It Started With A Kiss



It started with a kiss (of death)...


...Other memories, a few tender moments with the Saudis...







I wonder whose more jealous, Crown Prince Abdullah, or Holy Joe?

Well, it looks as if Joe (Holy Joe) Lieberman went down tonight in Connecticut to Ned (Nedraline) Lamont, TKO'd in the 15th round in the Connecticut primary. It's a great day for Democrats and the Left in general. It's also a bellweather of change that has come again to the country; there's no longer the flag-waving, SUV driving, yipee support for an illegal war (even electric cars are back now!), and politicians that snuggle up with Bush, especially Democrat ones, are going to pay a price. Fortunately, we don't have too many of those, of which Lieberman was the prime example, and now he's flat out on the canvas. Lieberman, in typical fashion though, will now disregard the years of support and money that he has received from the Democratic Party, and continue to run as an independent in the general election in November. It only proves that he's always been an opportunist, whose primary constituency has always been, you guessed it, Joe Lieberman. The Democratic voters of Connecticut have rejected his policies, his kissy-kissy relationship with Bush, and especially his stance as pro-war, pro-Bush cheerleader and Republican-Lite DINO (Democrat in name only), yet Holy Joe will trudge on. It won't help though; in November Republicans will vote for Republicans, Democrats for Democrats and Ned Lamont, and Lieberman will pull in only a few marginal votes. It's all over, Holy Joe.

There is blood in the water now, and to think that it all started with a kiss.

I guess he should've kept it in the closet...
Why was the president kissing Liberman any way? I mean in SA whe might be able to say that men hold hands when they want something or the other, but...why is Bush kissing Liberman?

Well, I'd say Bush kissed him as a sign of gratitude for Lieberman's continued support of Bush and his war policies. Lieberman's another one of those people that can't admit that they chose the wrong side of that issue and now won't back away from it, no matter how many die along the way.

Those Saudi pictures have always chilled me; when I think about war for oil, about very rich dynasties (Bush, House of Saud) locked together in a relationship of global wealth, and how the Saudis have funded terrorism via other states and groups, including attacks on U.S. troops in Iraq most likely; the sight of those two strolling together blissfully is just incredible, and it really also just says it all.

You know something funny? Here in NY today it was the repuclicans who were up in arms. Comdemning the voters.
Yesterday Hiliary Clinton's camp was campaigning with Liberman. Today she made a 5k donation to Lamont. Yeesh.

Yeah, I heard that Hillary was supporting Lieberman during the primary race, but that she would then support whoever won that race, which happened to be Lamont. Kind of hedging your bet, you might say, but she has to support the Dem. nominee for the general election, which is Lamont. Not sure what the NY Repubs are up in arms about regarding this, as they have way many problems of their own right now, especially that big one residing at the 'ol White House.
