Man of the Schmear

From The Crypt at Politico:

Money can’t buy him love, but John McCain-backing Joe Lieberman is hoping a little cash will diffuse Democrats’ anger towards him — and help him keep his chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Public Works Committee.

After forking over $100,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee last year, the Connecticut Democrat-turned-independent has written a second $100,000 check to DSCC Chairman Chuck Schumer in recent days, according to a people familiar with the situation.

Original DVD cover.

Lieberman caucuses — awkwardly — with Democrats […] but is on the outs with many in his longtime party for turning his back on Barack Obama […] More than a few have talked about stripping him of his committee post after November.

Thus Lieberman’s schmear campaign. Lieberman’s Responsibility/Opportunity/Community PAC, has given the DSCC $30,000 since last year — in addition to doling out smaller donations to the New Mexico Democratic party and the reelection campaigns of Democratic centrists Max Baucus, Mary L. Landrieu and Mark Pryor.

    Lieberman seems to have the political situation well in hand and his hand is in his pocket.

    Joe, Joe, Joe, come out of the closet and come to the dark side. Stop pretending, you know that you’re a rethug at heart. You have all of the characteristics; lying, double-dealing, self-righteous smugness and just a general air of sleaziness.

    Nonnie, love the knee pads. Real nice touch.

  3. fotc,
    only one hand is in his pocket, the other is down some pants–and not his own.

  4. jeb,
    yayyy!! you noticed the kneepads! that was a last minute thought. i thought it needed a little something. i didn’t realize it until right now that joe mcliebercain coordinates his suit color with his moneybag. cl-ass-y!

    Holy Joe needs to reflect back on the musical classics to find some enlightenment. I suggest he start with the Beatles’ “Money Can’t By Me Love”…..

  6. when i think of joe mcliebercain, i think of that old beatles’ tune i wanna hold your head under water. 😳 oops! i think i got that wrong. it’s supposed to be i wanna hold your hand, isn’t it?

    Well, he shouldn’t count on being able to “Get By With a Little Help From My Friends.” With friends like Captain Underpants and Chimpy, who needs enemies?

    Ha-ha, nonnie! Nice job! Joe (R-CT) looks like he’s so excited about all that money that he needs to use the restroom. It must be hard for him to contain himself. After all, $230,000 buys one heckuva lotta loyalty!

    I have to admit that when I read the title Man of the Schmear, I thought the post was going to be about The Cheeseman himself, CU. I thought it might be a play on “smear” for his treatment of Obama or “schmere casa.” (I’m sure my spelling is wrong, but it’s German for “spreadable CHEESE.”)

  9. gotta,
    you got that right. they will be his friends as long as they need him. then they will throw him away like one of boohoo boner’s used tissues.

  10. nightowl,
    capt u doesn’t know how to schmear. schmearing takes a modicum of finesse, and capt u has none of that.

  12. dcAp,
    first, forgive me for editing your comment a little bit. if i leave the dirty words in, then a hysterical raisins VIP is not able to open the page.
    my message to joe mcliebercain is the old yiddish saying that my grandma taught me–you should grow like an onion, with your head in the ground, and your feet in the air. it sounds much better in yiddish, but then i would have to figure out how to spell it. of course, with joe mcliebercain’s head always up capt underpants’s ass, i am not sure how all that will work.
