“I’m sure that our enemies are cheering now as a result of this decision.”

Former Senator –Traitor Joe, on Fox News (of course) talking about The Kenyan’s decision to seek Congressional approval instead of just attacking Syria. Traitor Joe is now a practicing attorney and frequently whispered candidate to replace Janet Napolitano at the Department of Homeland Security.

Traitor Joe Speaks!

Quisling turd and holier-than-thou Senator Joe Lieberman is quite angry with Kenyan Usurper Hawaiian Devil Baby Barack Obama. It seems that Traitor Joe wants to call a spade a spade, ahem:

“The administration still refuses to call our enemy in this war by its proper name: violent Islamist extremism.”

Did you know, anytime you say violent Islamist extremism AIPac gives Traitor Joe a buck?

(The Hill)

Traitor Joe tells us…

…why we can’t have nice things anymore. A clue: Islam.

I want to indicate today to my colleagues that Senator Coburn and I are working again on a bipartisan proposal to secure Social Security over the long term, we hope to have that done in time. To also forward to the special committee for their consideration. So, bottom line, we can’t protect these entitlements and also have the national defense we need to protect us in a dangerous world while we’re at war with Islamist extremists who attacked us on 9/11 and will be for a long time to come.

I’m so glad this assrocket is not going up for re-election and is stepping down in 2012.

Traitor Joe wants a 4th war?

Two out of three stooges on Fox news wanna bomb Iraq. (Walnuts was on another channel.) So here’s Senatorette Miss Lindsey “Ham Biscuits” Graham and her prince consort Traitor Joe insisting we start a 4th, parallel war in the Mid-East, this time with Iran.

As we said way back in one of the earliest posts, the only winner in our war against Iraq is Iran.

What are words for…

…if no one listens anymore?

A Senate proposal that has become known as the Internet “kill switch” bill was reintroduced this week, with a tweak its backers say eliminates the possibility of an Egypt-style disconnection happening in the United States.

As CNET reported last month, the 221-page bill hands Homeland Security the power to issue decrees to certain privately owned computer systems after the president declares a “national cyberemergency.” A section in the new bill notes that does not include “the authority to shut down the Internet,” and the name of the bill has been changed to include the phrase “Internet freedom.”

That has a strange, Orwellian ring to it, like something from the Chimpy Dynasty, doesn’t it? Who could do such a thing?

“The emergency measures in our bill apply in a precise and targeted way only to our most critical infrastructure,” Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said yesterday about the legislation she is sponsoring with Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn). “We cannot afford to wait for a cyber 9/11 before our government finally realizes the importance of protecting our digital resources.”

Ah, the magic touch of Traitor Joe and Susan Collins, coming up with a way to strip us of our free speech rights. Now it makes sense.

Please, Please, Please

Traitor Joe is expected to announce he is retiring and will not run for re-election.

I’m guessing this is BS. Maybe he is not running for re-election as an Independent or a Dim, but I doubt that Mr. I’m Still Relevent will not run as a GOPer. It’s sort of like this past term was his Pre-Op, living as a GOPer, and now he’s gonna get the chop and become one. That or maybe he’s caught up in the Swiss Bank scandal that is breaking.

At any rate, I’m hoping the news is right. I’d love to see his catfish-like mug off the national stage.

DADT Repeal

The DADT repeal is set to be voted on at noon PT (3PM ET) today. Earlier today the filibuster was defeated (sorry Grandpa Walnuts, but you’re a dinosaur thrashing about in the tar at this point).

If you are active duty in the military, don’t raise your rainbow flag just yet: the repeal really only sets the date for pulling back this Clinton era travesty. You can still be dismissed.

Kudos to Traitor Joe (as much as it kills me to say it), he came through.

Apocalypse this instant

I agree with Traitor Joe:

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), who’s been pushing for a vote this weekend on DADT repeal, told MSNBC Thursday that the START treaty would still be ratified by the new Republican-heavy Senate that will be sworn in on Jan. 5 — and thus isn’t as pressing as DADT during the lame duck.

DADT repeal may pass the new Senate, but its prospects are a lot less assured. And besides, whatever bill the next Senate passes (if it does pass a bill) would have to be approved by the new Republican-controlled House, where the chances for repeal are expected to be really grim.

With that in mind, Lieberman said, DADT really should come first. His spokesperson, Erika Masonhall, put the position succinctly.

“The votes for repeal will be there,” she said, referring to the current Congress. “Why delay the vote any longer?”
