Joe Lieberman If She Wishes To Continue Raising Money For Cancer Research

The Progressive Blogs, a feared and highly organized hegemonic force, are very upset with Hadassah Lieberman for continuing to raise money for breast cancer research despite being married to her husband, Joe Lieberman. This is disgraceful, and a mockery to the literally millions of other people who raise money for breast cancer research all the time but manage to do so without being incidentally and totally unrelatedly married to Joe Lieberman.

Hadassah Lieberman’s marriage to Joe Lieberman cannot go unpunished. She will now feel the consequences of this, when she is told to stop her charity work, which, of course, actually benefits other people:

The move to pressure the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation came the same day Lieberman’s husband angered Democrats by announcing that he would not support an expansion of Medicare to cover individuals under the age of 55. Organizers did not point to that decision, instead citing Hadassah Lieberman’s own ties to the health care industry.

Lieberman has worked as a consultant for companies including Pfizer and ALCO.

“We are asking Ellen DeGeneres, Christie Brinkley and other high-profile celebrities who are associated with Komen to demand that no more money raised for cancer treatment be given to Hadassah Lieberman or any other ex-Pharma/Insurance strategists,” said Jane Hamsher, founder of the Firedoglake blog.

This makes sense! Especially the asking-Ellen-Degeneres-to-demand-people-stop-giving-money-for-cancer-treatments part.

    That’s it, make the Jew do our bidding by taking away his precious, precious pennies!

    It worked in Harold and Kumar 2.

  2. Oldskool

    Poor Hadassah, years ago she prolly thought her rat bastard was enough of a handsome and upstanding guy that he’d be a good catch. Maybe she still does. Gak.

  3. SayItWithWookies

    They’ll just have to give their money to some other charity-cum-slush-fund that raises money for cancer research, takes a cut, passes the remainder on to some other charity that raises money for cancer research, takes its cut and so on down the celebrity-charity-slush-fund tree. They’d really like to give the money directly to the groups that do the actual cancer research, but those people aren’t famous and don’t throw red-carpet parties — not to mention that all they talk about is cancer, cancer, cancer. Who wants to hang out with those killjoys?

  4. BeWoot

    Why were these charities giving money to Hadassah in the first place? Has she been running a mastectomy clinic out of their basement? I don’t get it. Or … where can I sign up so I get some of this Ellen DeGeneres, Christie Brinkley money too?

  5. Jim Demintia

    To be fair, if I had to work with Hadassah Lieberman, I’d be looking for any excuse to get her fired too. She’s *annoying*. (Hasn’t anyone else read that post-vice-presidential-run memoir?)

  6. Texan Bulldoggette

    “Hadassah Lieberman’s marriage to Joe Lieberman cannot go unpunished.”

    Isn’t being married to Joe punishment enough?

  7. Gopherit

    Hadassah is a lobbyist at heart, and is therefore hellspawn of the first order. If “progressive” bloggers want to try and get her fired, I have no problem with that. She and her husband have the ethics of sewer rats, given their history of profiting from Joe’s legislation.

  8. HedonismBot

    [re=478043]HedonismBot[/re]: Not to mention alta kocker, mamzer and shmendrick. D
    oes anyone remember how “Macho Man” Dan Savage (teh gay sex columnist) turned “Santorum” into a synonym for “a frothy mix of lube and fecal matter?”
    Free Trucknutz and Freedom Trays to the person who thinks up the most vile and disgusting synonym for “Lieberman” and makes it stick.

  9. Gopherit

    [re=478038]Extemporanus[/re]: I read that as cum lush and wondered whether we were talking about ashley dupre again.

  10. HedonismBot

    [re=478049]HedonismBot[/re]: Then again, maybe a “vile and disgusting synonym for Lieberman” is redundant.

  11. Gopherit

    [re=478049]HedonismBot[/re]: Hmmm…..how about gargling the cum of 30-40 republican senators and insurance exectutives, spraying it all over yourself, cumulating in a gagging fit that results in vomiting up both the cum you swallowed and your last 3 meals in one exuberant bout of nausea. Then….grabbing a spoon.

