Joe Should Go

I wish I was a United States Senator, so I could introduce a bill to strip Joe Lieberman of his American citizenship.

You know, Golden Rule and all that. Sauce for the goose, sauce for the gander. What goes around comes around.

Joe Lieberman = Al Gore's Biggest Mistake.

I don't think that being a pandering is a disease, unless being a politician is an illness. In fact, if anything McCain is finally being honest. He was never actually a maverick except in posture. Lieberman was perhaps a bit more craven, but he was always for sale, and a creature of expediency.

So you don't agree with him that some asshole with a car full of fireworks and gas cans is EVEN WORSE THAN THE NAZI WAR MACHINE? You must Hate Our Freedom, George.

Ugh. These are scary fucking times to be a 'Saladin,' I'll tell you that much...

Thanks. I've been busy this week and didn't know what this was about. You helped me clue in on the right articles.

Just as long I can write the headlines. Congress Passes First Bill of Attainder in US History: "Did It For The Lulz", Says Reid, "Leiberman Douchebag Anyway". Hell yeah.

I think Al Gore has made bigger mistakes. Lieberman was okay until Bush-Cheney defeated Gore-Lieberman. It was only after he lost that Lieberman turned into a total dick. (Though he telegraphed a bit when he insisted on staying on the Senate ballot just-in-case Gore lost the election.)

Gore's biggest mistake was not being his own man. Allowing Lieberman on the ticket was merely the symptom. Although Lieberman has always played both ends against the middle.

It's a shame the people of Connecticut didn't oust him when they had the chance. Of course, a man with an ounce of shame would have conceded when he lost the primary.

NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER SURRENDER!

But he probably wouldn't do so good against the pig thing.

While I think that making you a senator would be an insufferable loss to your readers, I certainly do wish that more senators were as smart as you.

That said, I think Gore's greatest mistake was believing Faux News when they called the election for Bush, which would make Lieberman only his second biggest mistake.

Being a Roman history buff, when I first heard about this, I said "I have a bad feeling about this..."

If it's any consolation, I live in CT and I very much doubt Joe will be getting re-elected.

Lieberman and Gore
I also dislike the whole retro-deactivate citizenry thing as well, but I am not surprised it was Lieberman (and McCain).

As far as Al Gore's biggest mistake, I simply do not have time to weed through all the nominees.

Cheers George.

There is something wrong with United States Senators (and Representatives) are doing the best examples of un-Americanism sine the McCarthy days.

VOTE THE BUMS OUT.

I tend to keep pretty close track of the news, and I hadn't heard about this bill. Pretty chilling if you ask me. However, it isn't very surprising, sad to say. You go from declaring war on "terror" -- or in other words groups of people -- to saying you'll strip citizenship from people who allegedly or actually support these groups of people. Well, it's nice and arbitrary, and the full weight of the government will make sure that defending yourself successfully is almost impossible.

It used to be that we declared war against actual nation-states. You know, like we did with Japan and Germany. Now we're reduced to doing it against a bunch of whackjobs living in the desert half a world away with no real military to speak of. It's pretty pathetic on our part, IMO... and dangerous, too.

As far as Liberman himself: I'm not the least bit surprised. The man, like many politicians, has been for sale all along. The deeper and long term ramifications of this bill doesn't matter to him at all. I'm glad he's not from my state, but he's still an embarassment.

Joe Lieberman has always been a sanctimonious ass.

sorry
Sorry, George, but it would be a writ of attainder. ;)

Stripping?
Senators who propose unconstitutional laws should be immediately stripped of their title. I'd like to ask, "What are they THINKING?" but I know the answer. They're not.
