Joe Lieberman keeps hurting America

Senator Lieberman got his wish today when his dear personal friend and Republican sock puppet Sam Fox was appointed by President Bush using the "recess loophole" when the Senate took a week off. When are these dummies in the Senate going to learn that it's not safe to take a leak without leaving a quorum in the chamber to prevent Bush from pulling shit like this? You guys had better forget taking a day off until January 20th, 2009!

Bush withdrew Fox's name from nomination when it became apparent that he wouldn't win approval, and then he turned around and gave him the job without the say of the Senate.

We have truly lost the "Great Battle for Democracy" if this kind of thing is allowed to continue. If there are ANY patriots left in the Senate besides Chris Dodd, they had better speak up RIGHT NOW!

Chris Dodd today:
"It is outrageous that the President has sought to stealthily appoint Sam Fox to the position of ambassador to Belgium when the President formally requested that the Fox nomination be withdrawn from the Senate because it was facing certain defeat in the Foreign Relations Committee last week. I seriously question the legality of the President's use of the recess appointment authority in this instance. I intend to seek an opinion on the legality of this appointment from the General Accountability Office and invite other Senators to join with me in that request. This is underhanded and an abuse of Executive authority — sadly this behavior has become the hallmark of this administration."
Thank you, Senator Dodd! Now it's up to the rest of the good Americans who occupy the Senate to nut up and DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!

...and I secretly wish that Sam Fox chokes on a golfball-sized hunk of brie at the Embassy Ball in Brussels.

Congrats and Kudos for your first anniversary of ctbob.blogspot. I've enjoyed reading your blog over the past year. You are truly gifted, and have provided some memorable posts and outstanding video clips of Joe L and the Lamont campaign.

I'm happy to see that you are bringing back the Lieberman watch. Thanks for highlighting the fact that Joe recieved $20,000 from Fox and his wife the day AFTER the election in November. Then, Joe goes out of his way to endorse the guy - and he isn't even on that committee!!! come one!!!

I guess it's legal but it's SO corrupt. Once again, (like the illegal slush fund) Joe is getting a pass. He's "holy Joe" after all!

I hope you keep this story alive,
and continue to keep a watchful eye on the Junior Senator.

Thanks for all you do - we all appreciate it!
