Dodging Dodd

Yet another example of how Sen. Lieberman treats his friends - friends who showed the utmost loyalty to him:

In NH yesterday, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) tried to put some distance between himself and fellow CT Sen. Joe Lieberman. Dodd told a group of NH Dems a story of how he was trying to reach Lieberman by cell phone during the week before the primary and he never returned his calls. Dodd said the he was trying to reach Lieberman to prep him for the fact he wouldn't support an indie bid. Dodd also said Lieberman never told him anything about the indie plans. (Hotline sources).


"Civility."

wow!

what can I say but, very interesting!

well, it looks like dodd got an earful about joe in iowa last week.

that is, it looks like it took a trip to iowa for dodd to finally "get it" about how p*ssed Dems EVERYWHERE are about joe!
 
But, as I asked Dodd via Email, where is he in support of Lamont? I have yet to receive an answer. Personally, I like Senator Chris Dodd, but he isn't giving me that vibe that he's supporting Lamont. One would think, (or I would think) that Dodd would be gung ho supporting Lamont, considering most of what Dodd does support is pretty much rejected or disregarded by Lieberman. And from what I've seen of Senator Chris Dodd on the floor (thanks to C-Span2), I'd think that he'd be all supportive of Ned Lamont.

And, sickenly beyond that, Joe Lieberman gets a hero's welcome just for showing up at his job! I do my job pretty good, and no one gives me a hero's welcome! If I don't do my job, people (like sales reps and my boss) get pretty pissed off! And they sure as shit don't pat me on the back for showing up at the job... all I get is my paycheck at the end of the week!
So why does Joe Lieberman, elected and paid by us people, get a hero's f'n' weclome just for showing up??? Standing F'n Ovation no less!!! WTF is that all about?!?! Somebody should remind the senators, that Joe Lieberman, that same guy they applauded, LOST the F'n Primary! The Primary of his own F'n Party! Still with me? Cool. if not, let me break it down in simpler terms:
1.) Joe Lieberman was a "Democrat". For the past 18 years, he ran as a Democrat. He Beat Wieker in '88 based using Wieker's quetionable voting record... (leave the hypocracy for later)

2.) In 2000, he ran along side Al Gore for the VP position, while still running for his fairly safe Dem Seat in Senate. If Al Gore got elected (nevermind the BS at this point), Joe Lieberman would have left an open Dem Seat that would have been filled via Roland... that same repub gov who just did "time."

3.) 2004 (not much seen of Joe betwen 2000 and 2004 at this point)... Big Joe (Joementum) is running for President in the Democratic Party. Out of 9 people running, he was the only one supporting Bush, and suported the "Quote 'War On Iraq' UnQuote" Nevermind the jokes about his run for Pres, which is joke worthy, BUT, the fact, that he wasn't doing his job here in CT. Hell... I dont remember him showing up in CT running for Pres, let alone doing his job as a senator. But I must say this again: He supported Bush and the "War In Iraq"... Bush, the guy he was supposedly runnig against! DURING THE F'N ELECTION!!!

4.) Here we are in 2006, And Joe Lieberman decides, in Junish/Julyish time, to show up here! And Pray Tell, why does he show up? Someone, an unknown guy, started getting some recognition for asking questions. There was a known guy asking the same questions, and said if no one comes out and questions of this Senator or President, he will. That was Wiecker. And out of no where (or AAR, or Daily Kos or whatever) came Lamont. Not to sound cliche, but Lamont was, is a beeming shime of light! He has the balls to stand up and ask... a F'n Question!!! The question was "Why?" Why are we sending troops to Iraq? Why aren't we taking care of our own? Why are we going into so much debt as a country? And once again, Why (WTF) are we in Iraq??? A few people also had the same "why" questions I guess... because that's what brought Joe Lieberman back to CT. He actually showed up in March onto 1080AM (Colin McEnroe Show)... then he lost it on Colin.

But wait! There's More!!!(all part of .4).. and paraphrased as usual ) He then tell us Iraq is all happy with Satallte Dishes and Cell Phones. Then later, it's "BOO" Don't question the President during a time of War! Then there's the idea that Rape Victims can drive a little farther to get the required medical help they might need. OK, fine if you live in downtown Hartford where you have a real choice of St. Francis or Hartford Hospital, because they are only 5 minutes from each other. Not so sure everyone else has that hospital availabilty... "Thank you Mr. Senator Joe Lieberman"! My wife/daughter/sister will sleep the sleep of angels knowing that if they are Raped, it's only a short drive to another hospital so that Saint F'n Mary lovin Francis won't get their fingers dirty with an "abortion" (again...BOO!)

5.) And finally, there was the primary loss... But old Joe would have none of that! Oh No... he's too good to be beaten by a new comer. So what does he do? (Nevermind the BS Website crap and any other BS)... he creates his own party. Here comes the Irony: Connecticut For Lieberman Party! Ironic that Joe hasn't really been Joe For Connecticut for the past 6 plus years.

6.) Finally, (I think), is Joe Lieberman saying that a vote for Lamont is equivalent to supporting the Terrorists in England ( I paraphrase... you all can look up the real quote... trust me, it's out there) Ergo, anyone who decides to think and question, say the President, should be disregarded, and NOW, a terrorist sympathizer! And just because I used my American Given right to vote, I'm a terrorist sympathizer!

Thank you very F'n much Joe... All I did was try to be an American by doing my job as a citizen and vote. Now, according to you, I'm a terrorist!
