Lieberman Pretty Sure Connecticut Will Elect Him Again

by Jack Stuef

Senator Joe Lieberman says he hasn’t made a decision about seeking re-election in 2012, but he sounds like he might be leaning toward running. During the taping of an interview for this week’s “Face the State with Dennis House,” I asked the 4 term independent if he thinks he could win re-election. The answer: “yes,” while admitting it will be a difficult race.

Sounds like Joementum to us.

So who’s this fucker going to lose to this time, a convicted child embezzler? A chronic cancer-patient rapist? A kitten arsonist? [The Hardfordite via Political Wire]

Hey, Joe: Crack is Wack…

SorosBot January 4, 2011 at 2:21 pm

Based on polls, the voters of Connecticut seem to have a different answer to that question.

JustPixelz January 4, 2011 at 2:59 pm

i am a Connecticut voter now. If Joe-Mentum becomes the Demoncrat nominee, I would vote for the Repubican on the general principle that he/she is at least honest about it. Unless the Repubican is a TP'er, then I'll vote for Bristol Palin because she's a plucky orphan.

Monsieur_Grumpe January 4, 2011 at 2:25 pm

I want Joe to run so I can see him lose. However, if he won I would have to dedicate my life to destroying Connecticut and I really got other things to do like shovel the roof and mow the cat.

horsedreamer_1 January 4, 2011 at 2:26 pm

He's going to run for the same reason Brett Favre keeps coming back: he cannot stand his wife, & she, him.

Hadassah, do us all a favour & boil your man's bunny.

SorosBot January 4, 2011 at 2:37 pm

Great, now I've got the image of Lieberman texting photos of his wang to some Fox News blond stuck in my head.

Fare la Volpe January 4, 2011 at 2:45 pm

some Fox News blond

Steve Doocy?

SexySmurf January 4, 2011 at 2:42 pm

Does this mean Lieberman is going to text a picture of his penis to Lindsey Graham?

elviouslyqueer January 4, 2011 at 3:08 pm

Again?

horsedreamer_1 January 4, 2011 at 3:14 pm

Why? It's not like Lindsay didn't see it a thousand times over on the Straight Talk Express elephant-line.

Graham Cracker January 4, 2011 at 3:15 pm

Oh, please do!!!!

hagajim January 4, 2011 at 2:26 pm

Maybe Linda McMahon can spend more of her money to run against Joe Shmoe….would be interesting and could be headlined Wingnut vs. Walnuts Buddy.

freakishlywrong January 4, 2011 at 2:29 pm

Joe is a political hermaphrodite. He's got a peepee and a vajayjay and is never quite sure which one to vote with.

x111e7thst January 4, 2011 at 2:35 pm

Joe is on a mission from God to make sure we bomb Iran forever. He needs to get re-elected.

Not_So_Much January 4, 2011 at 2:44 pm

Jeebus, wouldn't a cardboard cutout of a generic politician have a better chance and more personality?

angryclownspawn January 4, 2011 at 5:13 pm

YES! Plus it wouldn't lie as often.

Zvi_Bleindmeis January 4, 2011 at 8:39 pm

Maybe if the cardboard cutout had some jumbo jowls photoshopped in. That's where Joe stores his personality.

user-of-owls January 4, 2011 at 2:47 pm

This is a pathetic story;
about a pathetic monster;
on a pathetic side-bar post.

Thus, my pathetic comment.

SayItWithWookies January 4, 2011 at 2:50 pm

Joe Lieberman is fast approaching the occasion when he is rejected by the Joe Lieberman Party.

Radiotherapy January 4, 2011 at 3:01 pm

I'm sure there is a bored wife of a professional wrestling executive they could put up against him.

mumbly_joe January 4, 2011 at 3:09 pm

The problem is, if he doesn't seek re-election, or he doesn't win, then my particular pithy alias and avatar will suddenly be out of a non-paying job. Why won't anyone think of the children Internet forum avatars?!

Even if he runs and loses, at least that would let me forestall the inevitable, for a bit, and maybe come up with something clever to replace it, so here's hoping. Also, recounts and ballot challeges, too.

horsedreamer_1 January 4, 2011 at 3:15 pm

Oh, I don't think Liebermann would be going away. He'd just be sniping from the sidelines, on FOX News or CNN, & working (directly) for AIPAC, et. al.

elviouslyqueer January 4, 2011 at 3:35 pm

Look on the bright side. Given that Joe is and will always be an indecisive shitsack, if he loses, you can always change your alias/avatar to the dancing banana waving a "poop" sign. Voila, correlation intact!

elviouslyqueer January 4, 2011 at 3:13 pm

You go, Joe. And take those tacky pumps with you.

