Out With A Whimper

It seems that another ol’ Washington cocktailhag is finally heading for Palm Springs, leaving my people with less representation than ever in the US Senate.  Olympia Snowe, the three-term Maine Senator who has lately earned the dubious honor of being one of the few sane Republicans, a distinction Jon Sewart likened to being “the thinnest [...]

Don’t Let The Door Hit You, Holy Joe

To no one’s surprise, Holy Joe Lieberman’s “Joementum”  has turned out, once and for all, to be a wet firecracker; the universally despised “Independent” has, somewhat belatedly, decided to pull the curtain on his embarrassing “career,” by, naturally, leaking the news of his retirement while denying it.  Of course, few of his constituents will miss [...]

From Russia With Love

Few politicians are as consistently revolting as Joe Lieberman, but this little display really takes the cake.  Notice how the loathsome little Likudnik fumbles over the patently ridiculous Fox charges of treason, and instead mutters something about “espionage” as he barrels forward like Brezhnev in the old commie days, sure that any excuse could be [...]

Joementum

Polls are showing that it’s possible Joe Sestak will beat Arlen Specter in the Democratic primary in Pennsylvania tomorrow; a sweeter outcome I could hardly wish.  A Sestak victory would be another nail in the alarmingly perforated coffin of  Obama’s silly idea of postpartisanship, and it would also show the voters, unlike the media that [...]

Jowling At The Moon

There are many non-Republicans in congress who are, by any measure, slimy, loathsome, corrupt, and duplicitous, but they need only be mentioned in the same sentence as Joe Lieberman and they suddenly look like honorable statesmen of the first order.  Who can forget, back in 1998, when ol’ Holy Joe emerged from well-deserved obscurity to [...]

Who Asked You, Ed Koch?

The Huffington Post has a charming feature I like to call “The Island of Misfit Toys,” wherein they let embarrassingly cuckoo nonentities write something and put it way at the bottom, providing unexpected delight to the eager reader.  On a slow news day, you can go in and read has-beens like, say, Tony Blankley lying [...]

Another Temper Tantrum

Probably the dumbest act in American political history was Al Gore’s choosing Holy Joe Lieberman as his running mate in 2000.  If I were Tipper, I would still be withholding sex for that one.  Why, pray tell, would anyone choose a corrupt, midget slimeball for a running mate whose sole qualification was his prim, Defense [...]
