The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

Lieberman Watch

Holy Joe Lieberman is in deep do-do. After betraying the Democrats and actively campaigning for John McCain, the Democrats can do whatever they want to him.

The Republicans purportedly want him to caucus with them, but won’t give him the minority leadership role in any committees. (And I doubt very much that they really like him. No one likes a mealy mouthed turncoat.) And even if he caucuses with them, it’s not like he’s going to go all anti-choice, anti-gay, anti-democrat. He votes with Democrats most of the time, with the bizarre exception of the Iraq war. So, even if he caucuses with the repubs, he will tend to vote against the repubs most of the time.

I think the Democrats should strip away all leadership roles. After all, he’s not a Democrat any more and he didn’t support the party when they needed him – in fact, he supported the Republican instead of the Democrat. And he showed Obama no respect and blatantly lied about Obama – despite the fact that Obama endorsed Lieberman during Lieberman’s own primary. Holy Joe took a dump in his own shorts; now he should be made to wear them.
