Early last month, the senator announced his backup plan to run as a petition candidate. He created a new party, Connecticut for Lieberman, to secure a higher position on the ballot than if he petitioned as an individual. -- "Lieberman kicks off indie bid," Greenwich Time, 08/10/06
In the beginning, the purpose of the existence of Democratic Party was to get Joe Lieberman a job in Washington. Then the purpose of the Democratic Party changed: It was to get Joe Lieberman elected vice-president so that he could someday be president. After that failure, the purpose of the Democratic Party was to nominate him for, and get him elected to, the presidency. And after that failure, he lowered his expectations: The purpose of the Democratic Party was to ensure the incumbency of US Senator Joe Lieberman.
After the Democratic Party failed of its real, true, sole purpose -- the care and feeding of Joe Lieberman -- three times, Joe Lieberman made it clear that it isn't just the Democratic Party which exists to serve Joe Lieberman. Now, the purpose of the existence of the state and people of Connecticut is to provide Joe Lieberman with a US Senate seat in perpetuity.
It's not about politics. It's not about issues. It's not about representation. It's. All. About. Joe. Lieberman. The world revolves around Joe Lieberman, see?
