And So Another Spineless Moment....Liebermann gets away with Trashing Our New President yet keeps his prized positions in the Senate....


Little Joe was out on the trail stomping for McCain and fearmongering and trash talking Obama, he is NO Democrat, and why everyone pretends he is , is beyond me .....And so the Senate had a chance to teach a lesson, set a standard and doll out some well deserved punishment ....instead they come forth spewing crap about Healing Division by pretending it didn't happen and vote to let him keep his prized homeland security post ( which he does not deserve)...They plan to reprimand him ( oh goody)...Shame on them....Call your Senators...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Okay go to this blog Connecticut Blog, November 7th Post has Petititions that can be signed....it's worth a try to dump Joe...regardless of what the Good Ole'Boys of DC decided...
OR do sign FDL's JOE MUST GO Petition....

Absolutely infuriating....

I have a "reprimand" in mind for Joe, but it involves a special election held by his own Connecticut voters recalling him for misrepresenting them in the senate.

Since the dems aren't gonna reach the magic 60 anyway, I was hoping they'd finally cut Joe loose. The majority party gets to bestow chairmanships, and he is NOT part of the majority party. No way. Not after how he trashed Obama at the convention & stoked their fear.

I am not sure about the 60....I think we still stand a chance....Begich in AK, and I am still rooting for Al up in Minnesota..and then there is Georgia ( I am not sure what will happen there...)sadly they need the Georgia win to hit 60....59 is good, but not good enough....it's time to take back some power....

But about JOE....I do KNOW this, some of what he said out on the trail when he was blathering for McCain't should not go unchallenged and should not be swept under the rug, and to silence him and his war mongering and repug ways he should have lost his position on the HLS committee.....ATLEAST....

mandt::
yeah....infuriating..that is a good word...

And it was a SECRET vote? C'mon! Too afraid to tell us who voted how? Augghhhhh!

And if Lieberman's vaunted conscience tells him to caucus with dems, shouldn't he be doing that whether he is a chairman or not?

ps, you really think we have a chance in Georgia?

I can't believe he gets to keep a prize after sleeping with the enemy?

Hillblogger::
it's wrong....and I have NO answer...maybe because there is none?

DK::
yeah...about Georgia...I do....they are sending Jonny McCaint down to campaign....cough....( shit that alone should help sink Chambliss..) They have until December 2nd to sink him....so I am hopeful...( silly me...and that hope thing..)

about Joe...he is an idiot...he lost his conscience sooooo long ago...he only knows how to kiss up to Johnny McCaint ....and I agree with Harkin the things he said on the trail were beyond forgiveable..and if he had a conscience he would have never had said them...and Reid had a private meeting with him- big WHOOP....I want to hear a PUBLIC apology.....and yeah, the DEMS to find their damn spine..

"The Devil went down to Georgia" ... Jon Stewart did that last night! I dunno E, Saxby won that race to begin with ... it's only GA's rules about 50+1% that is forcing this run-off. It'd be wonderful to get GA back, though, most especially to hand Chambliss his ass after what he did to Max Cleland.

How can we find out who voted how in the big SECRET vote today? I cannot so conveniently forget Joe stabbing Obama in the back, trying to whip up the fear factor. Seems like McCain was welded at the hip to him & Lindsay Graham during the campaign.

enigma4ever said...

oh I wish we could find out WHO voted Which way...hmmm...and Reid had his little private meeting with Joe...he should have been publicly shamed and outed for his shitty behavior....instead....he gets away with all the crap he pulled this year...it's wrong on ALL levels...and it means he is indeed UN_trustworthy....period...

I am sick of the warmongering and fearmongering of Graham and Joey and Johnny....they better NOT also get in the way of closing Gitmo..that is my worry...their triumverate needed a swift kick in the ass- NOW of all times...

Fran said...

Love the graphic! I don't get how they can include Joe in the process either. If he wants to be bipartisan, he can do so OFF a committee.
Seemed to me he should have been assigned to *sanitation committee* (as in joe-the-plumber).

enigma4ever said...

oh that is perfect...like hmmmmm, maybe a Sewage committee ? or maybe one that studies Methane (hot air ??)

Infuriating is the only word I have to describe this. I truly can't believe the dems STILL have no spine. I have to wonder what sort of power does LIEberman actually have? What a sleazy piece o' crap the jowled traitor is.
