If you can’t watch the whole 5+ minutes of Satan’s earthly plastic voodoo doll Joe Lieberman moaning about his extraordinary feats of leadership, just check out 3:00 to 3:45 to hear him (try to) defend his videotaped September interview in which he supported a Medicare buy-in option.

Haven’t seen a politician squirm like this in some time, whining about how, to him — after he “finally got to see that on teevee last night,” the video of his own recent interview — it looked like he was maybe supporting something else, but he doesn’t recall. And uhhh uhhh at the time, see, he didn’t know that the Baucus Bill would include subsidies/affordability credits for people to buy private insurance, an idea that has been a cornerstone of every single draft or white paper or mark or bill that every committee or chamber in Congress has considered over the past year, and the fundamental reason why all versions of this bill have cost hundreds of billions of dollars.

After that was when he decided that a non-profit insurance option for a small but struggling demographic would explode the federal deficit, even though it would be funded by premiums and offer its (~4 million) enlistees the requisite affordability credits, just like every other fucking plan on the exchanges, but without the buffer of arbitrary rate hikes triggered by a need to meet Profit Expectations.

Good god, is this psychotic kamikaze stunt of his *seriously* just a way of getting back at Jane Hamsher and Markos Moulitsas for riding on a bus with Ned Lamont in 2006?

  1. The Dems weren’t sweet to Vinegar Joe. Joe will make them pay.

    Fuck you, you lying cocksucker. And fuck your Big-Pharma-lobbyist wife Hadassah. And fuck your indentured servitude status with Aetna. And fuck you Nutmeg Staters for reelecting this monster.

    Sorry. Couldn’t help myself.

  2. “The Health Care Bill would be moving forward, except for my Joenertia.”

    And apropos of the season, a menorah is the perfect shape to be rammed up this f***tard’s ass, even with only five candles lit.

  3. It’s not just a payback for Lamont, since he had already started doing this shit beforehand, which is why the Lamont challenge started in the first place. It’s for coming in dead last in the 2004 primaries (well, maybe he beat Carol Mosley-Braun).

  4. Basically, what I referred to in the past was what I said to have spoken about healthcare subsidies because reform apparently and that which was said to have been health care to which I was referring when I saw that last night. Keep fucking that chicken, Joe!

  5. [re=478805]Larry McAwful[/re]: Wait… that was Susan Collins, not Olympia Snowe. Sorry about that. All mendacious, faux “moderates” look alike.

  6. Nice that the Senate/White House caved to this goon in less than a day, rather than letting him twist in the wind for a little while. So all this bad press comes to late to make a difference.

  7. I’m a slow learner, but it finally hit me that Joe is now officially washed up in politics, and probably couldn’t even get a good whore-lobbyist job. The health-insurance companies might be promising him a job (“consultant” will do), but, really, are these the kind of people you can trust? What’s left, a Palin book bus-tour thing? At least Palin has a pretty face for her book cover, but what’s he going to do?

  8. Bitterness and hatred are poisons from within that will kill you unless they are expressed.

    Senator Joe Lieberman you are not a nice man. You are not telling the truth and you are not serving your constituents.

    I do not like you.

    (why is my stomach still churning like a 55 gallon drum of cheese curd ejected from a jet powered van on the autobahn?)

  9. Hey, just putting the “nut” back in Nutmeg State, the living, breathing embodiment of all that was wrong with Al Gore as a national candidate. Which asshole consultant pushed his name for veep again?

  10. So the bill — which hasn’t been scored by the CBO yet — is going to increase the deficit? He doesn’t know that. Oh, wait — he doesn’t have to — he thinks the public option — which the CBO scored as saving $150 billion over ten years — is going to increase the deficit too. Joe obviously doesn’t give a rat’s ass about making sense. Fuck you, Joe — just fuck you, you insurance-industry whore, you defender of the insatiably greedy, you falsely pious, transparently swinish prick who gets rich off the suffering of millions of people better but less privileged than yourself. You’ll waste trillions of dollars and thousands of American lives on a lie but won’t lift a goddamn finger to ensure that a poor child can afford to go to the doctor? You have all the moral fortitude of Dick Cheney, the compassion of Karl Rove, the strategic vision of Donald Rumsfeld and the sagacious ability to lead America into the future of George Dubya Bush. Congratulations — you’re everything that’s wrong with this country wrapped into one vile sanctimonious package.

