Joe-mentum! (Or, why Joe Lieberman is such a loser)

Wow, how pathetic is this guy? First off, he practically moved to New Hampshire this month, having arrived there to start campaigning 5 weeks ago. He garnered 9% of the vote, just over 2,000 votes.

According to exit polling, Lieberman, an orthodox ***, didn't even win the Jewish vote - that went to Kerry (an Irish Catholic) and Gen. Clark.

Secondly, he's been using the term "Joe-mentum" to describe his campaign.

And thirdly, I can't decide whether he reminds me more of Huckleberry Hound or Willie from "Alf".

During his interview last night on CNN, I kept thinking to myself, "how can a democrat support nearly every single thing that I'm against?". If I was Smeg, I would easily be able to answer that question. But I'm a Democrat!

Right down the line, I disagree with his positions - nearly every single one of them.

How is this surprising? Politically this guy is practically a Republican and you find it unusual that rank and file Democrats don't vote for the guy?

Gee, who'da thunk?

Does this mean we can start making fun of all the funny words Bush says?

Wait, they do that already

Even if he did won the primary he won't win the election, the country is not going to vote for a *** or other minorities as president, I give it at least another 30 years. Or if a minority did win, I give it 2 months before he gets assassinated. Sad but true.

Racial and religious minorities? Pfaw, we have a long way to go before the public of this nation would ever accept that.

How do I know?

Poles fought in the revolution. Heck, we even had two polish generals who won a critical battle and went on to help found West Point. Yet how many Polish presidents have we had?

We had so many Germans in the beginning that the founding fathers toyed with the idea of choosing German as our national language. Heck, Germans fought on both sides of the revolution (like English-descended folks). I can't think off the top of my head, but if we've had more than one German American president in all our history I'd be very suprised.

And mind you, those two are amoung the larger, and certainly oldest "ethnic" minorities. If we can't elect a German or Pole, what chance would a black, hispanic or Jewish candidate really have? Speaking of which, blacks and Jews also fought in the revolution.

Bah.

Lieberman lost because he didn't go ultra-liberal in order to garner the typical activist voter that participates in primaries. Oh well. Any bets on who's the next to fall? Kucinich? Edwards? Clark?

Clark. Edwards will drop out if he loses South Carolina, but I think he'll take it. Clark is going to go oh-fer next week (with a close call in Oklahoma), and run home crying. Kucinich is in it for the long haul as is Lieberman, specifically to keep the extremes of the party aware of the race.

If I implied that Germans were THE oldest, then I mispoke and apologize. But anyone around for the revolution counts as amoung the "oldest" and as far as I know, the Hessians were not the only Germanic peoples around (although they were certinly the only ones with the redcoats).

so you are speaking from a purely american national identity perspective?

oldest in terms of their presence in the new world/north america/something like that?

Yeah, this guy is about as out of touch with the goals of his party as George Bush is with the goals of the Republican party.

He's got too much class for the Democratic party. He should switch parties. Centrist/Moderates are an endangered species in the DNC. Leiberman needs to pull a Steve Simon and switch to the GOP.

As Zell Miller said "I didn't leave the Democratic party, the Democratic party left me"

He'd so win, against anybody. Is it me, or does mostly everyone regard that man as a true legend?
