Good Riddance Joe, you lying commie ! .

He broke the golden rule: thou shalt not turn thy back on thy Dumocrap Party.
“Connecticut is a very liberal state. I wonder why he is so unpopular there since he is a liberal.”
Yes, but he’s only 99.99% liberal...doesn’t meet their purity test.
And he did all the good liberal votes too. Obamacare. Sodomites in the services was his baby.
