They’re not booing, they’re going Boooooooosh

If the GOP nominates an over-tanned, teary-eyed, chinless wonder in 2012 the material is going to seem awfully stale. If the Republicans would be so kind as to keep the talk shows ass-deep in Eric Cantor or Adam Putman it would help.
And speaking of ripe targets, even as Bush was booed and people pointed and laughed at Dick "Mr. Potter Blofeld Strangelove Judge Doom Big Lebowski Ironside" Cheney, there was one man particularly beloved by the millions on the National Mall via National Review blogger Yuval Levin:

The loudest boos, to my surprise, were not for Bush and Cheney, who got plenty, but for Joe Lieberman when he was shown on the huge television screens — more than one voice could be heard shouting “traitor” around where I was standing…
Welcome to the rest of your life Joe, and you didn’t even get a dinner out of it.
