It’s not been a good week to be Joe Lieberman (not that the situation isn’t entirely of his own making). He’s been vilified (rightfully), called “stupid” (probably rightfully) and been forced to acknowledge that he’s kind of a liar and definitely an opportunist. Then when Lieberman went to the Senate floor on Thursday, mean old Al Franken wouldn’t even let him speak for an extra “moment” — possibly because Lieberman’s been such a colossal prick. Hey, people can be mean in real life!
So imagine what they did to Joe Lieberman on the Internet! On his own Facebook page, even!
Of course, not everyone visiting Lieberman’s page is a fan — at least they’re not acting like fans, anyway.
Excellent point, James Kiernan, and excellent observation Joe M Stevens. Of course, on your second point — which we’re counting as your “Christmas Wish” — you should be aware that Sen. Lieberman actually has government health care, and even if he had testicular cancer, he’d probably be fine.
