Mind Reading

Readers of this blog (are there any?) know that I generally resist mind reading. As in, "John McCain doesn't like his campaign's negative turn." How do you know, PunditDude?

But I would like to know what JoeMentum himself, Joe Lieberman, is thinking these days. His choice to back McCain looks like a really bad bet at this point, no? He makes all those appearances, on stage with McCain, when McCain calls Obama a "socialist," because Obama would increase the marginal tax rate for those with incomes more than $250,000 by about 3% for taxable income over $250,000. Now, I'm no expert on socialism . . . but that doesn't look like socialism to me. Nationalizing the financial sector, maybe socialism. But Lieberman smiles, and claps, even though he was on a ticket just 8 years ago that opposed those tax cuts. Wasn't he?

Didn't Lieberman clap when Al Gore talked about "the people versus the powerful," or whatever it was? Because he chuckles and goes along with McCain now when he argues for cutting the capital gains and corporate income taxes . . . for siding with the powerful.

And, he drags his wife along. Does she agree with this?

Any mind readers out there who can tell me WTF is going on?

Hmmm...Lieberman is an [insert expletive here] with a vacuum in the place where one would expect to find his principles. But at this point, it's too late to go back. He's turned to the dark side and he can't change his mind, so all he can do is hope that the rabid Republican core will 'keep' him down the road.

Well I for one NEVER read this crappy blog. But my entire (extended) family seems to. And they're all going to be really pissed about the nasty tenor of this post, re Holy Joe.

Who can forget that mighty oracle dealing the death card to Darth Cheney in the 2000 VP debate, or boldly conceding the illegal military votes during the recount, or strutting nobly while his DHS proposal was stripped of civil service protections, or gamely standing up to the terrorism-lovers in his own party!? Not I! Keep prayin' Holy Joe, you never stand so tall as when you're on your knees.

No Holy Joe fans around here, I guess.
