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

  • elviouslyqueer

    Worst. Metamucil. Commercial. EVER.

    "I love anything Murdoch owns…such as my soul"

  • LionelHutzEsq

    He must really love the Antisemitism Hour Glenn Beck show.

  • LionelHutzEsq

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

  • SayItWithWookies

    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

    Makes sense.

  • V572625694

    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

      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

      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.

    • LetUsBray

      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

    What did Lieberman say when he got to the ball?

    MMMPH MMMPH *gurgle…*

    • Redhead

      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

    Joe nice audition tape. BTW does Fox employ Jews?

    • Beowoof

      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

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

  • Beetagger

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

  • DashboardBuddha

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

    • Beowoof

      Sucking John McCain's cock? Also too.

      • Rarian Rakista

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

        • indecencycmdr

          check please! shots first!

  • Rarian Rakista

    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

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

  • JustPixelz

    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

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

  • indecencycmdr

    Lieberman-Gore 2012!

  • TanzbodenKoenig

    God he ist the worst. The absolute worst

    • ShaveTheWhales

      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.

  • mrblifil

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

  • Negropolis

    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

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

    • JadedDissonance

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