I’m sick of seeing you. I’m sick of you pandering to Bush and his Iraq debacle. I’m sick of you losing primaries and running as an “independant.” You’re as much of a Democrat as Zell Miller. The problem is, you still have a Senate seat. If you became any more like a Republican, you’d end up in a gay sex scandal.
By the way, how’s that Joe-mentum working these days?
I don’t agree with you on a number of topics, but there are a variety that I do. I appreciate someone who has opposing viewpoints, but can rationally listen to the other side and make a decision. We need more of you on both sides of the aisle. Keep up the good work.
I am so glad this idiot no longer calls himself a Democrat. Endorsing a GOP candidate for President is the final straw. Lieberman should just make it official and join the Republican party already. What did Al Gore ever see in this guy?
He can think what he likes, vote his conscience, whatever. But he needs to just shut up. Shut Up. He has the whiniest voice of anyone in public speaking I’ve ever heard. I find myself wondering about his adenoids when he’s droning on about “security” or whatever. I’d rather listen to Alvin and the Chipmunks talk foreign policy.
I think him and McCain make perfect bedfellows. They both pretend to be mavericks, but get them in the back room and read them the Riot Act, and they play ball. They like money in unmarked envelopes, too.
Yeah. We supported him for years, even though he was out of lockstep with some of our views. Offered him the world to stay with us in the Senate. We got upset with him when he jumped ship after winning as a Republican with Republican money.
Such does not apply with Lieberman, who won without the official backing of either party. He’s free to do what he wishes.
Lieberman is neither independent nor free thinking, but even if he was, that doesn’t mean a person can’t be wrong. Lieberman’s mindless (i.e. UNthinking) support of the war and of Bush is fucking diseased and despicable regardless of his former party association.
I find it funny, though, that you Democrats will try to cleanse those people out of your party that you see as wrong. And if you don’t get your way, you’ll throw a fit.
Humphrey is a “warmonger”, so you’ll so foul up his convention that you’ll totally prevent his election. You’ll endorse an antiwar candidate four years later so extreme and out of touch with vast parts of even his own party that he’ll carry just one state.
Now many years layer, you’ll jettison a sitting senator (and former vice-presidential candidate) for a candidate whose only appeal is his antiwar rhetoric, only to see the incumbent win far more votes in the general election. It’s deja vu all over again.
Oh lord, must somebody say this in every thread? She said he’s an idiot, obviously she disagrees with him. Not “everybody I disagree with about everything is an idiot.” There’s a word of difference and this question always reeks of phony offense.
Well, then, it would be interesting for her to say why she thinks he is an idiot. Much as I disagree with the man, I don’t fault his intelligence.
In American politics, the left tends to call their opponents stupid and the right tends to call theirs immoral. I think that’s fine in the case of specific proven stupid or immoral people, but as an ad hominem it is a logical fallacy that ought to be called out.
Considering that Nixon’s ‘dirty tricks’ squad was busy sabotaging the campaigns of Edmund Muskie, Scoop Jackson and pretty much everyone but McGovern, you can’t really put all the blame on those petulant Democrats.
