Joe Lieberman, Worst Person Ever, Pimps Book in NYC Tonight

Senator Joseph "That Idiot" Lieberman is pimping his book, “The Gift of Rest: Rediscovering the Beauty of the Sabbath," up at the Yeshiva University's Lamport Auditorium (Amsterdam Ave. at 187th St.) at 6:30 tonight. I'm trying to think of anyone more terrible than him, and I'm failing. Anyway, just thought you should know. By which I mean, in case you want to go (peacefully) shout at him.

I'm curious why you think Joe Lieberman is the "worst person ever?" Worse than Cheney, for example? Can you be more specific? Given what his book is about, do you think he's the worst Jew ever? Or are you commenting on his politics?

@Outtacontext The ninth circle is for treachery.

@Outtacontext I'm actually a bit pro-sabbath myself!

I have no opinions on his personhood or on his religion.

Just his obstructionist, self-aggrandizing, warmongering, security-state-supporting, MCCAIN-PALIN-CAMPAIGNING, healthcare-filibustering, insurance-company-war-chesting, position-swapping, Wikileaks-hating ways in general I'm against. Though I also think he's really annoying.

@Choire Sicha Thanks for illuminating. But, honestly, you don't think torture is worse than opportunism?

@Outtacontext The difference is really about expectation. I *expect* Dick Cheney to be a trough-chewing profiteer and an engineer of the world security state. Joe Lieberman constantly proclaims his Democratic-affiliations, even while being absolutely Cheney-esque.

@Choire Sicha I'm anti-sabaths of all kinds, because I'm pro-brunch.

@Choire Sicha: Further to these excellent points, it should be noted that Lieberman is a whiny unattractive prick.

@Outtacontext he is worse than Cheney because he is a "traitor" for continuing to support the Iraq War after the other Democrats "apologized" for their votes.

Lieberman is an asshat, but I think we can all get behind the idea of resting for a whole day!

@boyofdestiny Easy for Lieberman to say when he is about to retire.

I once saw him and his wife at the Ikea in Virginia on a Saturday. I'm assuming they didn't walk there, so he's full of shit on this subject, too.

@jfruh He has a Shabbos Metro chauffeur too – a friend once saw someone putting Liebs' Metro ticket through the machine so he could pass through. And you guessed it – he was a pissy jerk.

The best part of the Obama inauguration was when Lieberman's smug face came up on all the jumbotrons and a million people on the Mall booed him simultaneously.

This is why I'll always be proud for voting for Winona LaDuke for Vice-President of the United States.