  12. Lionel Hutz Esq.

    In the end, it will be all right, because when Hadassah says she is against breast cancer, she is really for it.

  13. HedonismBot

    [re=478064]Gopherit[/re]: Eeew! So far, sir (or ma’am, I’ll level with ya – I dunno) you have the win.

  14. Gopherit

    [re=478067]thesheriffisnear[/re]: DOn’t even compare what those two do in the privacy of their own dungeon to …. urp….love.

  15. Come here a minute

    I, too, oppose any efforts by the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Foundation to Kill Breast Cancer to raise money for Hadassah Lieberman.

  16. memzilla

    They don’t make a bag big enough to hold all of the lightly salted poison rat dicks Joe Lieberschmuck should be eating.

    And what’s up with the Red Army stars in the background? Commie rat bastard.

  17. Otto Reimer

    So if you disagree with the Progressives you are blacklisted? Is that how these knuckleheads are being social progressive, by returning the McCarthy-era?

    I mean, Droopy can have his dick peeled and dunk in a glass of rubbing alcohol for all I care, but what does that have to do with the price of his wife’s cancer marches?

    Why are Progressives demanding cure for pancakes?

  18. Hedley Lamar

    [re=478067]thesheriffisnear[/re]: I would be remiss in my duty if I did not tell you that the idea of intercourse – the act of your firm, young body… comingling with… withered flesh… sagging breasts… and flabby b-b-buttocks… makes me want… to vomit.

    From that classic 70′s flick… Hadassah and Joe

  19. gurukalehuru

    Fuck Hadassah Lieberman, and I do mean that in the totally swear wordy, not at all sexual sense. Fuck her and her low-life scum bag of a husband, too.

  20. Gopherit

    [re=478072]HedonismBot[/re]: I’m just doing it because I like the idea of ….urp….smearing….lieberman’s name.

  21. Nigerian Business Executive

    [re=478081]Otto Reimer[/re]: Her close ties to big pharma is what the link is. Of course, I trust anyone who has ever worked as a lobbyist for Pfizer with all my heart. Who wouldn’t? And I see absolutely no contradiction in someone raising money for research their former employers have made sure would be too expensive for most people to afford. None whatsoever. And who cares if her husband is a major force in ensuring that this money she raises goes towards reinforcing the sky-high prices for her former employers, with whom I’m sure she has absolutely no existing ties at all anymore. None! Details! Argle-bargle and flim-flam!

    But you know how these progressives are. They just nitpick and nitpick at the most insignificant points. It’s not like anyone can still donate money to breast cancer research but ensure that none of it passes through Mrs Joe. Can they?

  22. gurukalehuru

    Oh, and the phrase “Progressive Blogs” should read “Jane Hamsher at Firedog Lake.” Who I totally support.

  23. V572625694

    Whatever you do, don’t look at Huffpo today. They’re having an orgy of Lieberman-as-evil-gnome photographs at the top. Not that he isn’t an evil gnome.

  24. HedonismBot

    [re=478080]memzilla[/re]: “They don’t make a bag big enough to hold all of the lightly salted poison rat dicks Joe Lieberschmuck should be eating.”
    Senator Lieberman may be many things, but no one’s ever accused him of being a cannibal.

  25. populucious

    Ok so next time Komen for the Cure calls me asking for a donation I will, in my most enraged, aggrieved tone of voice ask “Well, that depends…IS THIS HADASSAH LIEBERMAN????” and ONLY if they assure me that they are NOT Hadassah Lieberman will I agree to give them my $10.

  26. memzilla

    [re=478102]HedonismBot[/re]: And yet, if someone could tell me who to write the check to, I would gladly pay for research into breeding a more giant, more wooly, more lightly salted, more poison-holding rat, just to be able to search for the company which would manufacture the much larger bag to hold their dicks for delivery to Sen. Lieberschmuck.