  11. [re=478819]BlueStateLibtard[/re]: When the insurance company lobbyists hired Joe’s wife, they sent an 18-wheeler with a trailer labeled FUCK YOU MONEY to Joe’s house. He’s fine.

  12. Clearly, Sen. Lieberman was just trying to make clear that while he was opposed to the public option, he wan’t opposed to other forms of health care reform. For instance, for the last eight years, he had been suggesting that there be a buy in to Medicare for those 55 or older.

    And he thought this was a wonderful idea, until others thought so too, and then it just wasn’t hip anymore. So now he is supporting a plan to turn everyone into Vampires, since that is the hip thing to today’s kids, and they don’t have health problems.

  13. How is all this being seen in CT? Some of our folks are nutmegs, so might have an idea. I tend to think this is doing him no good and he will not be in the Senate after 2012.

  14. [re=478830]Lionel Hutz Esq.[/re]: But if we are all vampires, what do we eat? We need to keep a breeding population of blood producers. If it were not so revolting, I’d say we should keep the Tea Baggers for that purpose, but even as a starving vampire, I don’t think I’d want to touch one.

  15. [re=478830]Lionel Hutz Esq.[/re]: Basically, any reform is too far for Joe, and he only supported that “compromise” because he didn’t think anyone would go for it. (And that’s way too weak, as a big “fuck you” to all of us who young, not young but not yet middle aged, and middle aged). Really, the only hope for decent reform is in the reconciliation to get around the Senate “moderates” and the ballless Senate leadership.

  16. President Obama just left a circle jerk and shrimping session with the DEMONcratic COCKus, and will be speaking on the teevee about how awesome LIEberman is RIGHT NOW!

  17. Can someone please explain to me why the budget reconciliation proceedure can’t be used for health care reform?

    Under normal circumstances I would try to figure this out for myself but now I’m too busy screaming and kicking things.

  18. I see…..so in 2000……there wasn’t any legislation and the proposed buy-in was part of Gore’s platform……but now, fuck that! I won’t get a cushy job when I can’t run in 2012!

    How the fuck did he get elected when he was this transparent? This same stupid fucking douche who will invoke a the spectre of the deficit for helping others, but gave no thought to it at all when he voted to invade Iraq and spend multiple trillions. Fuck. You. Lieberman.

  19. [re=478849]Extemporanus[/re]: He’s apparently taking a paint peelingly-righteous shit in the men’s room to the left of the podium, but there are anonymous reports that he’s almost done.

  20. [re=478850]x111e7thst[/re]: as I understand it, this will require pulling out the parts of the bill that cannot be part of the reconciliation; this has to be done with the House bill too and this will take too long. Whatever we have can be amended later (see Yglesias). Delay is the danger, even more than Joe. Here is Ezra Klein on it.

  21. There’s people out there who would like nothing more for Xmas than 5 minutes in a locked room with Joe Lieberman and a crow bar.

    I know this, because I’m one of them.

  22. Oh my god I can’t even tell you how totally fucking hilariously bug-eyed Baucus looks staring over Obama’s right shoulder!

    Also, Obama is schooling everyone (Lieberman) on the CBO report vis-a-vis the deficit. He looks/sounds genuinely really cheesed off.

  23. [re=478825]SayItWithWookies[/re]: You’ll waste trillions of dollars and thousands of American lives on a lie but won’t lift a goddamn finger to ensure that a poor child can afford to go to the doctor?

    Just once, just once — I’d like to see one of these dipshit’s Rabbi’s / Ministers publically lay into them about that whole “brother’s keeper” thing. But, I guess dipshits have dipshits for spiritual advisors so they can sleep at night.

