Colin McEnroe loves Lieberman's campaign staff

I guess I'm not the only one who's scratching their head over the "top-notch" Lieberman campaign staff. Our favorite insomniac, Colin McEnroe shares his experience with team Joementum. Lets just say I don't think Joe will be inviting Colin over for dinner any time soon.

If you thought McEnroe was funny when he "dozed off" to the sound of Joe's voice
, wait till you read what he has to say about Lieberman's staff when he's fully alert and awake.

First, he breaks yesterday's laughable press release written by Lieberman's press secretary Marion "what are you smoking" Steinfels.
Then, they responded to a Lamont commercial which attempted to deceive the voters into believing that Lieberman's voice sometimes comes out of President Bush's mouth, much in the vein of the now scientifically discredited documentary "Look Who's Talking."

In response, the Lieberman press secretary issued list of "facts," a political term meaning "things which, if they were true, would make our jobs a lot easier."


Here are my two favorite facts:
  1. Joe Lieberman has been a scathing critic of the Bush Administration. This would be "scathing" in its mostly idiomatic and colloquial usage as a substitute for "fawning."

  2. Joe Lieberman is the only person in the United States of America who ran against George W. Bush twice, and beat him once. This is an apparent reference to 2000, when Lieberman ran against Bush the way Dan Quayle ran against Mike Dukakis in 1988 and the way Ed McMahon was the long-running and widely respected host of the "Tonight" show. This is also an apparent reference to 2004, when Lieberman wanted to run very badly and sort of did. Actually, he didn't get to run against Bush at all that year , especially after he finished unambiguously fifth in the New Hampshire primary and subsequently announced he had tied for third.
If you think that's great, wait till you read about McEnroe's encounter with everyone's favorite press secretary.
That was the same kooky press secretary who called me up recently and asked me what kind of radio show I do and how she could listen to it and whether my newspaper column is exclusively political. I sort of figured this was one of their improv skits, so I went along as though these were perfectly reasonable questions to ask me. I then suggested that she could better understand one of my takes on Lieberman by reading a certain posting elsewhere in this blog, whereupon she told me she makes it a point never to read any blogs because they get things so wrong. I love this press secretary.
Colin says kooky, I say stoned. Steinfels' bizarre press releases and strange statements to the press is straight out of the Twilight Zone.

There is more to the article so click over to McEnroe's blog and give it a read. I promise he won't disappoint you.

BTW: Someone should help McEnroe and make a video to his new take on the Adams Family song.
In the words of Alfred Lord Tennyson:

They're creepy and they're kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They're altogether ooky,

The Liebercampaignstaff!
Snap, snap.
