Holy Joe Lieberman Pledges To Filibuster Public Option

Via Think Progress:

P.S. There were 39 Democrats who voted against The Affordable Health Care for America Act today, including Dennis Kucinich. Dennis Kucinich voted against it because it did not adopt single-payer.

On the other hand, there were 23 cobags who voted for the odious Stupak amendment and then voted against the Health Care Act even after their stupid amendment was added:

Jason Altmire (PA-04)
John Barrow (GA-12)
John Boccieri (OH-16)
Dan Boren (OK-02)
Bobby Bright (AL-02)
Ben Chandler (KY-06)
Travis Childers (MS-01)
Artur Davis (AL-07)
Lincoln Davis (TN-04)
Bart Gordon (TN-06)
Parker Griffith (AL-05)
Tim Holden (PA-17)
Jim Marshall (GA-08)
Jim Matheson (UT-02)
Mike McIntyre (NC-07)
Charlie Melancon (LA-03)
Collin Peterson (MN-07)
Mike Ross (AR-04)
Heath Shuler (NC-11)
Ike Skelton (MO-04)
John Tanner (TN-08)
Gene Taylor (MS-04)
Harry Teague (NM-02)

Gee, close vote there Dennis, you dick.

Dennis is holier than thou, and Mao. Et cetera.

But you're right, this was an awfully close vote for his prima donna act.

It's those other clowns who really frost my flakes, though. I'm almost certain that if I went through my Act Blue contributions from 2006, I'd see something for Heath Shuler, and probably others from among those 23.

I want revenge!

Can sissy-pants girly-men (but not in a "gay" way) hate women too?

An interesting question, M.B.

In my attempt to answer it, I posted the 7th comment on an old S,N! thread.

So no, I don't have an answer, but I did find the short thread.

Well, no wonder you're so angry; giving money to these, these ...

Crap, it's a cold day in L. A. when I attach my name to some effing stupid useless on-line petition.

Perpetuating the system w/ $$. Is there no shame? (Rhetorical.)

So thunder, you're trying to even further irk Pinko by pointing out the days when Sadly used to complain about 3Bulls' traffic?

You're heartless.

If 3Bulls! had doodle money featuring a panty-wearing spider, I'm sure their traffic would soar.

Like an eagle!

But then I fear Jennifer would hate them with a cold, eternal hate.

I heard that...

Stupak is my rep. His campaign reelection sign said: "Bart - You Betcha!"

Must. Move. Away.