  24. [re=478886]Extemporanus[/re]: Also, Obama is schooling everyone (Lieberman) on the CBO report vis-a-vis the deficit. He looks/sounds genuinely really cheesed off.

    Remember how the Repubs used to say “let Reagan be Reagan?” Well isn’t it time for Hopey to let Rahm be Rahm?

  25. [re=478900]McDuff[/re]: All the “White House pressures Reid to cut deal with Lieberman” stories of the last 24 hours—which were denied by the White House, and then sorta undenied—track back to Rahm being the pressurer.

    So, while Rahm would seem to be the best choice for gouging Joe’s eyes out with a caloused half-finger, he could just as well end up tickling his taint with it.

    Maybe if they let Joe light the 900 ft. White House Christ-O-labra, he’ll maybe agree to maybe not kill thousands of Americans, or maybe not, who knows?

  26. So the problem with a better health care reform bill is that it will overwhelm the hospitals with too many sick people.

    Oh, man. We don’t want to treat everyone who’s sick in this country, that would be a catastrophe. I mean, that’s why we’ve been dropping millions from health insurance all these years because it would overwhelm our wonderful health care system, which is the greatest in the world, and it would look just terrible politically. So the answer has always been allow the poor bastards to get sick and die on their own.

    The strange thing here is that Joe still considers himself an man of great conscience, working for the best our country can achieve. What a Putz.

  27. “And he (Lieberman) said he was particularly troubled by the overly enthusiastic reaction to the proposal by some liberals, including Representative Anthony Weiner, Democrat of New York, who champions a fully government-run health care system.

    “Congressman Weiner made a comment that Medicare-buy in is better than a public option, it’s the beginning of a road to single-payer,” Mr. Lieberman said. “Jacob Hacker, who’s a Yale professor who is actually the man who created the public option, said, ‘This is a dream. This is better than a public option. This is a giant step.’” ”

    Ah, so a liberal liked it. IT MUST BE BAD!!!!

  28. [re=478890]McDuff[/re]: Don’t you read the Washington Post? It’s very uncivil and rude to suggest that a politician’s acts might kill people, just because the end result of their policy would be people dying.

  29. Connecticut: The insurance capital of the world, with the Nation’s highest per capita, showing how they are so rich and entitled to the profits of our labor (and black market organ donations) that they can elect an angry muppet to the Senate on their behalf and not even the spirit of John Denver would be allowed to refute him.

    Joe needs to die poor and unloved, in an alley somewhere. I will visit the gravesite often to urinate in remembrance.

  30. [re=478931]Gopherit[/re]: Shit if it was that easy, we should have all supported the Iraq War, hung up photos of W, and bought Palin’s book. And also voted for him in 2006, perhaps he would have dropped out.

  31. Tamron “I want to throw my hotdog down your” Hall just told me that Press Secretary Robert Gibbs will be entering the diseased monkey cage to feed Chip and Chuck and Major and Pip and JoJo and Hoohaw and Reb and Dick shortly.

    I hope there’s enough fling-worthy poo to go around—a diet of tear-flavored Big Gulp cum slushes can result in an 11 on the Bristol Stool Chart.

  32. To answer your question: Why yes, it is.

    And, of course, Jane Hamsher, in her infinite wisdom, is now goin’ after his wife.

    Oy. Yeah, that’ll bring Joe around.

  33. Are 6 million people going to die sooner because of the lack of a buy-in option? If so, that makes Lieberman the Hitler to the Jews’ uninsured! YAY COMPARING LIEBERMAN TO HITLER IS VALID!

  34. Gettin’ tired of holding subhuman Joe responsible for what a sad little shithole of a country we’ve become. What about the other subhumans, the ones who still have (D) after their names? This is what comes of two straight landslide wins for the party that means nothing and honors nothing. From now on anytime any of their posse call, write, or e-mail me for money, their reward shall be a nice little Go Fuck Yourselves Up The Ass.

