Time To Boycott Nutmeg, Nutmeg State



In September, Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman was suggesting buying into Medicare as a replacement for a public option and now he is against it.

I am more than a little tired of this little bully.

It is like his insurance pimps are threatening to sell his family into slavery or something.

They said if any of the Ds were upset after the last meeting they weren’t showing it. What they need is solidarity against this little dictator. Take his chairmanships away. He doesn’t deserve them anyway.

And we know that it doesn’t matter what the committee is, he will find a way to make anything the rest of us want apply to his chairmanship. His committee will stick health care or terror on any and all subjects.

My husband is really, really PO’d about taking the buy-in off the table. He was all set to put me on Medicare. My health care, as a spouse, is going way up.

I am about to call his highness to let him know that it is more than bad enough that the guys who actually appear on my ballot screw me over on every issue, but it is worse when an idiot that I can never vote for or against keeps doing it.

You can’t call him because his message box is full or they aren’t taking calls.

  1. Hey Karen:
    Great piece! Here’s the deal with Joey: He’s trying to play both sides of the aisle. This jerk just wants to make sure he’s on the right (or left) side. He’s a wimp who won’t stand for anything except that which makes him look like a smart politician (are there any smart politicians?). And that’s the key word: POLITICIAN! That’s all he and most of those arrogant pompous asses in D. C. are. A terrorist character in a recent book I read nailed it: “American politicians are more interested in being re-elected than they are service the people who elected them.” Amen!

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
