A Thousand Words

Sen. Lieberman's car parked at Fairfield University this morning:




Comments:
Did anyone call the police about this? That's illegal parking unless the car has a handicap sticker.
 
Wow - That really does just say everything you need to know about Lieberman, doesn't it?
 
But Lieberman IS handicapped....mentally.
 
I don't think being morally handicapped entitles you to one of those spaces, does it?
 
Is that a 2? Or a Z?
Zzzzzzzzzz....
 
what a big number 2
 
Sense of entitlement? Say it isn't so.
 
What kind of plate is it? I thought that 2 belonged to the lt. gov.
 
I didn't know Joe played drums! Hope he left his drumsticks on the dashboard.

(Inside musician joke...)
 
In Joe Lieberman's parallel universe, the laws of earth only apply to Joe Lieberman whenever Joe Lieberman feels they are convenient.
 
Tell me Joe's driver was in the car, and that they didn't really park there.

Oh the arrogance! I wonder what his excuse will be this time.

P.S. Who pays for the driver? Why should taxpayers pay someone to drive Joe Lieberman around on unofficial business.
 
Well, he was in a 2 way tie for that parking spot.
 
i think he is 2 because the governor is 1, just a hunch.. lol

but he is a big piece of number 2.
 
Oh wow!

Many years ago, a dear friend of mine was parapalegic (spinal cancer--survived!). And she had no patience with idiots who illegally parked in the handicapped spots.

So....she kept a blade in chair for just the RIGHT occasion. The person who grapped the handicapped spot would come back find at least one, sometimes four, tiers slashed and flat.

What were they going to do? Call the cops?

Too bad she's not alive to find this car....
 
That's the last straw... we can't trust the legislative functions of this great nation to a man who thinks a Mercury Grand Marquis is a good car.

And to think... in past cycles I donated to Joe's campaign.

Screw that. GO LAMONT!!!
 
How do you know that's Senator Lieberman's car?

After all, Senator Dodd is the senior senator from CT, and I'd bet CT-1 is owned by governor Jodi Rell.
 
And where's the registration sticker? Or does that not matter if you're an elected official?
 
I wrote to info@joe2006 and asked if this is the senator's car. I provided a description and attached the pics. I'll post the response if I get one.
 
Someone on DKos says #1 is reserved for the governor and #2 is the Lt Gov (Kevin Sullivan).
 
The registration sticker is visible on the whole car picture, but is missing on the close up. What gives?
 
The closeup is (apparently) the front plate. That's why it doesn't have a sticker, or the overhang from the trunk.

For the nth time on the nth blog: Rell get the plain Connecticut plate "1." Dodd, as senior senator, gets the US Senate "1." The "plain" low-number plates are generally political perks that each governor gets to pass out when they become available, usually when the previous holder dies.
 
I don't know about Connecticut, but in my state we only have to put the sticker on the back plate, and it looks like that photo is the front plate.
 
it clearly says US Senate on the plate - it ain't Sullivan's and I'd be surprised if it were Dodd's since Joe was there 4:31
 
2 = Junior Senator from Connecticut
 
I would guess that the close-up is of the front license plate, where (at least in all states I'm familiar with) the stickers aren't required, or even an option. Also, it doesn't have the trim over the plate that the rear-view picture shows.
 
There are several "1" and "2" Conn. license plates. The Gov. gets Conn. 1. Senior U.S. Senator gets "U.S. Sen. 1"; Senior congress(wo)man gets "U.S. House 1" etc. Lieberman is junior to Dodd so he gets "2" and Dodd gets "1." Most, if not all, states do this.
 
The close-up pic is probably of the front license plate, which doesn't have a regisration sticker.
 
Second picture is prob the front of the car.
 
Anonymous @4:48pm asks a good question. "The registration sticker is visible on the whole car picture, but is missing on the close up. What gives?"

Are we sure this pic is legit? Who took it? Do we know that this is Lieberman's car, and if so, how do we know this?

This picture is only worth a thousand words if we can show it is what we're making it out to be. Otherwise, it's just a funny picture that may or may not mean anything.
 
second picture is of the front, and from what I've heard Dodd get '1' Lieberman gets '2' Gov get 'CT-1' Lt. Gov get 'CT-2'

Well, it does say "U.S. Senate" so its likely Lieberman and not the governor or lt. governor. Maybe Dodd's got 1? After all, the Gov and Lt Gov haven't been in office nearly as long as Dodd and Lieberman.

