One Fewer Shanda Fur die Goyim ⃰

Joe Lieberman (יִמַּח שְׁמו) has died at the age of 82.

He rose to prominence by defeating the last decent Republican in the Senate™, Lowell Weiker in 1988 with enormous help from movement nutjob right wing Republicans like William F. Buckley.

Once he entered the Senate, he spent most of the time stabbing his Democratic colleagues in the back, culminating in his behavior in the 2000 election, when, as Al Gore's running mate, he blithely supported the theft of the election in Florida in the hope that he could be the nominee in 2004.

Along the way, he made the PATRIOT act worse, neutered environmental regulation, worked to prevent a public option in healthcare, opposed lowering the Medicare eligibility age, supported the Iraq war until the bitter end, and routinely accused people who disagreed with him of being traitors.

He abandoned all pretense of being a Democrat after his failed bid for the Democratic nomination in 2004, and lost the Senate primary in 2006, but refiled as an independent and ran as an independent and won the general election.

He was a smarmy sanctimonious, holier than thou hypocrite, but by exiting this world he has finally done something to make this world a better place.
