Joe Lieberman was a four term senator from the state of Connecticut. Three times as a Democrat and once as an independent who caucused with Democrats.
He is also one of the remnants of what the Democrat Party used to be.
Mr. Lieberman is troubled by how far leftward his party has lurched – especially since DNC chairperson Tom Perez called the looney-tune-left wing ignoramus, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “the future of the party”. And, last week, he felt compelled to speak out – not in anger, but with concern. His exact words:
“With all respect, I certainly hope she’s not the future and I don’t believe she is.”
Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s deep, intelligent response was:
“New party, who dis?”
This is a member of congress? This is someone who votes on legislation? Holy excrement.
On Sunday, Lieberman tried one more time to talk like an adult about Ocasio-Cortez. After calling her response “kind of silly” (that’s about as mild as he could get it), Lieberman said, among other things:
“She just takes us back to the big-spending, big-taxing Democratic Party, and the Democratic Party is not going to succeed that way…the more typical Democrat elected to the House for the first time this year didn’t share her point of view. They were center-left.”
I have not seen/heard Ocasio-Cortez’s response to this analysis. But, given her first one, I would not be surprised if it were just as puerile, just as mindlessly childish as the first one.
Right now, two of the most visible Democrats in the country are the obtuse, ridiculous Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the zombified remains of Nancy Pelosi (did you see her next to Chuck Schumer last week, as he did his imitation of Richard Nixon?).
It is hard to see how either of them help their party.
