May the Road Rise Up to Meet You, Lying Joe Lieberman

May the Road Rise Up to Meet You, Lying Joe Lieberman
By Jon Schwarz


As of noon ET, Joe Lieberman will no longer be a U.S. senator. I hope we can all take a moment today to stop and remember his deep, lifelong commitment to lying.

You could fill a book with Lieberman's lies, but the most impressive ones have been about Iraq and its supposed weapons of mass destruction. Of course, many U.S. politicians lied about this before we invaded in 2003 – but Lieberman stands apart in his willingness to continue lying just as blatantly about it after the war, when all the facts had been established, up to the present day.

Here's Lieberman on Morning Joe in 2011:

LIEBERMAN: ...the evidence is very clear that (Saddam) was developing weapons of mass destruction...Charles Duelfer conducted the most comprehensive report on behalf of our government...he found, and proved I think, that Saddam...was developing chemical and biological weapons.


Lieberman followed that up by mansplaining this issue to Arianna Huffington, who was on the same program:

HUFFINGTON: It was stunning to hear you say that there was evidence that Saddam Hussein was working on weapons of mass destruction, given that even President Bush himself has now accepted that there had been no evidence. So on what basis are you saying that?

LIEBERMAN: I'm basing it on the so-called Duelfer Report. Charles D-U-E-L-F-E-R conducted the most comprehensive report on behalf of our government…

HUFFINGTON: Well, based on this completely unfounded assumption, I sincerely hope for the sake of the country that you do not become Secretary of Defense.

LIEBERMAN: Now Arianna, these are not unfounded. Go read the Duelfer Report.

HUFFINGTON: There is nothing in the report that proves anything that you have said.

LIEBERMAN: I don't think you've read it, sweetheart.


The report to which Lieberman was referring was produced by the CIA's Iraq Survey Group, headed by Charles Duelfer. (That's D-U-E-L-F-E-R, for any of you ladies having trouble wrapping your pretty little heads around this.) .........(more)

1. It's a wonder Arianna didn't rise up and strangle Joe (was he off camera?).

3. holy crap, how did I miss this?

he actually spelled out the name, and called her sweetheart.

and notice how his tone is serious with Pat Buchanan. Hey, he might be a Nazi but at least he's not a chick.

4. Is this a typo in the article?

"... that up by mansplaining this issue ..."

or is there some new trend of "Mansplaining" I'm unaware of?
