Did’ja see the
mutual masturbation session interview that Helmet-Head Sean Hannity had with ass-wipe Joe Lieberman (I-CT) last week right before the Senate pajama party? Me neither. I don’t watch Faux News. Never have, never will. However, while googling, I happened upon the transcript. Get out your barf bags, kids; here are a few snippets:
HANNITY:…Congress’ approval rating now that Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have been in power is now at an all-time low in the history of poll taking at 16 percent. We have been through non-binding resolutions, we have been through the idea that Petraeus was appointed unanimously. Harry Reid at the time said trust the generals. The surge was approved. We’re not supposed to get the full report until September.
Why did they decide do this now, considering they were supposed to give General Petraeus that time?
LIEBERMAN: There is no good reason to have this vote and this series of votes now. I know the war is unpopular. I know that there is pressure within different constituencies to do something. But Sean, what you said is basically right. We adopted a law in May that set a series of benchmarks. First the interim report last week.
The only reason to have the vote now would be, apart from politics, would be if you thought there was evidence that the surge counteroffensive was failing. In fact, as you know, all of the evidence is that it was succeeding. So this is wrong.

Here’s more from the
HANNITY: …what does this do to your relationship with the party? That you had a relationship for 18 years?
LIEBERMAN: Longer than that. Ever since I became a registered voter. I am an independent and I caucus with the Democrats, but I’m really disappointed by the direction of the Democrats have gone. And I’ve got to tell you I am also disappointed that in a vote like this, on the so-called Levin-Reed Amendment to mandate a retreat of our troops, the vote is going to be divided almost totally along partisan lines.
HANNITY: If I agree with you that this will hand a victory to Iran and al Qaeda, as you said.
HANNITY: This is the defining issue as far as I’m concerned in our time, and the party that you were once aligned with, you are at complete odds with here. And I know you get asked this question a lot. Politically does this open the door for you to maybe align with the Republicans in the future?
LIEBERMAN: I am going to take it issue by issue. I’m not really thinking about anything except to express as I did to my colleagues in my colleagues in the Democratic Caucus today my profound disappointment with the direction that they are taking on these votes, which I think is bad for America, bad for our security, and frankly I think it is bad for the future of the Democratic Party. Because unless you can gain the confidence of the American people on security, no matter how upset they are with President Bush, etc., etc., they’re going to hesitate to vote for a Democratic candidate for president.
Alan Colmes apparently jumped up and down enough for someone to notice, and he asked Shit-Face Joe if he would vote for Al Gore if he entered the race for President. This was Traitor Joe’s answer:
I would apply the same standard I said I would before. I am going into this as an independent. I am going to wait until both parties and maybe a third party nominate their candidates for president and I’m going to support whichever one will be best for America regardless of what party label they carry.
There’s more, but I can’t bring myself to read it again.
When are the Democratic leaders in Congress going to call this rancid little bastard what he is–a Rethuglican, and a vile one at that. Stop kissing his scrawny traitorous ass! Geez, I hate that little bastard!
