Hey, it's the guy who helped W win in 2000.

Who would have expected Benedict Arnold to be so understanding of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg?

All the #walkaway Democrats that totally exist and aren't just accounts created by troll farms.

Of course he did.

No decent people are defending these assholes. Their entire support community is unethical monsters.

Hi! Welcome to The Hill. Holy shiat Joe Lieberman is still alive??

Meanwhile, the "bipartisan" voting rights bill that Joe Manchin supported because the better one was "too partisan" was voted on in the Senate today.

Party-line vote. Every single Republican voted against it. (And Schumer changed his vote to a 'no' for procedural reasons so the issue could come up again).

But then, Manchin knew that would happen. He doesn't give a fark about bipartisanship, he cares about making sure nothing threatens his or his donors' environmentally-disastrous businesses even a little bit. Thus, he's happy to block anything that would inconvenience the GQP's dictatorial intentions.

He's promoting his book, right?

How could you resist something like this?

Now, the 79-year-old ex-lawmaker has a new book out, about how to tread through today's even choppier, polarized political waters.

Part policy-driven approach, part memoir, the book out Tuesday also includes lighter moments from Lieberman's career.

Lieberman, the guy who was all like "videogames are the worst problem in America" in the goddamn 90s?

Nice subby. I didn't even have to click.

Lieberman has been irrelevant for quite a while which is why we haven't heard of him in years.

And now that he has a book out he's suddenly in the "news."

The bright is that you can file any so-called journalist that writes articles about him in the "shill" drawer.
 
2021-10-21 1:47:28 AM  
F you subby. Lieberman is a hero. He once blew twenty dudes for cab fare home and still walked the 10 miles anyway.

Epicedion: Lieberman, the guy who was all like "videogames are the worst problem in America" in the goddamn 90s?


I was reading the wiki article on this. Apparently, it has a pre-video game precedence, and it seems to be more about the generational gap then it is video games. But, since our legislators are still upset about the civil war and the cotton tax, this is what we get. Culturally, we're stuck in the late 1970s. We're on a 50 year farking lag between what they're reacting to, and what is actually happening.

In other words, they're seriously out of touch.

In this case, it's more of a "the shill" drawer.

When historically-promising national health-care legislation was on the line, Senator Lieberman adamantly fiilibustered any public option.

Bragged about it in the media at time and seemed very proud about this particular accomplishment.

Then, he energetically campaigned as a Republican for the office of Vice-President of the United States.

It was nust hilarious when he threatened to derail tge ACA if it so much as included a public option or Medicare buy in. And I can't stop laughing about he endorsed Bush and McCain for their war mongering ways. Me and the million dead Iraqis just think that is a knee slapper.
 
2021-10-21 2:12:48 AM  
Knew it was Lieberman before I even clicked the thread.

He's still bitter that he effectively became a political pariah after he and Gore lost in 2000.  Nobody except McCain wanted anything to do with him, and even McCain opted to go with someone else for his VP spot.

Lieberman said "The Centrist Solution: How We Made Government Work and Can Make it Work Again"

These people have fully bought into a fictionalized version of their own past. Capitulating to the worst elements of American politics has never produced a result that a functioning human being could ever describe as "working".

The best you could claim, especially over the last 40 years, is "slightly less broken than it could be"; which is a whole other problem for Droopy because he was always part of the group that was fighting against "This will make things slightly less broken than it is now".

Joe Lieberman, man of conscience? HaHaHa, not funny.
These three " Dems" aren't following their conscience. They're following the money or their Corporate masters.
Lieberman was following his conscience when he denied some semblance of Healthcare for everyone? How the fuq does that square with his conscience? Manchin and Simina are both recipients of big bribes from Pharma, so no affordable drug prices for 330 million Americans. How is that following their conscience unless they are greedy avaricious mofos who don't give a schit about their fellow countrymen?

Such gems as:

"And that's when I pushed the Russian hooker off my shriveled dick, clinked glasses with the Healthcare Execs and said "F*CK THE POOR!" HAHAHAHA... then I let her finish me off."

Lieberman. Manchin. Menendez. Sinema. And still you wonder why the Dems won't help America.

When talking about sitting Democratic Party Senators being corrupt , there is a certain few that will spam the thread trying to gaslight everyone about them.

Non-sitting former Senator of the same pedigree doesn't get the same response I suppose.

Lieberman needs to talk to his Republican pals about the definition of compromise.  Where are all the Republicans voting their conscience rather than holding to the party line?
 
2021-10-21 8:37:01 AM  
The centrist solution isthe Democrat solution.

They are the far left, the center and the reasonable right.  Anything with the GOP onboard, is not centrist, it's far right.

//Who am I kidding? The GOP will never get onboard with any Democratic bill.

I expect to see remaindered copies at The Dollar Tree soon.

I sincerely thought Lieberman was dead. Or near death, and that's why we hadn't heard from him in awhile.

Well, hoped, really. (shrug)

His campaign committee probably still exists and will be buying them in bulk.
