“No-Man” Joe

When it comes to health care reform, Joe Lieberman is acting like a petulant baby: “Wah, wah, wah! Dump the public option, or I filibuster. So there!”

I don’t know whether Lieberman’s doing this because he’s owned by insurance companies or because he wants to punish Democrats. But it’s clearly not out of conviction. Otherwise, he could surely keep his rationale straight: Joe’s up to seven nonsensical reasons … and counting.

“No-Man” Joe (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

“Public option’s no good,” asserts Joe.
“Want my health reform vote? It must go.”
But his stated objections
Keep changing directions.
Joe’s mantra on health? “Just say no!”

  1. If Ogden Nash were here to speak,
    It’s likely he’d succinctly shreak:
    “When it comes to Joe,
    Please say it ain’t noe!
    Now, let’s put the bill on his beak.”

    Thanks, Elwin! :)

  3. I did watch the MA election. They elected a pro-chioce moderate who ran away from the party. And in NY the radicals split the right side of the ticket and lost. This is very good news for everyone but Sara Palin and the tea baggers.
