William F. Buckley, via a shameful video of Lieberman’s GOP admirers:
“As a human being, Joe Lieberman is a resplendent example of the species.”
Resplendent?! I always thought that was a pseudo-pretend word used when you’re being jokingly ornamental and somewhat ironic. And my god, has Buckley actually seen Lieberman? No offense intended for any of you wimpy milquetoast types, but I could make a better man than Joe Lieberman out of my left nut; and I’d still have enough material left over for a few George Bushes.
(For the record: No, my testicle materials could not be used to make such prissy doofuses as Bush or Lieberman. No matter how many times you split them, you’d only end up with more perfect replicas of myself; and the originals would quickly grow back to be even more resplendent than before; if that’s possible.)
P.S. Yes, I do believe that Buckley may have been going for the whole irony thing, and that this quote might just be evidence of Buckley’s extraterrestrial origins. I just thought that was too obvious to bother mentioning. But this would explain how he can roll in his grave while still being alive. You see, William F. Buckley does not exist in time. He simply is. That is the essence of the conservative movement. They are past, present, and future, rolled into one heaping mound of self-righteous indignation; eternally perplexed by our diehard insistence on living in the present.
P.P.S. To be perfectly honest, I had absolutely nothing against Joe Lieberman until I got marching orders from Kos to assault him as I would my mother’s killer. I don’t know much about politics, but I do what I’m told.
