Shorter Joe Lieberman

Let’s all come together as Americans … and slander the Democratic Presidential candidate, whom I called “a blessing” two years ago.

In times of crisis, we must set aside all that divides us, and come together as Americans, unlike the slimy little worm running for President on the Democratic ticket.

Yes, I called him “a blessing” two years ago, but that was then, and this is now.


Truly, it’s impossible to spell “Lieberman” without “Lie.”
