With Joe Lieberman making such an obstructionist spectacle of himself in the health care debate, pundits are laboring to analyze his
motives: catering to insurance interests, strategizing for re-election?
Another possibility presents itself: He's an unprincipled, neurotic,
power-hungry asshole with no redeeming qualities who should be booted out of public life.

Andy Borowitz reports: A majority of those surveyed agreed with the
statement, "I want an asshole to represent me in the Senate, and there
is no bigger asshole out there than Joe Lieberman."
