Joe "Love Him or Loathe Him" Lieberman

Brought to you by the brilliant folks at (who would like nothing more than to put an end to Lieberman's political career) and brought to my attention by Crooks & Liars, this video is great! Not quite as great as watching last week as Senator Al Franken objected (as the presiding officer, a senator, and you have to think as a progressive) to giving Joe Lieberman another moment of floor time...but close, very close.

A tip of the hat to the senator from Connecticut for killing the first chance we've ever had for meaningful health care reform....

Honestly, has there ever been as vengeful a little gnat as Joe Lieberman? You'd really have to search the archives of history pretty thoroughly to find someone comparable. There are many reasons why Al Gore was defeated in 2000 by a half-witted frat boy like George W. Bush. One of the main reasons was the abysmal choice of running mate Lieberman.

It was obvious during the debate with Dick Cheney during that campaign that comical Joe was a useless drag on the ticket. When Cheney said that his success in the private sector had nothing to do with the government, Lieberman let the statement stand. Cheney made his fortune at Haliburton because of Government contracts! Government had everything to do with it! Did he purposefully sabotage the Gore campaign? Maybe it's pure paranoia on my part but a case could be made that he did.

Say it ain't so, Revoltin' Joe.

In my arrogant opinion (people stopped believing me when I said "In my humble opinion"), Joe L needs to be more jowly. Maybe muppets aren't the best medium for doing Lieberman.

Especially nowadays I think Robin Williams's character in Man of the Year had a great idea. All politicians should be forced to wear suits like racecar drivers showing off their donors. It would help us know who to trust.
