Breaking with tradition, rumor has it that Joe will run with an pre-chosen second banana, Evan Bayh, for Vice President.
The two senators, stalwart DLC Democrats both, will also consider running as third party candidates should (god forbid) their efforts to garner the Democratic nod fail.
As Joe's unofficial strategist, I have already locked up a name for their budding independent entry:
The Somnambulist Party
Check out their slogan:
Lieberman-Bayh `08: Because America is ready for a nap
Sure, there's been plenty of talk about how Hillary has a chokehold on the next Democratic nomination. But let's face it, after eight years of the current lunacy, America will be ready to shut it down for a while. Hillary is an ambitious pol who is likely to seek loads of change. And change means conflict. And work.
Christ, haven't we had enough of that under these clowns?
But Joe and Evan? Dialed down (if slightly more competent) status quo, baby. Just what all of America will be looking for.
Imagine stretching out on a comfy couch every Saturday afternoon just as President Joementum's weekly radio address comes wafting from your speakers... You'll be out like a light in a matter of seconds, dreaming about your next vacation or an old flame.
And you'll have Joe to thank for your serenity -- and your reverie.
And when Joe wants a weekend off, he'll gently hand off the insomnia-curing chores to his second-in-command, Evan Bayh-bye.
Relax. Let the dulcet tones of the DLC-drones wash over you. It's all under control. We'll all get along. No more partisan conflicts. Just one big happy party in America. No more left and right. Just center. Always the center. (You'll find your own center, too.)
Watch for news of the Draft Joementum website.
Our efforts are only beginning.
If you'd like to help out in this noble effort, please let me know here. I'll be in touch.
You'll be well-rested after eight years of Lieberman-Bayh!
