In an amazing display of spinelessness

and all-around stupidity, the democrats--who obviously either
(a) forgot they're in power
(b) forgot that Joe Lieberman is a power-hungry lying traitorous bastard

voted to let Lieberman keep his chair of the Homeland Security Senate committee.

You know, I could understand how we just had to stand by and watch ourselves getting screwed when Newt and his thieves were in power. I could ALMOST KINDA understand when Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid would say they didn't have a majority, so they were just gonna bend over and take it right up the old wahzoo. But this? THIS?

It's only a couple weeks after the happiest election day of my life (including when Ann Richards was elected governor of Texas), and already I'm seeing that nothing changes. I think these bastards are ALL in the same club. Every once in a while, the script varies, and someone pretends they have a backbone or someone actually gets in trouble for cheating on taxes or whatever. But now I see the truth: try to pick-up random guys in airport restrooms, wear a diaper and frequent hookers, campaign for the enemy, kiss Satan's ass, whatever. It doesn't matter. You've earned your golden ticket to the chocolate factory, and no amount of dipping your hands in the chocolate river, or chewing the forbidden gum, or bumping up against the ceiling after stealing Fizzy Lifting Drinks is going to hurt you.

You are golden, Joe Lieberman. No problem, David Vitter. Hey, Larry Craig, rest easy. Hell, Tom Delay, you won't go to jail! And don't worry, Ted Stevens, things will be fine. You're all golden. You're all in the club, and no matter what you do, or who you screw, you are untouchable.

Yeah, be triumphant, you asshole. Nothing and no one's gonna touch you or any of the other criminals in government.

I will be back to comment when I am done vomiting.

So - give me like a week or so.

I was pretty stunned when I heard about this on public radio today. Jezo.

To hell with them all.

Isn't that why you run for office?

The sight of that weasel makes me cringe.

I am just sickened by this. I'd like to say they must have their reasons, but I'm too annoyed to be generous.

It's not spinelessness. They wanted this. Now we have to ask ourselves why. And I agree with Jane Hamsher at Firedoglake, this was a big fuck you to the netroots/grassroots. The election's over, so we are supposed to go away now.

What a bunch of shit. Goddammit, how can I support this party when they do stupid shit like this all the time? You are correct--it's really hard to justify the stupid shit the democrats do. This is what it must feel like to the wingnuts who hope their party will abolish abortion but it never really happens.

If this wasn't a microcosm of Murka, then I don't know what is. I love this stupid country.

Dusty said...

Sweet Jaysus in a speedo...this fucktard could get away with murder, I swear to Buddha.

Dems spineless? Nah...the Big O demanded it.

But then again...they are a spineless bunch generally speaking. ;p

dguzman said...

Fran--already there.

Enc--stunned is right.

Dr. Monkey--I feel like saying that.

Real Live Lesbian--Apparently! Silly me--I believed all that shit I learned in govt class, and what Obama said on the campaign trail. I'm just a dumb fuck, I guess.

Some Guy--me too.

DCup--what reasons could possibly justify this? The guy CAMPAIGNED for the other side!!!! WTF!?

PiNY--holy shit. That's even darker and more depressing than my interpretation of it. Wow.


Randal--hard for me to love it.

Dusty--why, though? Is it what PiNY said???? Please tell me it's not.

I can't stand Lieberman. That said, Obama probably has good reasons to encourage "forgiveness" (although I'd sure like to have seen Lieberman be a bit more humble about it).

Remember this: He owes Obama big time. Obama gave out signals that the Dems should let bygones be bygones.

I am sure Obama will collect his favor one day.

c) they need all the help they can get in the senate

I know why they think they need to let him stay, but I don't care. What he did was unforgiveable and showed a total commitment to only one thing, Israel. I say throw the bum out on his ass and be done with him. I agree, he got off scot free.

Karen Zipdrive said...

I suspect that Lieberman will bend over backward to please President Obama now that his political life has been spared.
Call me crazy, but I trust Obama's judgment and I'm sure this was somehow a well-calculated move.
Having said that, I still think Lieberman is a slithering scumbag of Republican proportions.

dguzman said...

Maui--let's hope he DOES collect, and soon.


Feather--yes, he is a disgusting specimen. I just really don't get all this craziness over Israel. You know the guy's not really a good Jew--or he wouldn't be such a dickwad. So WTF?

Zip--"bend over backwards"--or forwards, whichever works.

You should move to Israel you sack of shit. You care more about that Country than your own. Who the F--k needs you?

Matty Boy said...

James Inhofe in the U.S. Senate just so there can be a guy with no felony convictions I hate more than I hate Joe Lieberman.
