McCain To Pick Joe Lieberman For VP Slot

Washington—After years and years of taking it in the shorts by moderate Republicans, John McCain has decided to pick Joe Lieberman as his Vice Presidential running mate. This move breaks a long standing history of Republican tradition, and throws the Republican Party into utter chaos.

The move, made after months of pandering to the left, is all part of the McCain strategy to reach out to Democrats and feed his out of control ego. The McCain camp had thought long and hard about selecting Hillary Clinton, but agreed that making that move might be going too far. So, the Lieberman choice was a virtual compromise to his otherwise “maverick” behavior.

“You see,” McCain fired, “this is my election. Bush stole what was rightfully mine. And we’re doing it my way. Understand! It’s all about me!”

Many conservative talk radio hosts have been outspoken, noting that since McCain is no conservative, he should at least pick a conservative for his Vice Presidential candidate. The Lieberman pick is a move that is giving those conservatives a “fickle finger of fate.”

“I can’t believe he did this,” yelled a perturbed Mark Levin. “This loser—and that’s what he is, a loser—could’ve picked a conservative for four years down the road. But he can forget about my vote! You hear me, McCain. You’re as out of control as the Supreme Court!”

“After his Marxist behavior on CEO’s,” quipped Limbaugh, “this really doesn’t surprise me at all. He’s been trying to stick it to the Republican Party since 2000. We are so screwed, and I can’t overstate that enough!”

“The ninth ring of hell is devoted to John McCain,” blasted Ann Coulter. “He is a despicable, spineless jellyfish, and I can’t wait to see him burn!”

“I don’t give a rat’s behind as to what Levin, Limbaugh, Coulter or Free Republic says,” belted a pissed McCain. “I have a spot on my left, lower cheek for all of them to kiss. So bend over and kiss it!”

Despite the comments from many conservatives, it has become obvious that Senator McCain is not a conservative, nor will he ever be, and any hopes beyond this primary season is just that…hope.

Could this be a S-A-T-I-R-E?

If this isn’t obvious, then what does it tell you about Senator McCain?

How about Bobby Jindal? Far better choice than Lieberman.

I dunno. I think it would be funny to see LIEberman lose twice for Vice-President.

I would actually go vote if he was intelligent enough to
pick Bobby Jindal....a REAL conservative!

He might be “young and inexperienced” but then so is Osama
Obama...and Jindal is NOT a Marxist!

Rove’s lists from FoxNews ...

On McCain’s list is Lieberman, former Democrat who still caucuses with the Democrats.

On Obama’s list is Hagel, Republican.

And Mayor Bloomberg is reportedly on the short list of BOTH candidates.

==

It shows up how LITTLE difference there is between the 2 candidates or parties...

Mr. Bobby needs to actually be successful in La first.

Leave him there, he could be a great one down the road if he does well.

I can't. I'm too busy stuck in never, never land, hoping McCain will actually be conservative.

Yes, even McCain is not that stupid. I see a conservative outside Governor being picked. Sanford, Palin, or the more moderate Pawlenty.

That was from the last time when some people actually couldn’t tell I wrote a satire, but I am no prophet. At least I hope not.

:-)
