Well why not when its so obvious that Fox News has Joe-mentum.

elviouslyqueer November 30, 2010 at 5:04 pm

Worst. Metamucil. Commercial. EVER.

He must really love the Antisemitism Hour Glenn Beck show.

LionelHutzEsq November 30, 2010 at 5:15 pm

Now, now, don't judge Lieberman too harshly, he has always had a soft spot for fiction.

SayItWithWookies November 30, 2010 at 5:20 pm

Way to go Joe — and remember, you can't spell "slavishly obedient corporate whore" without i-n-t-e-g-r-i-t-y.

emmelemm November 30, 2010 at 5:20 pm

Makes sense.

Is it correct to blame Al Gore for Lieberman the same way we blame Panamanian strongman Juan McCain for the Alaskunt? Because Droopy Joe was a bit of a back-bencher until he debated Cheney, was he not? (Remember that? People said, "What a pair of fine gentlemen they are! Pity they're not the presidential candidates." Ew.)

Beowoof November 30, 2010 at 7:19 pm

Joe, looked dumber than dog shit when he debated Cheney. And he has gone on to establish that credential with each passing day he serves in the Senate.

ShaveTheWhales December 1, 2010 at 1:10 am

I hate to say it, but you have part of a point. Al's pick of Joe was analogous to Walnetto's pick of the TwitterTwat — to shore up a perceived weakness (Al — national security; Juan — insufficient crazy). As an aside, that seemed weird to me in 2000. Algore was, after all, an actual active-duty veteran, albeit non-combat. But, there were lots of things about that campaign that seemed weird to me. I've occasionally thought that, at heart, Al didn't really want to win. It's really a pretty shitty job for a thoughtful person.

Anyhow, there's that. However, J-Lie was already a pretty strongly established Senator by 2000, with, you know, actual positions and some understanding of issues. That is why he got the VP nod. He's a kneejerk Israel and insurance company shill, but at least we understand that.

And, I don't personally recall anybody saying that, but that may have been partly due to the fact that every time they showed a picture of Cheney I saw Cthulhu.

I love Al Gore, but I regard that as his greatest and most lasting blunder. In the short term, it pissed off enough people who then voted for Nader that it allowed to election to be close enough to steal. And in the long term, it did indeed give Liebershit a prominence her never, ever would have had otherwise.

JadedDissonance November 30, 2010 at 5:36 pm

What did Lieberman say when he got to the ball?

MMMPH MMMPH *gurgle…*

Redhead November 30, 2010 at 10:08 pm

Well have YOU ever tried talking around a ball gag? Not easy, even when you DON'T look (and sound) like droopy dog under normal circumstances.

nounverb911 November 30, 2010 at 5:55 pm

Joe nice audition tape. BTW does Fox employ Jews?

Beowoof November 30, 2010 at 7:21 pm

Maybe he will become a Jew for Jesus. And the rest of us Jews can feel liberated from his obtuse existence as a member of the chosen people.

assistantatlas December 1, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Um, hello. It IS a media company, so obviously they have to have some Jews to control it. Duh.

Beetagger November 30, 2010 at 6:14 pm

Well, in all fairness, Joe is in their age demographic. Near dead.

DashboardBuddha November 30, 2010 at 6:19 pm

I think we now know why his jaws are so droopy.

Beowoof November 30, 2010 at 7:21 pm

Sucking John McCain's cock? Also too.

Rarian Rakista November 30, 2010 at 7:30 pm

I'm thinking more sucking McCain's man teets while he rides him.

indecencycmdr November 30, 2010 at 9:41 pm

check please! shots first!

Rarian Rakista November 30, 2010 at 7:28 pm

If that is true, I sincerely hope Rupert Murdoch ate a whole deep fried turkey, polished it off with oil-packed Brie and quenched his thirst with copious amounts of apple cider.

Welcome to flavor country Lieberman, welcome to flavor country.

Negropolis December 1, 2010 at 1:44 am

I hope he ate some bacon so maybe Joe would force himself to pull out.

JustPixelz November 30, 2010 at 8:30 pm

I now live in Connecticut if there's anyone the wonketteers suggest I vote against in our next Senate election. Perhaps that "Joe the Dumber" fella.

ShaveTheWhales December 1, 2010 at 1:11 am

I do think that you should attack him. With votes, with votes.

indecencycmdr November 30, 2010 at 9:41 pm

Lieberman-Gore 2012!

TanzbodenKoenig November 30, 2010 at 10:25 pm

God he ist the worst. The absolute worst

ShaveTheWhales December 1, 2010 at 1:14 am

I have not watched the clip, but I will nevertheless mention:

Steve King
Jim Inhofe
Tom Coburn
Jon Kyl
Dave Vitter
Saxby Chambliss

as candidates for even more absolute worst.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Fox gave the world Sore Loserman, didn't they?

Negropolis December 1, 2010 at 1:55 am

Hey, Nutmeggers. How do you think Blumenthal will stack up against Dodd? Is this an improvement, a simple hold of a seat, a downgrade? I have a hard time reading Bloomy.

mrpuma2u December 1, 2010 at 9:33 am

Does Joe Lieberman do anything but rhetorically fellate his corporate masters anymore? What a tool.

JadedDissonance December 1, 2010 at 10:13 am

I like your ironic use of the word "rhetorical."
