    Andy Borowitz: Lieberman Calls Prescription Plan Unnecessary; "I've Been Off My Meds For Years"

    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) - Sounding a sour note in the aftermath of the Senate's passage of the health care reform bill, Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman said today that the prescription plan in the bill was unnecessary, noting, "I've been off my meds for years."

    Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) took Mr. Lieberman's comments in stride, saying only that they "explained a lot."

    Sen. Reid said that he had noticed "erratic behavior" from Mr. Lieberman in recent days, such as showing up for the historic health care vote wearing a green Grinch costume. More here.

    Is this the same Reid who initially voted no on the legislation? That would explain a lot

    Blog...and absolute crap.
    Andy Borowitz (born January 4, 1958) is a comedian and satirist who won the first National Press Club award for humor, and is known for creating the satirical website, the Borowitz Report.
    Only the sewer-dwellers at HuffPo would attempt to pass this off as a news article.

    It's Political Junk.


    Is honesty totally foreign to you?

    And you wouldn't imagine this same man was the Democratic Party nominee for Vice President just 5 years ago. You would think he was Dick Cheney's right hand man or something. Liberal tolerance--give me a break.

    Things change. Situations change. People change. So as far as I'm concerned, JL might as well have been Cheney's right hand man for the last few years. And it has nothing to do with tolerance and more to do with acceptance.

    From what I see, it's conservatives that have a problem with both.

    Lieberman hasn't changed. He holds the same views he always has. But because he decided that protecting America and pursuing war was more important than kow towing to radical Democratic Party interests he had to be destroyed. This is the result.
