Joe Lieberman and The Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Joe Lieberman officially said “My Friends” 57 times during his speech tonight addressing the Republican National Convention, breaking John McCain’s previous record of 49. And he did it, somehow, in a more whiny, nasal manner.

My count might be off, I did fall asleep more than once during his rousing testimony to what a fine leader McCain is. It wasn’t my fault that I nodded off – I drank 3 Red Bulls in preparation for his speech. But let’s face it: Joe Lieberman is Burgess Meredith minus the testosterone. And the charm. And the other qualities that define a living organism. And the longer I listened, as I teetered in and out between the world of reality and the world of dreams, the more his speech began to play over and over in my head, like a tiny tape (or iPOD) recording saying, “If you’re a Democrat, sleep…sleep, and when you wake up, you’ll be one of us.” Then I noticed the giant seed pod growing next to me and screamed.

I do remember (or did I imagine?) him saying at one point that he wanted to “say a few words about John’s running mate.” Not a difficult challenge there. That’s all anyone could manage – a few words – because her curriculum vitae is as short as the list of promises the Republicans have keep over the past 7 years.

“Join us, whether you’re a Reagan Democrat, or a Clinton Democrat…Love, desire, ambition, faith – without them, life’s so simple, believe me. Corporations and the market place will take care of everything–”

–STOP IT JOE! – GET OUT OF MY MIND!!!

  1. I wonder if they have McCain and Lieberman on the same anti-dymentia pills they used to keep Reagan from running around pantsless and talking in mono-syllabic baby noises.

  2. I really wanted Lieberman on the ticket. He and McCain would be like the two old muppet guys in the balcony… minus the humor.

    Bruce: Ah, exactly! …and I understand McCain wanted him too, but the handlers said NO.

  4. Not ‘Bodysnatchers.’ More like “The Awakening.” Because Lieberman has finally woken up to the sound of the loons in his former party. Many more level-headed donkeycrats will also wake up and smell the crybaby doo-doo wafting from Obama’s diapers November 4th.

    Briguy: C’mon, you didn’t put your heart into that post – you didn’t even call be a defeatocrat.

    For November, at worst: Obama, 307; McSame, 227.

    Read it and weep.
