Bitter Much?

CNN's web team doesn't appear to be a big fan of Joe Lieberman. While the actual article carries the headline, "Lieberman secures spot on November ballot," the Web team decided this was a fitting link:


This would presumably be the same "fine folks" that brought us this gem in July:


Top-notch. Professional. Pithy.

This is CNN.

Well, did you actually read that bit about Bush?
"He loves to cuss, gets a jolly when a mountain biker wipes out trying to keep up with him, and now we're learning that the first frat boy loves flatulence jokes. A top insider let that slip when explaining why President Bush is paranoid around women, always worried about his behavior. But he's still a funny, earthy guy who, for example, can't get enough of fart jokes. He's also known to cut a few for laughs, especially when greeting new young aides, but forget about getting people to gas about that."

Now that's top-notch and professional...

All valid points, legion.

I just wish Bush would just quietly get sucked off by interns in secret.

Top-notch and professional...

Whats unprofessional about that? I just came from a meeting with a vendor where I was letting loose with pickled cabbage powered stink bombs the entire time. It's an effective negotiating tool in a closed room. She would have given me the parts for free if I had kept her in there any longer. As it was she escaped with just some mild discomfort and I got a decent price. I thought about eating chili and eggs for breakfast to really drive my point home but now I'm glad I didn't.

the above is all b/s but man i love a good fart joke.

They have major problems with their headlines. In CNN World, Bushitler is the Primary Loser, but the article is about Lieberman?

Why do you watche CNN anyway?? I gave up years ago.

As to Bush, he was a DKE in school as I recall. That is normal behavior for that fraternity.

that headline is a very fair headline, because Lieberman's placement on the ballot is remarkable only because he lost his primary campaign. Otherwise it is not newsworthy. Name the last person to lose a primary and run in that general.
