The last gasp of a dying man

Praying that no one notices

Joe Lieberman – grabbing at straws and going out with dignity:

The bitter Democratic Senate primary in Connecticut erupted in fresh controversy Wednesday over a doctored photo of Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (D-Conn.) in blackface that was posted by a blogger who has been an influential promoter of challenger Ned Lamont.

Lieberman angrily demanded that Lamont denounce the action and sever all ties with Jane Hamsher, the founder of the Web log Firedoglake, who posted the photo on another blog, HuffingtonPost.com. She travels with the campaign along with other bloggers. She is not on the campaign staff but has actively promoted Lamont’s candidacy and helped raise money for him through her blog.

Lieberman responded indignantly after the photo posting was revealed. “This is one of the most disgusting and hurtful images that has been used in American history, it’s deeply offensive to people of all colors, and it has absolutely no place in the political arena today,” he said in a statement issued by his campaign.

Lieberman called on Lamont to ban Hamsher from traveling with the campaign, refuse to take any money raised by Hamsher and remove any links to her postings on his Web site.

This is one of the most disgusting and hurtful images that has been used in American history…

Really? I thought this was one of the most digusting and hurtful images in American history:

I’m Joe Lieberman and I approve of this war

Wait. Maybe it’s this one:

Joe Lieberman went to war and all I got was my parents slaughtered

No. It’s definitely this one

“Joe Lieberman said to tell you that it’s for the best. Now just move on with your life”

Here are 2577 Americans who won’t be voting for Joe

It sure beats the hell out of talking about support for a failed war, lying about Social Security, and a callous disregard for rape victims.
