Ye Olde Scribe’s Incredible, Inedible Quote Machine
“Joe Lieberman: eating his own credibility as a civilized human being and a Jew one hypocritical word at a time.”
One poster’s satire on Joe’s all too real whining about no Dem leader/politician being willing to consult him during elections anymore.
Well, the “me” decade is almost over, and good riddance, and far as I’m concerned. The 00’s were simply 10 years of people thinking of nothing but themselves. No wonder we were unable to get together and solve any of the many serious problems facing our nation. Oh sure, some people did do some positive things in the 00’s – like jogging – but always for the wrong reasons, for their own selfish, personal benefit. Well, I believe the 10’s are gonna have to be different. I think that people are going to stop thinking about themselves, and start thinking about me, Joe Lieberman. That’s right. I believe we’re entering what I like to call the Joe Lieberman Decade. Oh, for me, Joe Lieberman, the 10’s will be pretty much the same as the 00’s. I’ll still be thinking of me, Joe Lieberman. But for you, you’ll be thinking more about how things affect me, Joe Lieberman. When you see a news report, you’ll be thinking, “I wonder what Joe Lieberman thinks about this thing?”, “I wonder how this health insurance reform thing is hurting Joe Lieberman?” And you women will be thinking, “What can I wear that will please Joe Lieberman?”, or “What can I not wear?” You know, I know a lot of you out there are thinking, “Why Joe Lieberman?” Well, because I thought of it, and I’m on TV, so I’ve already gotten the jump on you. So, I say let’s leave behind the fragmented, selfish 00’s, and go into the 80’s with a unity and purpose. That’s what I think. I’m Joe Lieberman.
