The Washington Post reports Senator Joseph Lieberman is a little sh** faced over a blackface. A doctored photo of Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (D-Conn.) in blackface that was posted by a blogger who has been an influential promoter of challenger Ned Lamont.
The post reports Lieberman angrily demanded that Lamont denounce the action and sever all ties with Jane Hamsher, the founder of the Web log Firedoglake, who posted the photo on another blog, HuffingtonPost.com.
African-American Political Pundit says: “I only wish the Senator could get as angry about the the war in Iraq (which he supports) and slaughter of Lebanese civilians. Its about time the Senator denounce both wars”.
As you can tell, I’m not a supporter of Lieberman, I really think he is a “snake in the grass”. But, in this situation blackface was not appropriate. It brings up old race issues. like, is Lieberman angrily demanding that Lamont denounce the action because he (Lieberman) would never want to have a black face (ouch)! Or is he (Lieberman) loving this because he (Lieberman) a white guy, can use the RACE CARD (double ouch)!
Blogsphere:Bloggers are generally saying the picture could be racist in nature. It’s too bad they can’t be united against war.
