Oh for Christ’s sake: “Sen. John McCain, R-AZ, tells CNN he believes his good friend Joe Lieberman would make a good defense secretary for President Obama, calling him ‘one of the most informed members of the Senate on national security issues and homeland security issues.'” How helpful of him! You know, just the other day one of Sasha’s friends was telling Obama he should appoint her to be the princess of America. Obama will take both of these very fine suggestions down on a piece of paper and put them in a sparkly purple box on his desk labeled “THINGS TO CONSIDER VERY CAREFULLY.”
Yeah, Lieberman probably is not the best choice. It’s not a good idea for the guy running wars to slink off and mope and try to destroy everything that is being done as soon as some small thing doesn’t go his way. Probably better to choose Sasha’s friend for that job. Lieberman would make a good stuck-up princess.
With sadness in his voice, the Arizona Republican called Lieberman “the most decent man that I have ever known in the Senate. He lives his religion and is the most generous spirit.”
“He’s not going to go into retirement, he just wants to do other things, and I’ll miss him every single day,” said McCain.
McCain said that Lieberman told him that he is “tired” after 40 years in public service, and admitted that “he knew he had a tough re-election fight” had he chosen to run for a fifth Senate term.
McCain said he will miss their close friendship and camaraderie in the Senate, but also said Lieberman’s retirement will create a “vacancy on national security issues, the Middle East in particular.”
It would save this whole country a lot of irritation if you two would just hurry up and fuck each other. [CNN]
