Here is the letter I wrote to Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman after reading the NY Times article and seeing a post on Facebook about how to contact him by my friend Laura.

If enough people contact him, maybe there will be some intern in his office who secretly hates him and will broadcast to the world, exactly how many people think poorly of his choices. Enough with Tiger Woods. Lieberman’s sins are far worse.

My question for you Senator Lieberman is this:

Did your mother and father deprive you of attention as a child?

You seem to be taking extreme measures to seek it. Even at the expense of hundreds of thousands of Americans who cannot afford health care, you, Senator Lieberman need to be at the center of it all. The center of attention.

When most of the people in your great state of Connecticut are indeed for a public option health care bill (according to a Quinnipiac College Poll), you stand vehemently opposed to it.

Don’t we elect senators to represent the people? Or do we elect them to passive aggressively show their disdain for the president and their former party?

Well, when the watered-down health care bill has passed and years from now when you’re no longer in office you’ll go down in history as “the one who stopped progress”.

And in honor of your great senatorship, you’ll avail of great FREE health care for the rest of your life, while many around you (even in wealthy Connecticut) will struggle.

Senator Leiberman, all this attention is great right now. Enjoy. Enjoy. But it will indeed come at the price of a very tainted legacy.

If you feel as strongly as I do, get some of your frustration out and contact him. Even if you’re not from Connecticut, do it. And as my friend Laura suggested, just use Lieberman’s office address on the right side of this site.

Or, if you’re not the writing type,

MoveOn just launched a campaign against him. They raised $287,000 within just  a half-hour ago of launching it! https://pol.moveon.org/donate/lieberman.html

    Your career is finished, Joe!

    You join Senator Joe McCarthy—as the most despised Senators in History.