    2010 . . . 2012 . . . How soon can we go back to blaming everything on the (R) assholes and pretending to believe that things would be better if only the (D) assholes were back in power?

  35. Act Blue has a funding page for whoever wins the CT Senate Demo primary in 2012 and will run against Liberpuss. I just sent them $50. Comm on super ego channel that id into something that doesn’t feel as good, but still and all feels like revenge.

  36. Oddly enough, one Dem said today that Lieberman made it easier to reach a compromise. Apparently there are others besides Stinky McDroopface who didn’t want the public option/Medicare.

  37. [re=478825]SayItWithWookies[/re]: I nominate you, sir, to take the minutes of this meeting. Just write down whateverthehell you want and we’ll all drink instead of talk.

    That’s all I have to say.

  38. I can get by using only one testicle at a time, so I wish there was some way I could loan the spare to Harry Reid, Barack Obama, whomever, so they would CRUSH JOE LIEBERMAN LIKE THE COCKROACH HE IS.

    Bring on the filibusters, you sniveling Republican shits and your corrupt wretched allies across the aisle. Stand up and let Americans see who the liars, bribe-takers and brainless really are. Just try to block healthcare reform. I dare you.

    Thank you. As you were.

  39. Lieberman looks like a jowly old bloodhound. I love when he said over the weekend he was against the bill but he wasn’t sure what was in it. Why don’t they take away his chairmanships? What does he know about everyone else?

  40. MPR had most of this clip on the radio this afternoon. I sent them an e-mail congratulating them on a very fair and even-handed presentation, but suggesting that they point out that Lieberman was a whiney cum rag in future broadcasts.

  41. Seriously, honest question, because I can’t quite figure it out: What would Joementum’s “reform” package actually include, besides the status quo? Or should I say, what does he claim it would include today? I ask the second question mainly because he is just going to keep moving the bar until the bill mandates tax cuts and blowjobs for all health care lobbyists, obviously.

  42. [re=479132]Mad Brahms[/re]: No it will not be status quo, not at all. The insurance companies pick up 50 million new customers on a federal mandate to buy insurance with no price caps, no subsidies. It is a G-D party for the insurance companies. That is reform that big insurance can believe in.

  43. I’m really late to the wake on this health care bill thread and can’t read all the comments because I’m on my way to bed.

    I just stopped by because I’ve run out of disgustingly shitty things to call Leiberwhine and knew the wonkeratti would do my work for me.

    Thanks, guys.[re=479187]Carrie_Okie[/re]:

    Are you in OK, or is that just a name you (for some unfathomable reason) liked? If I knew the name of your band, I would come see you–shit: You’re not Flaming Lips are you?

  44. It needs to be said. Diarrhea, gallons of it, sloshing around inside Joe Lieberfuck’s hideously distended skin, leaking out his pores and spackling the walls with taupe sludge

  45. This all comes back to the denizens of Connecticut they deserve the blame for repeatedly electing this piece of shit. Hang your heads in shame Connecticut.

  46. [re=478961]Not_So_Much[/re]: Obviously a floppy pussy. That looks like two pancakes when viewed from the side. Kind of like Joe’s floppy facial skin.

  47. Joe is one of the many ticks on the ass of society, the filthy parasite. Hell, he’s not even a proper primary parasite. He’s the parasite of a parasite (the health insurance industry).

    Can we just send him back to his dad’s (Satan), already?

  48. [re=479264]FlipOffResearch[/re]: A Lieberman can only be an unredeemably flaccid penis, as floppy pussies are still able to bring joy to they ownerses. Duh.

  49. Watching the Senate cave into the demands of this turd has been educational. So that’s how the system works. One spoiled little gremlin can effecively eviscerate a bill that would have benefitted millions of citizens and, instead, will enrich the industry that coincidentally happens to be centered in the turd’s home state. I think that the corrupt leadership of Pakistan would be impressed at how douchey things are here!
