WASHINGTON, DC – Senator Joe Lieberman has said he will sink the health care bill, just to be a rebel.
“You don’t know me! I don’t live by your rules! You can’t box me in with your labels. I will break out of your box. You can’t control me, I’m Joe Lieberman!” This was the scene Tuesday as Joe Lieberman was escorted from the Senate by guards, wearing a leather jacket that didn’t fit right. When asked what happened Security confirmed that Mr. Lieberman had asked to be led from the room by Security personnel, and directly to the cameras.
Lieberman, in keeping with his recent tradition, has sided with the Republicans yet again. This time he is threatening to vote against the Health Care bill if it has the Public Option attached to it. Taking the Senate floor, wearing his ill-sized leather coat and dark sunglasses, Lieberman said, “The Public Option is for socialists and squares!”
Critics claim that Lieberman is shifting to the Republican ranks so he can be the ‘coolest’ senator in the group. His transition began when Harry Reid started driving his Harley to Capital Hill every morning. That morning Reid was given Lieberman’s seat at the Democrat table in the Senate Cafeteria. Tensions have been escalating between Lieberman and the Democrats ever since.
Now Lieberman is the new It-Senator of the Republican party. Other Republicans are tripping over themselves to validate of Joe Lieberman. Amongst the group there is a much lower bar and Lieberman easily has the best jokes. Longtime friends have tried to tell Joe that the GOP is only interested in his vote, however he appears unreceptive.
Last night Joe Lieberman and several other Senators were seen driving through gated residential areas in Virginia knocking over mailboxes and drafting conservative legislation.
