Joe Lieberman Death Watch, Day #6

Does it get any worse? I ask this, in all seriousness.

From Monday's New York Times:
Senator Joseph I. Lieberman conducted seven radio interviews earlier today before taking his case to a fidgeting crowd of about 200 elementary school students in Albuquerque.

He had shaken hands with dozens of voters on Sunday at a boat show in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and had delighted a crowd of youngsters by appearing with Twiggy, the water-skiing squirrel. But today, instead of standing side-by-side, as planned, with Gov. Bill Richardson, Mr. Lieberman was alone, defending his stance on Iraq to a fourth-grader.

Yes, an alleged presidential candidate just did a joint appearance with a squirrel. Sigh. Wandering off the beaten path, here's a local account of the Twiggy and Joe show:

"Tell your mom and dad to go out and vote for Lieberman," he told a little girl at the event...

Before leaving the boat show, Lieberman made time to watch a performance by the show's star, Twiggy the water-skiing squirrel.

"That was unbelievable," Lieberman said after Twiggy's performance. "Who would have guessed?"

Oh, where to begin. First, he's going Soupy Sales (search for wallet) on kids for their parents' vote, then he's Upstaged By A Squirrel.

Joe said it best. "Unbelievable."
