Joe Lieberman should Die in front of his Children

Connecticut senator Joe Lieberman may well be one of the worst human beings in the world.

He is certainly the nation's worst Democrat. He has endorsed and voted in favor of every one of W. Bush's policies and programs, even going as far as to criticise members of his own party who dare point out objective fact that demonstrates, for instance, that the Iraq War is based on false information and faught poorly.

Compounding my distaste for him is his vocal opposition to violence in video games, leading the charge in the past against such threats to our way of life as the best selling PC game Doom. I'd go further into his jackassery vis a vis gaming, but its all slightly old news. Rest assured he'll do something stupid on that front soon enough and I'll be appropriately indignant. Besides, it would distract from his latest crime against common sense and decency.

In Connecticut, apparently if you're raped, and theres a risk you could get pregnant, you had better hope the paramedics dont take you to a Catholic hospital, because it seems they reserve the right to deny you emergency contraception. Okay, first wrap your mind around that, this isn't even an abortion issue, this is about preventing the rapist's sperm from fusing permanently with the victim's egg. Terminating a life doesnt even enter into it, but the Conn. Catholics, never ones to let facts or sense interfere with their actions, are opposed to it nonetheless, meaning about %20 of Conn hospitals are basically saying that a victim should be forced to give birth to the rapist's child, an opinion they no doubt derive from their wonderful Christian love.

Anyway, a bill was proposed recently to counteract this madness. Guess what Lieberman's opinion is on the matter.

From the New Haven Register (reguires registration)
U.S. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, who often takes a conservative line on social issues, is facing a liberal Democratic primary challenge from wealthy Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont. But that hasn't stopped Lieberman from supporting the approach of the Catholic hospitals when it comes to contraceptives for rape victims.

Lieberman said he believes hospitals that refuse to give contraceptives to rape victims for "principled reasons" shouldn't be forced to do so. "In Connecticut, it shouldn't take more than a short ride to get to another hospital," he said.
I tried to pick a single sentence from that quite to boldface, but its honestly all so damned absurd that I couldnt pick just one. His kowtowing to religious interests put him in favor of letting hospitals deny emergency medical assistence if they just plain dont feel like it? And this guy is a three-term senator? Good lord why is there so much Stupid in the world?!
