You're hanging around my fuckin' neck like a vulture, like impending death.


Who gives a rat's petutie what Joe Lieberman says has to be done about Iraq? Follow-up question: when will the media do the Senate math and recognize Joe represents only Joe at this point?

Speaking in Hartford last Wednesday, Lieberman remained unwavering in his opposition to Democrats' calls for withdrawing troops from Iraq. "What we are doing now there is not working, but that doesn't mean in any sense that it is time for us to retreat," he said. "This is a test in a very difficult and dangerous hour in our history."

But his victory also was something of an aberration, and whatever the fate of Lieberman's proposed bipartisan group, which he pledges to introduce in January, his continued support of Bush's stay-the-course approach places him well outside the Democratic mainstream.

"The voters spoke on Tuesday that they're unhappy with the status quo," Lieberman said. However, he added, "I don't believe they want us to pick up and leave."

Since upwards of 60% of Americans support a withdrawal from Iraq I'd say that Joe's support for the war doesn't just put him outside of the "Democratic mainstream" but out of the American mainstream.

I know Joe did great by pretending he wasn't a Bush lapdog during the general election and fooled enough Dems/ Moderates to make his almost overwhelming Republican support signifigant enough to get him re-elected but that doesn't in any shape or form mean we should take Joe seriously now. He is not a serious man.

It seems like Karma is getting ready to swing a big hammer at Liebfraumilch.

He will be irrelevant in a couple of years when Dems pick up more Senate seats, anyway.
