Cactus Joke (such as it is)
From one of the news sites I regularly read, Talking Points Memo, comes this insight about the failure that is Joe Lieberman, as told in a cactus joke.
But it became ever more clear yesterday that (Obama’s) “forgive and forget” policy toward Joe Lieberman was a big mistake.
I understand why Obama did what he did. It is summed up in (an) adage (that) states that the difference between a caucus and a cactus is that, on a cactus, the pricks are on the outside.
Oh, snap! See, that joke is funny because Joe Lieberman is a prick!
But unfortunately, any comparison between a cactus and Joe Lieberman would inherently be insulting to the cactus. He makes a jumping cholla seem friendly. Even a porcupine wouldn’t mate carefully with him (that’s another sophomoric spiny joke entirely. Sorry about that.)
