Today we begin a new program at American Everyman; Get to Know a Sellout! Each week we will be selecting a new member for our “sellouts! list”, in order to highlight their fabulous accomplishments in the field of selling out their country, their constituents, and their honor, to the newly formed “business party elites”. These are special kinds of people whose efforts shouldn’t go unnoticed, in the event that the people of this country ever wake the fuck up.
And now for the big event… the first of the Get to Know a Sellout! list… the Mack-Daddy of All sellouts… (you have to look under the break (like looking under a rock) to see him (that’s a hint)…
Sen. Joe Lieberman!
“Lieberman has been one of the Senate’s strongest advocates for continued prosecution of the Iraq War. He is also a consistent supporter of Israel. On domestic issues, he strongly supports free tradeeconomics. He has also opposed fillibustering Republican judicial appointments. With Lynne Cheney and others, Lieberman co-founded American Council of Trustees and Alumni(ACTA), an educational association with ties to Campus Watch.”Wiki, here.
Old fightin Joe Lieberman, was never really in a fight, but he just loves sending your kids to ‘em! Loves it to death! He will cry and scream on the floor of the Senate to keep your kids in the Middle East making war on countries that never posed a single threat to America. God bless ol fightin Joe, huh?
Don’t know what Campus Watch is? The program Lieberman and Lynne Cheney work on is an offshoot of it. “Campus Watch is an organisation which “reviews and critiques Middle East studies in North America with an aim to improving them.” It is a project of the Middle East Forum, an American, neoconservative, pro-Israel think tank. It is based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S. and was founded in 2002 by Daniel Pipes.”
“with an aim to improving them…” that’s right folks: Good ol fightin Joe and Lynne Cheney (wife of Dick…) are working hard to make sure our educators are teaching “the right information” about the middle east, in our colleges and universities.
How far Right can Joe go? All the way baby… he knows what side his bread is buttered on…
remember this gem?
Oh how things have changed for Ol Fightin Joe since then…
He met up with this guy at the AEI announcement of the “Choosing Victory” press conference, and now just 1 1/2 years later… Payday Baby!
He’s hob-nobbing and all smiles cus he knows he’s on the Super-Short List (of one) for the Vice President’s job (and he knows just how powerful that position can be now that Cheney (Lynne’s husband! wink wink) has determined it’s not one of the three branches of government!
Yuck it up, Joe! You made the Primer Edition of “Get to Know a Sellout!” (ain’t your mother proud?)
When the shit hits the fan, Joe, I feel for you. i really do. You just thought you were picking the winning team… it goes like that sometimes.
Just ask Dr. Samuel Mudd.
Congratulations, you piece of shit. You’re the first sellout on the list.
