If the Blogosphere Could Cry...
You probably remember how in the film Star Wars when Darth Vader blew up the planet Alderaan, Obi Wan Kenobi felt a disturbance in the Force from the death and destruction "as if a million voices cried out and were suddenly silenced." In much the same way, a disturbance was felt across the blogosphere today, as Joe Lieberman retained his senate chairmanship. It was as if a million liberal bloggers cried out and were suddenly silenced.
Well, not really. In fact, liberals have exploded over the issue. They want blood, snot and other vital bodily fluids in payment for Lieberman's continued blasphemy against the Democratic party. And today, Harry Reid announced that in a closed-door party meeting, Democratic Senators voted by secret ballot to allow Lieberman to keep his chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee.
The damp-eyed, three-hankey lamentations can be seen at MyLeftNutSmeg here and here.
CTBob expresses his grief here.
CTNewsJunk reports that Connecticut Democrats are still hoping to bitch-slap the insolent Lieberman in a way their national colleagues could not find the backbone to do.
Audrey Blondin, a member of the Democratic State Central Committee is the chief proponent behind the continued effort by state Democrats to get revenge from Lieberman. You may watch Ms. Blondin, courtesy of CTNEWSJunkie rage against the devilish Lieberman below. Try not to be distracted by the Pepto Bismol-colored blazer.
The moth-ball scented men in plaid pants in the audience who had not fallen asleep with their hair pieces flopping over actually managed to applaud her.
National Democrats have proved once again they have no political sack. And our state liberals continue to piss themselves in anger over Lieberman.
Am I wrong to enjoy it? If I am, I don't want to be right.
