There’s talk about whether Joe Lieberman should stay a Democrat or a not. If I can have a vote, I say he should stay a Democrat. He votes like a Democrat except on the war (which should never have been a partisan issue), so that’s his best fit. Now that the Democrats are going to be fully in charge, they’re going to have to mature a bit and ignore the howler monkey left, and that’s where Lieberman can lead.
“Won’t the Democrats be mean to him?” you ask.
Yes, they will. They’ll call him names, push him around, and blame all wars on him for being a Jew. He needs to persevere, though, and to help I’ll give him some advice that worked for me when I was a kid and had to deal with bullies: If someone is being mean to you, you take a stick and whap him really hard in the face. Then you repeat that over and over until you see blood. Then you make a high-pitched laugh.
Works every time.