  27. weejee

    Looks like the cabal chorus is making having a Lieberman as your corporate icon about as cool as having Tiger Woods.

  28. Katydid

    [re=478086]Jim89048[/re]: Cui bono?

    Snowbilly’s getting $200,000 to spew talking points at a cancer fundraiser. But she doesn’t know yet that the hospital gleefully provides free abortions, whether the mother wants one or not. Or does she? (wink, wink).

    Hadassah gets paid to be a breast cancer spokesmodel. Totally coincidentally, Pfizer makes cancer drugs. Pfizer is a suckass company to work for, btw.

    Our $2 billion annual government food aid is spent buying surplus US food, which has already been highly subsidized, and the rest of the “aid” is spent hauling the food halfway across the world, where it is sold to the starving people at a reduced rate, thereby fucking up the local agri-economy but good, leaving the hungry not much better off, and many say much worse. But ConAgra profits.

    Merry Fucking Christmas.

  29. Canmon (the Inadequate)

    Well, Christie Brinkley was married to that pervert (not Billy Joel, the other one) and Ellen Degeneres was married to Anne Heche so they can sympathize with embarrasing spouses. Then again, Joementum is his own special category of douche.

    [re=478117]Katydid[/re]: He’s either an Irish musician and singer with political pretensions or a dead congressman, formerly a protege of Phil Spector, with a deadly attraction to trees.

  31. Jukesgrrl

    I think it would be more accurate to say Joe Lieberman’s marriage to Hadassah cannot go unpunished. Before he hooked up with Lady Macbeth, he was just a regular tool of the industries headquartered in his state. Big deal. When he gave conflict of interest a new meaning by marrying her, he became a danger to the health and welfare of everyone in the entire nation. I agree with my homeboy Howie Fineman who says that Lieberman’s obstreperous actions related to healthcare reform have NOTHING to do with the public option, and everything to do with how badly the Lieberpersons want to screw the Democratic Party. So we’re all being sent to the Death Panel just because they still have their panties in a wad over Ned Lamont and live to punish all who supported him.

    Couldn’t we just hack her breasts off and leave it at that? She would have done her bit to prevent breast cancer, and could move right back into pharma lobbying.

  35. DustBowlBlues

    [re=478142]Jukesgrrl[/re]: I completely agree with everything you said, and not just because you used a big word like obstreperous. I was groaning with a friend over Liberfuck today and told her that I think this whole thing is about nothing but punishing the Democratic activists who wanted to fire his ass. Why does this douche have a minute of seniority left in his account?

    Remember Specter? He was promised the moon to switch parties. But he announced “I’m a Democrat,” in one breath and “Fuck Labor” in the next. A week later, Andy Stern had an afternoon meeting with him. The next day, the Democratic caucus had a late night meeting and stripped Arlen of his seniority. And the next day, he had a classic come-to-Jesus moment.

    Does the supposedly tough-guy Rahm realize how much of the Obama administration’s wimpiness the lib/progressives would forgive if they would just fuck Droopy D? Fuck him in the ass so hard that he can’t sit down for a month?

    Please, Democrats, just grow a pair. I’m ashamed to be in the party of masochism. You are such g**dammed wimps. (The asterisk in honor of the observation of the birth of Jeebus.

    WTF? I clicked on “my” wonkette and a great big green picture covered my screen. Creeping corporism is everywhere. No wonder the Lieberasses control the world.

    I’m walking the deserted sad streets of Hartford this very minute and wondering what would make me happy again.Maybe I should mail Sen.Lieberman some rant with a local postmark before I head home. I know I will not be happy again until I see him his wife and all the crooked pols that CT produces run out of state. Rowland went to prison, then there is the guy from Bridgeport and of course the mayor of Hartford who is on his way to prison but is still the Mayor and since the Hartford Courant is in bankruptcy there is no one to ask him to quit being mayor and no criminal has asked for his place just yet. So what ever on Lieberman’s crook of a wife. They should get rid of her she is making money off of cancer somehow. You betcha’.
