Does everyone remember this classic Joe Lieberman moment? The moment when election 2000 slipped away from the pants down spanking it should have been?
LIEBERMAN.... I think if you asked most people in America today that famous question that Ronald Reagan asked, "Are you better off today than you were eight years ago?" Most people would say yes. I'm pleased to see, Dick, from the newspapers that you're better off than you were eight years ago, too.
CHENEY: I can tell you, Joe, the government had absolutely nothing to do with it. (LAUGHTER) (APPLAUSE)
MODERATOR: This question is to you.
LIEBERMAN: I can see my wife and I think she's saying, "I think he should go out into the private sector."
CHENEY: I'll help you do that, Joe.
Does everyone remember Joe smiling like a retarded garden gnome while this was going on? While the studio audience was laughing at his prime time debate stupidity? Does everyone remember the national hurricane center going to red alert as the barometer dropped suddenly as one hundred million Democrats suddenly, in unison, gasped at the sudden realization of what a shockingly, horrendously moronic running mate Al Gore had chosen?
Hey, Joe, since your brain and your mouth haven't amounted to much more than a punchline at Republican cocktail parties, if you really want to be a tough guy and a hawk on "defense", make yourself finally usefull. Pick up a weapon.
Or shut the fuck up.
