Home / General / Buh-Bye



I figured that his stunningly good work on DADT repeal meant that he was going to seek the Democratic nomination, but Holy Joe is out after this term.

    So, you think the Republicans who elected him 4 years ago won’t do it again? Color me astonished.

    Did a little happy dance when I saw that. The world is a much better place with Joe LIEberman out of the Senate. Probably has a cushy lobbyist gig lined up with one of the more repulsive Republican shops.

  • What’s the mystery?

    He accomplished all his Rethug goals as a Dim.

    He’s out of here.

    And in to the moolah.

    Every NeoCons fervent XMAS wish.

    I’m genuinely surprised that the DADT move had zero political motive. If nothing else, the warm response it engendered from Dem/liberal activists seemed certain to push him towards running again, but evidently not.

    Which is ideal, because now I get to have warm feelings about the one decent thing he’s done in the past 10+ years AND not have to hear his fucking frogvoice again after 2012.

  • There is no Joe in Mudville.

    Sure, it might be possible to elect him as a Republican, but then he’d have to stab Democrats from the front, and where’s the fun in that?

    I’m going to miss the way I could read a Lieberman quote, and hear his constipated, mmmmnnnnweeeehhhhhhh droopy-dog voice saying the words.

  • Maybe he did the DADT because he thought it was the right thing to do (no doubt combined with a desire to look good in the history books)? Acknowledging that doesn’t mean you have to like the guy or prefer him to hypothetical Senator Lamont.
