Occasionally working with the White House but still at odds with Democrats, Senator/yambag Joe Lieberman tries to overcome his past as a sanctimonious, repuke-kissing douchebag.
"There's a certain irony to this," Lieberman says. "I have been called in to help the Obama Administration for the very reason that has made some Democrats unhappy with me, which is that I have ongoing, trusting relationships with some of the Republicans, that I endorsed John McCain – who almost picked me as his VP – that I gave then-president Bush the horsey ride of his life, that I attacked President Obama, called Democrats ‘untrustworthy, terrorist-loving death-panel socialists’, counseled Sarah Palin, called Democrats 'effete, soft-on-terror schlemiels,' and worked hard to keep Lindsey Graham’s name off the front pages after his little contretemps at that orphanage in Basra."Dems say Lieberman is partly to blame for his isolation. “Guy’s a fucking dickbag. He’s a rethuglican rump-swabbing traitor and can kiss my pearly puckered ass," says someone who knows him well.
