What in God's name did we do to piss him off so badly?
We MUST have done SOMETHING bad...and he should at least give us a chance to apologize before he does something nutty.
Like, having former Democrat, former Connecticut-For-Lieberman-candidate, self-proclaimed Independent senator Joe fricken Lieberman give the weekly Democratic radio address, to discuss the scandal at Walter Reed.
This is the very same Joe Lieberman who appeared on Imus the other day and clearly didn't know squat about the situation. Suddenly, he's the very best guy the Democrats could find to make this speech.
What, is everybody suddenly taking crazy pills?
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is obviously suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, which is the psychological condition that occurs when a hostage begins to identify with his captor.
Joe Lieberman apparently has been holding Harry Reid (and by definition, the Senate Democrats) hostage ever since he weaseled his way back into the Senate, and Reid is clearly exhibiting all the signs of a Stockholm victim. Reid has obviously been so severely damaged psychologically that he actually believes that Lieberman's threat to leave the party over Iraq will be a disaster for the Democrats.
We need to do something before it's too late.
I think we should stage an intervention for Senator Reid, get him in a room surrounded by loyal Democrats, and have them list all the reasons why he should STOP cow-towing to Senator Lieberman.
And we won't let him out until he comes back to his senses.
Otherwise, we're all going to start thinking that the Senate really IS just a great big incumbant-protection racket, and that the only way we'll be able to get better government will be to primary out ALL the senators who fail to listen to their constituents.
Then maybe we'll finally get elected officials who truly represent us.
