Lieberman: "If I lose in November, I'll just start my own government"

Okay, I'm just kidding! But here's a funny article from Huffington Post:

Jerry and Joe Long: Lieberman Vows To Stay In Senate Forever

HARTFORD...A defiant Joseph Lieberman, with William Bennett choking back tears at his side, vowed last night that he will remain in office "for ever and ever and ever".

Lieberman, hailed as 'the conscience of the Senate' because he doesn't deposit his insurance and pharmaceutical campaign checks after sundown Friday, insisted he would triumph. "The voters may have spoken", he bleated, "but only I know what they meant".

2. Why Do Rudolph Hess Jokes Come to Mind?
This fixation on power and disregard for the rules of elections seems to argue for a basic lack of regard for democracy.

Is this Joe showing a small belief in common with Bush -- i.e., unwillingness to relinquish power despite the election laws?

Weird. Authoritarian, faintly fascist, and weird.
