A group of individuals, coming together as one, to proclaim the undeniable (and scientifically verifiable) fact that Senator Joseph Isadore Lieberman is, in fact, a Grade A Douchebag.
If you agree, go join the Facebook group “Joe Lieberman Is A Douchebag.”
There are many reasons why Lieberman is a douche bag.
In addition to actively arguing in favor of invading Iraq, campaigning for John McCain and Sarah Palin and pledging to continue campaigning against Democrats and for Republicans, actively warmongering against Iran, Lieberman plans to vote against the health care bill because it contains a public option, stating that no reform is better than a bill which contains a public option. His principles are backed by millions of dollars in campaign donations from the private health care industry which employs his wife at a health care lobbying firm.
Back in 2003 he supported “the illegal political intervention in the private and legally protected decisions” in the Terri Schiavo feeding-tube dispute, and “he went out of his way to defend it. On national television.”
And let’s not forget that despite being chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Lieberman never saw fit to conduct a single hearing or investigation of the Bush administration yet held a hearing on October 22, 2009 “to explore the role of “czars” in the executive branch.”
And apparently “Holy Joe” only “supports the troops” when there is a Republican administration.
ADDITIONAL UPDATE: MoveOn.org is raising money “to make sure every voter in Connecticut knows what he’s doing. And then, when he comes up for re-election, we’ll make sure we send him home for good.” Donate to the Help Beat Joe Lieberman fund today!
FURTHER ADDITIONAL UPDATE: MoveOn.org had an initial goal of $400,000 but in a matter of days has raised over $1 million to defeat Lieberman.
