Lieberman’s Teapot Dome

Sen. Joe Lieberman: “Here is my handle; here is my spout…”

Bush’s Best Democratic Buddy
Joe Lieberman gives the president a pass on Katrina.

By Michael Isikoff and Mark Hosenball

Sen. Joe Lieberman, the only Democrat to endorse President Bush’s new plan for Iraq, has quietly backed away from his pre-election demands that the White House turn over potentially embarrassing documents relating to its handling of the Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans.

Huh. I wonder what that was all about.


Hey, what’s this coming out of the ol’ pneumatic tube?

Hypocrisy Alert: Homeland Security Undocumented!

The Department of Homeland Security underwent an audit. The audit was done by the well known firm of KPMG at the direction of Inspector General Richard Skinner.


You may want to read [this statement] twice: FEMA was unable to fully support the accuracy and completeness of certain unpaid obligations, and accounts payable, and the related effects on net position, if any, prior to the completion of DHS’s 2006 PAR. These unpaid obligations, as reported in the accompanying DHS balance sheet as of September 30, 2006, were $22.3 Billion or 46% of DHS consolidated unexpended appropriations at September 30, 2006.


So, follow me here, FEMA has lost and/or failed to account for a sum of money that is almost half of DHS’s entire budget and 130 times greater than the amount of money that the Department of Homeland Security is willing to spend to secure the homeland.

But wait, there’s more.

And where is Congress on all this? Well, the House Committee on Homeland Security has been chaired by none other than Peter (I thank God every night that George Bush is my President) King (R-NY3), so enough said there. In the Senate the committee’s ranking Democrat has been none other than our own beloved Joe Leiberman.

You’d hope that something gargantuan like this would dominate the news (22.3 billion dollars!? 46% of the entire DHS budget?1!!?). But as we’ve learned so well these past few years, it’s possible for a story to attain a threshold of awfulness such that the media simply needs to throw a blanket over it and pretend it isn’t there.

Well, yeah. That’s exactly how I deal with dog crap on my lawn. Doesn’t everyone?



Joe Lieberman, Human Fig Leaf.


Clearly, the far-left Lieberman has tainted the previous Republican leadership’s rigorous demands for tight and well-planned fiscal responsibility.

What? Seriously, they demand it! Unlike those Spendocrats, who just throw money around like it was hookers and blow and a Watergate party, Republicans are very fastidious about how and where taxpayer money goes…

… 70% of CT Republicans voted for Lieberman. SEVENTY FUCKING PERCENT.


Morning, err Afternoon, Gavin!

P.S. The House Committee on Homeland Security is now chaired by Bernie Thompson.

It’s delicious, isn’t it? The hearings are going to be quite a show.

My life has become nothing but a series of Jellyneck-style god-damn-its since utterly worthless fucks took over. I can’t wait for them to get their comeuppance. Can’t. Fucking. Wait.

Spike the bulldog

I’m no supporter of Lieberman, but I must ask you to please remove that photograph of Droopy. It was taken at a wedding I attended, in fact Santorum and I gave Droopy that purple finger by…. AHEM never mind, that’s personal.

In any case this picture does not belong here as it brings great pain to me and everyone else who was at that wedding. If you can’t remove it for Lieberman or myself, remove it for my boy Tyke. Oh, my boy!


It’s up to the Democrats (not you Lieberman, sit the fuck down) to make this an issue with their congressional power. We already know that the media find billions of our tax dollars disappearing to be a non-starting story.

Sadly, in that case, the story would be how the Dems play politics by harassing the GOP over such inane and unimportant issues. grumblegrumble


You go to into the history books with the president you re-elected.


You go into the history books with the president you swapped spit with.


It would have been more efficient to just fill the sandbags with money.


It took us three 14 drinks each to get the nerve to post a comment here, but here goes: Teapot Dome? Sounds to us like your fixin’ to place him in a gas oven. We know the real reason you’re all so eager to pick on poor Joe. Not a Troll, vehemently hereby objects. But I say, “Go for it!” Show Joe no mercy!


From a pub somewhere in Hamburg, it’s me again. 6 drinks later. Not a Troll and me got in a fight over Joe. He’s passed out, so I’m free to show my support once again, for your lack of support for Lieberman.
Keep the heat on. Oh, and Not at Troll would undoubtedly object, but I’m going to add this:

Ein Song über die Bee Gees von Dr. BLT

Dass Bee Gees Songs gecovert wurden und noch immer werden, ist nichts Neues. Da sind Überraschungen in jeder Hinsicht möglich (ohne die grässlichen und zumeist hochnotpeinlichen Bee Gees Cover Bands da mit einzubeziehen!), positive wie negative, interessante wie uninteressante.
Was andreres ist es allerdings, wenn ein Musiker einen Song über die Bee Gees schreibt. Warum auch immer er das tut.
Der amerikanischen Musiker Dr. BLT hat auf seiner Webseite massenhaft Songs zum Anhören (und Kaufen), die allesamt mit Größen aus der Rock- und Popmusik zu tun haben, viele davon Eigenkompositionen, manches sind einfach Coverversionen. Und natürlich hat er auch einen Song über die Bee Gees: Download.

He’s back!

Sadly, No! This is now my domain, doctor…


It’s all yours, Ann AltBLT. I’ve transformed. I used to be a pass-a-fist. Now I’m a pacifist. But I’ll be back again next year, just before the election.


somebody pass me a bucket


[…] It’s about how 46%, yes, that’s right folks, not a typo (I checked and rechecked) of our Katrina money, a.k.a., YOUR money, cannot be accounted for. […]


20 comments about this and 1100 comments about MJ’s perwinkle sweater and brown eyes. That just about sums it up doesn’t it?


It’s not possible to set your expectations too low for this administration.


I’m a pacifist. I “pass” a fist.
