For Once, I Agree With Joe Lieberman

On a radio show today, Joe Lieberman was asked, “Is [Obama] a Marxist as Bill Kristol says might be the case in today’s New York Times?”

To which Lieberman responded, “Well, you know, I must say that’s a good question.”

I agree.

Don’t worry; I don’t think Obama actually is a Marxist. Nor am I likely to start siding with Joe Lieberman. No, I think it’s a great question to ask because a) I know the answer, and b) I think asking that question is going to be dangerous for just about everyone whose name isn’t Obama.

I mean, let’s face it, Obama’s not the Teflon candidate, but his political chops at defending himself are turning out to be uncommonly good. He seems to treat most attacks and controversies like Muhammed Ali, letting his opponents punch themselves out for a bit and coming back with some solid force.

Granted, like the supporter of just about any candidate ever, I don’t like it when the horse I’ve picked gets attacked, but I’m slowly learning to relax every time something hits the wires against Obama. I still get that foreboding sense, you know, “Oh no, he’s not coming back from this one,” but then he does.

So, if you want to go ahead and be caught trying to tag Obama as a communist, feel free. Just remember, he’s survived being called a Manchurian Radical Islamofacist, a Black Racist Christian, and he seems to even be doing well with a bunch of rich folks calling him an elitist.

Somehow, I don’t think trying to pin him as a Marxist is going to sink his campaign.

    The implication of such a question is offensive. What’s next from Lieberman, did Obama beat his wife? Did Obama write “Mein Kampf”? Does Obama echo rightwing talking points as easily as me?

    What a craven fuckhead Lieberman is.

  2. See, and there you go. I wrote the way I wrote because I kinda ran out of ways to call Lieberman a lying ass-munch. Creativity, we has it.

    I was about to write a post simply asking Lieberman to fuck himself, but you beat me to it with this story.

    What an asshole Joe is. Seriously.


    Seriously, take your creepy frog voice and your strange obsession with blowing things up, and get fucked already.
