After retiring, Joe Lieberman plans to celebrate his re-election
-Headline of the day-
"Lieberman to retire in 2012 but 'confident he would have won' a fifth term."
Joementum's quitting the whole governing business because he wants to retire to Sussex Downs to keep bees. Or something like that.
Whatever the reason, it's super-important that you know it isn't because he didn't stand a chance in hell of being re-elected. That's just a horrible lie made up by commies, terrorists, and the 66% of Connecticut voters who say they'd replace him.
Of course, you might be asking what difference it makes. If Lieberman's retiring, why would he even bother to speculate on an election that's never going to happen?

-Because that's just too short-
Rush Limbaugh pegged hypocrisy meters nationwide when he critiqued President Obama's State of the Union speech in advance:
"I know a lot of you don't want to watch this... I'm like you. Who wants to sit there and listen to somebody lie for an hour and fifteen minutes?" Rush asked.
I know what you're thinking and it's not fair. Rush's show is three full hours, so there's a difference. (Mediaite)
"78-year-old woman gets death threats after Beck shouts conspiracy."
But remember, it's completely irresponsible to say that rightwing hate talk inspires violence.(Raw Story)
