Have you noticed how the Republican presidential nominee, John McCain, has got himself a puppy?
It’s strange, because it’s the same puppy Al Gore selected as his VP in the 2000 election.
How can this be, I hear you ask?
It’s really quite simple. John McCain, mind changer par excellence, needs a similar personage in the form of Joe Lieberman to balance his insecurities.
When McCain blithely extolled the alliance between Iran and al Qaeda recently, it was dear old Joe who whispered in his lug’ole that actually the Iranians were Shia, and al Qaeda one hundred percent Sunni – and never, as they say, the twain shall meet.
Joe Lieberman is a Jew. With a name like that he could hardly be anything else. No great surprise then that he accompanied McCain on a recent visit to Israel.
John McCain isn’t a Jew, though you’d hardly know it from this photograph.
From Israel, McCain headed for the 51st State of the Union and a visit with the
governor prime minister, Gordon Brown.
Guess who’s tagging along behind? Oh, no, surely not? Is that really Joseph Lieberman standing beside Gordon?
I do believe it is.
Joe Lieberman was a powerful member of the Democratic party until 2006, when he was beaten in the Connecticut Democratic primary by Ned Lamont. He then went “independent”, which broadly speaking meant he sat on the fence and waited for offers.
Now, it seems, he’s finally got one.
Of course, if that means he’s offered the VP nomination by McCain, he’ll have to jump off the fence and into the opposing camp, but that shouldn’t prove to much of a problem for Lieberman, and having two “bouncy-bouncies” on the Republican ticket will certainly assist the elderly McCain to decide which side of the fence he should really sit on.
