Lieberman channels Bertolt Brecht



After losing his primary election, one of the most despicable US Senators, Joe Lieberman, channels the true Brechtian spirit: “For the sake of our state, our country and my party, I cannot and will not let that result stand,” he said (source), thus basically telling the world that voters who don’t vote for him cannot be trusted, or as Brecht put it, “Would it not be easier […] To dissolve the people and elect another?” (found here, at the bottom). He’s now running as a Republican. No wait, they already have a candidate, he’s running as a *nudge-nudge wink-wink* “independent”. No wonder Bush jr - who brought you that wonderful democracy in Iraq - just loves the guy (and vice versa).
