From The Raw Story:

Senator Joseph Lieberman, the former Democrat of Connecticut who endorsed the Republican presidential candidacy of Senator John McCain, is moving closer to attending the Republican National Convention in September.

Original DVD cover.

Since Lieberman lost the Democratic primary to challenger Ned Lamont in Connecticut’s 2006 Congressional election, the former Al Gore running mate’s support for Democratic Party causes has drifted. While Lieberman at one time declared his intention to help elect a Democratic president in 2008, he endorsed John McCain’s candidacy in December and has campaigned heavily by his side.


Last week, Lieberman was stripped of his “superdelegate” status, which granted him a guaranteed vote for a Democratic candidate in Denver. Under the so-called “Zell Miller” rule, named for the Georgia senator who spoke out against John Kerry and his fellow Democrats at the 2004 RNC, Lieberman’s endorsement of a Republican candidate makes him ineligible to vote at the DNC.

Ummmmm, shouldn’t it be because he is not a Democrat? He ran under the Connecticut for Lieberman Party ticket.

    He should be stripped alright, then tarred and feathered and set loose to lay eggs all over the Republican Convention. He makes my blood boil….

    i cannot stand that the senate, which should be a deliberative body that worries about we the people, is instead a country club, where everyone is chummy with everyone else (except larry craig). that little shithead lieberman should have been shunned the moment he decided that the rules were for everyone else but him. the party should have thrown him out then and there. he is not a democrat. he belongs to his party of one.

    I’m not fit company for man or beast tonight (just ask the cat, the dog and my sister). I’m so upset about the FISA vote today, I feel like going postal. Fortunately, the weather is too bad for me to get out into the public sphere where I might do damage to passersby with hunks of ice from my frozen lawn…. 😈

    OK, that DOES it! This is one of the funniest posts EVER! I started laughing as soon as I saw the title and I hasn’t stopped yet… Maybe I’ll come back later when I can breathe again!

    speaking of the weather, gotta, it has been miserable here all day. gray and rainy. it didn’t stop raining for even a minute. that’s really nothing new. what is new is that, for the first time i can remember (which might not be saying much), we are under a tornado watch! the thunder and lightning are starting in earnest now (i hope it’s thunder, i don’t know what a tornado sounds like! 😯 ), and there might be hail.

    but did you like it, nightowl? πŸ˜€
    if you see fotc around, please tell her to get over to the street. there is something over there for her to see.

  7. nonnie,

    Don’t worry about what a tornado sounds like. If you ever actually hear one, it will be too late to do anything about it. Like the sound of a Diebold slot machine. . . .

    and I love this poster! It’s the only time I’ve ever actually laughed at The Three Stooges!

    thanks, jlynne, that’s comfortiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

    πŸ˜† did i scare ya? did you think the big bad tornado got me?
    that wasn’t funny. chalk it up to being influenced by the 3 stooges. it’s really a gender thing. men think the stooges are funny; women think they are idiots (the stooges…..well, maybe the men, too! πŸ˜› ).

    Alright, I’ve returned to the seen of the temper tantrum in a slightly better mood (and I do mean slightly).

    You always hear people say that tornadoes sound like a freight train. They do, but the reference is only pertinent if you’ve lay down beside the tracks as the train passes. What usually happens, at least in my experience, is the sky turns a lovely shade of green and everything becomes absolutely still. Birds stop singing, there’s not a breath of wind and there’s a drop in pressure that makes your ears pop. Then all hell breaks loose, there’s hail and torrential rain and then things start to fly apart. It’s very unpleasant, to say the least. If they tell you to take cover or your alarm sirens go off, get in the bathtub and cover yourself with blankets and pillows or better yet, a mattress. ASAP. I’m saying this because I doubt that you have a basement or a storm cellar handy, and laying in a ditch will mean risking alligator attack.

    As to the stooges, my mom wouldn’t let me watch them because she said they were “sadistic.” There’s real irony there, but we won’t go into that. I didn’t really want to watch them, anyway. I wanted to watch the old, original Superman. Now we have mighty mikko mouse to save us. I actually like that best of all…. πŸ˜‰
