Mr. Magee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

I assume everybody is up to speed on the Harry Reid/ Joe Lieberman melodrama of last week. It won't come as any surprise that I come down on the side of those that want to have Holy Joe lose his chairmanships, be expeled from the party and then summarily tomatoed to his knees in the public square. But that doesn't even come close to expressing how I really feel.

When I think about the possibility that the slimy traitorous little weasel Lieberman might retain those chairmanships when loyal, true-blue Democrat Hillary Clinton doesn't chair any committees of her own, I'm filled with a Hulkian rage giving me the strength to tear a toaster in two with my bare hands.

Seniority be damned. Give his committees to Hillary. She's more than earned them and she won't be stabbing us in the back.

You shouldn't hide your true feelings! Hillary can only have those chairmanships until she's given that Supreme Court Justice position she totally deserves.

There's a surreal scene in a book I like, David Brin's "Kiln People," where (for complicated reasons) one of the characters crawls up a genetically-engineered dinosaur's rectum to die without harming others. That would be good for Joe, too. For a start.

BTW, the URL of this post is "I assume everyone is up to speed on HTML." Umm, no, but I'm slowly figuring it out, OK?

I'm glad I haven't heard some bizarre groundswell of 'pragmatism.'

"If they take away what Holy Joe has, he'll run to the GOP and we'll have one less Dem!"

And?

Joe the Holy is worse than Joe the Wurzelbacher.

@lockwood, heh heh.

Nobody is up to speed on HTML

randal-

Joe the Holy is worse than Joe the Wurzelbacher.

Ooh, that's a tough distinction. You've identified a real nexus of wankery there.

ubermilf-

THAT he would probably consider torture. Waterboarding- not so much.
