Netrooter: Lamont Supporters to Gitmo If Lieberman Tapped as VP
Is it essential for an extreme liberal to be a paranoid conspiracy theorist?
Whether it's American involvement in taking down the World Trade Center, or war for oil, these folks can't swing a dead cat without hitting some nefarious cabal involving Republicans.
The newest one, floated by Jane Hamsher of Firedoglake fame, is that if Joe Lieberman is John McCain's running mate, and they win only to have the aged McCain die in office, President Lieberman would round up all the bloggers that supported Ned Lamont's senatorial campaign in 2006 and send them to Gitmo.
I kid you not:
I have an elaborate nightmare where Joe Lieberman gets the VP nod, McCain wins, then dies -- and we're looking at a President Lieberman. At which point I and a host of others bloggers who supported Ned Lamont wind up in Guantanamo Bay. [...]
I sure hope this is just my dark thoughts getting the best of me.
Because I do not look good in orange.
Granted, Jane's tongue might be firmly planted in her cheek. However, this is a woman with so much hatred for Lieberman that she actually posted the following picture at her website in August 2006:
Now THAT's tolerance for you.