WriteyWriterton January 4, 2011 at 3:24 pm

If I have to listen to his strangled nasal voice for six more years, I'll definitely stop supporting NPR/make my temporary boycott of NPR permanent. (Well, I won't be able to afford to donate anyway once my state legislature finishes "reforming" my public-employee pension out of existence.)

Limeylizzie January 5, 2011 at 12:41 am

Oh how I agree with you, Writey, I have an insane fear of being seated next to him on a plane.

WriteyWriterton January 5, 2011 at 9:41 am

He's like Arnold Stang, except for the fact(s) that he's narcissistic, stupid, and boring. Oh, and he isn't funny, either.

And he proves that, sometimes, Quislings finish first.

iburl January 4, 2011 at 3:54 pm

Remember, it was establishment democrats like nObama and Hillarity who pushed for Lieberman over the democratic nominee. If holy Joe can dupe enough centrist dems again, he's a lock.

nounverb911 January 4, 2011 at 4:02 pm

When Joe and Lindsey both lose in 2012, they finally get married.

zumpie January 4, 2011 at 4:30 pm

Guess poor Ned Lamont's gonna be three time's a charm and finally, actually get himself elected.

LionelHutzEsq January 4, 2011 at 4:58 pm

But, if Lieberman was out of the Senate, who would polish McCain's apple, as it were?

Negropolis January 5, 2011 at 2:54 am

Why, Lindsey Graham, of course. You could always tell he was playing Graham and Lieberman against each other. He gets off on people fighting for his love.

ShaveTheWhales January 4, 2011 at 10:52 pm

Normally, I have no trouble remembering that people elected to office are elected by a majority of those voting, and not by everybody in the relevant electoral area.

Thus, I understand that not everyone in my native state of Wisconsin voted for Tailgunner Joe, nor against Russ Feingold. And that quite a few of us in my adopted state of California voted against St. Ronnie both for Governor and for President.

But seriously, Connecticut, Joe Lie? In Connecticut?

Lost_Teabaggers January 5, 2011 at 2:16 am

Hey shave…are you talking about "America's tailgunner" Joe McCarthy? Because my teabaggin', red-hatin', muslin-bashin', messican-boarder patrolin', double down eatin' with a PBR and a side of chili fries red-blooded real 'Merikan ass hopes so!

transfatz January 4, 2011 at 11:48 pm

Aetna and Colt vote early and often.

mrblifil January 5, 2011 at 12:18 am

Since it's a fair probability that the Senator probably monitors comments to Wonkett posts which name him in the title, I'd like to take this opportunity to tell him to go fuck himself.

Lost_Teabaggers January 5, 2011 at 2:14 am

Yeah Lieberman and using the plausability of your logic I'm pretty sure if given a chance Sofia Vergara would sleep with me.

largefooted January 5, 2011 at 9:30 am

Joe may be a douche bag, but at the same time HE DID champion DADT repeal and Climate.

He may stab us in the back on somethings, but for some reason, on things we chicken out on, he suddenly becomes a strong progressive.

I still want to send him a big bag of dildos for the whole healthcare fuck up though.

horsedreamer_1 January 5, 2011 at 10:28 am

… on things we chicken out on, he suddenly becomes a strong progressive.

It's all part of his contrarian act, to seem "above the fray" & "post-partisan". Or, as David Broder calls it, foreplay.

Negropolis January 5, 2011 at 9:10 pm

It's called covering your ass.

ttommyunger January 5, 2011 at 12:50 pm

Sorry, but every time I see Joe, I can't help wondering: who's Hadassah been fucking all these years. I alway thought she seemed normal and looks semi-hot. You know Joe ain't never had a good fuck in him. I'm guessing Biden on the side. He was alone for a few years and they are neighbors, sort of. Same first name, easy to remember when you're coming. Oh well, that's just how I roll.

WordSaladNation January 6, 2011 at 8:46 pm

I, WordSaladNation, will run against Joe Lieberman in 2012. My platform will be as follows:

1) I will require weekly guided tours of financial industry executives' Greenwich mansions.
2) I will require the U.S. military to be "gay only."
3) Jack and Ken will be hired to "polish" the U.S. Constitution.
4) I will make Babyface's 1989 hit "Whip Appeal" our national anthem.
5) I will not be an asshole douchebag.

It'll be an easy win!
