No, Dems aren't crying, but they ought to be. They lost one good man when they ganged up on Joe. Lieberman didn't leave the party. The party left him.
Did he lose his liberal caring? Did he reveal his Klan membership alongside Senator Byrd? Did he become a fiscal conservative?
Perish such rubbish.
He sided with his commander in chief in time of war.
He stood behind the troops without the wishy-washy platitudes of the phonies in his previous party, those that forced him to become independent by shamelessly ganging up on him to support that lame spoiled poli-preemie, Ned Lamont after Ned beat him in the primary.
Never give up, never let up, and you'll never let yourself down
It looked pretty bleak for Joe.
Old pals like fellow Senator Dodd refused to back him. Hillary chose the Dem candidate, Lamont. Howie Dean ordered him out of the race. Sharpton and Jackson brought the race baiters vote to Ned. But ole' Joe didn't buckle. He hung by his gut, his conscious, his sense of right, and most important, his patriotism.
He won and the Dems lost. We're just beginning to see the benefits of Joe being thrown off the cliff.
Now he's the most powerful man in congress. He owes no one. He's subservient to his conscious, not the Democratic Party's talking points and voting instructions.
The current misbehavior of the Democrats and a few Johnny come lately, Republicans is why Joe is special. He risked it all so he could look himself in the mirror and still like what he sees.
Those with flaws are irritating to those of us that have none
The others? They're so obvious, it's sickening. You have to wonder if they'd kill their own to get and keep power. They certainly don't mind encouraging al-Qaeda, disheartening our troops, and challenging the role of the president as commander in chief.
Question the war? Okay. Dilute our President's ability to fight the war? Despicable.
Now Dems have backed away from the reason they were elected, the very reason they abandoned Lieberman in the first place…their promise to end the war as quickly as possible. The Pelosi led House and the Reid run Senate are feeling the heat from those that are even further out there than they are. Were talking George Soros, Cindy Sheehan left. I don't care who you are, if you think that's not southpaw, you should go home and end it all. You're never gonna get it!
Hell even Sheehan has had enough. She resigned Memorial Day, from the party fronted by phonies. Guess she found out that unless you follow ALL the hate Bush daily DNC points ALL the time, you won't even get a "Choose Hugo, Dump Bush" sign painted for your rally. The grieving Mom of brave GI son, Casey, gets no sympathy from the left.
She dared to criticize DEMOCRATS!!! That's right. She called Hillary on her war vote, and the Democratic controlled Congress run by Pelosi and Reid on their cave-in to Bush for war funding.
How dare her!?!
Just what does one have to do to stay in good with the Dems…sell your soul?
It appears so.
Nancy's answer to her unspeakable betrayal to her minions?
Never play hokey pokey with a twister
In a move obviously stolen from "Animal House", Pelosi jetted off, maxi-carbons a blazing, to discuss global warming with her Euro phony counterparts…as if that's more pressing to her crowd than the Iraqi war. She claims that in Greenland she personally witnessed global warming…and that it is man made.
Think about that for a moment.
And I used to think Hillary was the smartest woman in the universe. Wow! Was I off.
Senator Lieberman, you don't need to tarnish yourself with these lightweights. Joe, stay right where you are, conscious intact. Make both parties come to you.
Who knows? Maybe you'll start a trend…congressmen that think and reflect versus cower and obey.
Mrs. Robinson would approve.
