Oh, it BURRRRRNS, Precioussss!

Even Tweety's disgusted:

Is Lieberman too good for Connecticut?

I was awoken this morning by a local talk jock in New Haven who had me on a few minutes later to talk about last night’s primary results.

He had watched "Hardball" until 2 a.m. and somehow tracked me down in my hotel room. The person he could not track down was the state’s lame duck senator, Joseph Lieberman—a fact for which he blasted Lieberman once we were on air. He told me that Joe had time for "GMA" and "Today," but not for the hometown media. He said this is what’s been wrong with Lieberman for years—he’s a national senator playing to his friends in Washington and New York, but too self-important for the people who made him a senator.

Oh, Joe. You know what you have to do: throw the One Ring into the fires of Mount Doom.

One Ring

From here.
