In today's Hartford Courant, Joe Lieberman was asked if he would caucus with the Republicans. Lieberman was quoted as saying:
"The answer is no," he said.
Then he continued with a statement that depleted every last bit of irony left in the Cosmos:
"When I give my word I stick with it, and I am definitely going to organize with the Senate Democrats."
Of course, we don't need to go over a list of Lieber-lies, do we?
"Eighteen years is enough"
"I will not run as an Independent"
"I was never in favor of privatization of Social Security"
"Ned Lamont said 'partisan frenzy', I didn't say that."
"I won't miss more votes than my predecessor"
"...it shouldn't take more than a short ride..."
etc. etc. etc.
No, Joe's lies are very much out there for anyone to see. He sucked all the irony out of the Universe with that one statement. From now on, everything has to be taken completely literally. There's simply no irony left after Joe got done with it.
When it comes to Joe Lieberman, you can be absolutely sure of one thing:
"When Joe gives his word, you can be sure there's a very slight chance he might stick with it."