Pretty outrageous about parking in the handicapped spot.
 
The second pic is of the front plate. I didn't take them, but I can assure you they are both 100% unaltered.
 
Did Lieberman get a plate with a 2 on it after he came in second in that primary?
 
So if Lamont is elected and gets the #2-Senate CT plate and car and the secret service requires him to park the vehicle in the front row of any event (even if there are a whole freakin row of handicap spots) are you all going to whine and bitch.
 
Senators don't get Secret Service protection.

Todays activities had nothing to do with Liebermans job as a Senator and everything to do with a political campaign.I hope someone is looking into whether his campaign is reimbursing the state for the use of the car and the retired State Cop who is Liebermans usual driver.
 
This is so childish.
 
anonymous - We the proletariat would not be so presumptuous to "whine and bitch". We should leave that to an expert, someone who has the principles and the experience to really do it right. We'll leave the whining and bitching to Joe Lieberman. Nobody does it he can...
 
Anonymous @8:59pm - Unless this is part of the 'everything' that 9/11 changed, the Secret Service doesn't follow the entire U.S. Senate everywhere they go.

Speaking of whining and bitching, though, I think this is the last time in awhile that I post to a moderated-comments forum. Due to the time lag for moderation, all the posts before my '@5:59pm' comment, starting with ImaJoeBob@5:16pm's post, were not visible when I was writing that post at about 5pm yesterday. Due to the moderating of comments, I couldn't see that they'd answered my questions before I'd asked them.

So it looks like I have a reading deficiency, which I've got to admit annoys the hell out of me, because if the thread is of a manageable length, I do try to read the whole thing before I post.
 
Q: Who was driving?

Perhaps Lieberman's driver is handicapped. If so maybe Joe should be awarded bonus points for hiring the disabled... ;-)

Just kidding. All I'm saying is, I'd like find out more about what happened before I jump to any conclusions. ("No man, it's the smoking gun!! Joe has contempt for the disabled!")
 
RD is right (that maybe his driver is disabled), and it's entirely possible that there was a hanging placard from the rear view mirror. I have disabled plates now, but before then I used the hanging thing. Because I'm fairly young and my car looks like a "young person's car," people would give me stupid looks when they'd see me in my car in a handicapped parking space--at least until I got out of the car and walked.
It's incredibly irresponsible to post this without knowing for sure that he in fact DID park illegally in a handicapped spot. And seriously, you can't believe this is an anomaly. I see cars w/o handicapped plates or placards in h/c spots ALL THE TIME in Washington DC. I mean ALL the time.
This is just sloppy, vicious posting.
 
It's okay -- Joe's sponsoring a bill to make this retroactively legal.
 
lvp and rd have a point. I'm no Leiberman fan, quite the opposite in fact. But unless the photographer got a shot of the inside of the car through the windshield, and can show that there was no handicapped placard hanging from the rear view mirror, these photos don't constitute presentation of a clear case of cheating.

If you're driving someone who's handicapped, and they have their placard with them, you can legally use the handicapped space for their convenience.

Also, my wife (who has a placard because of MS) has told me that even if the placard isn't on the mirror -- say, you forgot to hang it up there -- police are supposed to check to see if it is lying around inside the car, like on the console or the front seat.

Bottom line, even if Joe was cheating (after all, that is "what he does"), he could *claim* that a handicapped person was in the car, and there was a placard there, so the use of the space was perfectly legitimate.

Hadassah has convinced him that he really can ignore all the rules.
 
I was at an event at the SEIU union hall in Hartford last month and he did the same thing.Parked in the handicapped spot.
When Lamont came he parked over with the proletariat.
By the way,most of the folks there work with differantly abled people, which just shows how truly clueless Joe Lieberman is.
 
Another reason to dump Cheney Halliburton troll, Joe LieberBush.

BTW, I just sent this blog entry to Keith Olbermann in the hopes that he makes Joe LieberBush the 'worst person in the world' for Tuesday.

As I understand it Senators are exempt from most parking codes, as are fireman, policemen and the like.

If you encounter other people parked without a permit in disability parking spaces, please take a photo and submit it to http://caughtya.org, a site dedicated to expose just such abuse.
