The Final Phoniness Of Holy Joe

When Joe Lieberman shoehorned his way into the recent fight to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, I knew he had to be up to something.  Lieberman is the most selfish politician in Christendom. 

It turns out that Holy Joe was cleverly setting the stage for his grand bipartisan exit, which he’s announcing today.  See if you can stomach this:

My interest in public service was inspired by President John F. Kennedy, who — coincidentally 50 years ago tomorrow in his Inaugural Address — asked us to ask ourselves what we could do for our country and challenged us to bear any burden to assure the survival and success of liberty.

The politics of President Kennedy — service to country, support of civil rights and social justice, pro-growth economic and tax policies, and a strong national defense — are still my politics, and they don’t fit neatly into today’s partisan political boxes any more either.

Oh, please.  This simpering, sanctimonious traitor has had his wingtips planted firmly on progressive necks ever since Connecticut Democrats rejected his ass in 2006.  And everybody knows it.

Lieberman designed his last major role — as a champion of civil rights — to try to remind people of what he used to be — a long time ago, in a moral galaxy far, far away.
