      • Stephen: …and therefore it's tonight's Word: Inquisition. Folks, incumbent Senators win back their seats 80% of the time. (20% of time have sex scandals) And they're almost never challenged in the primaries, so listen up Connecticut Democrats: You made your choice back in 1988, you chose Joe Lieberman. (And acid wash jeans) You don't get to have another primary 18 years later. You can't just say: Oops, I made a mistake. (Apparently, neither can Lieberman) You know, you may not agree with some, or all, of his positions, but you have to wait until a Republican beats Lieberman, and than six or twelve or eighteen years later you can elect a totally different Democrat. (Davey Lieberman in '24!) Joe Lieberman still has a lot to offer, (To Republicans) he's a major political figure on the national stage. He was the Democratic Vice Presidential candidate! (An inconvenient truth) He was on the 2000 ticket and in 2004 he made an impressive showing in New Hampshire.

        {Video: Lieberman: We are in a three way split decision for third place!}

        Stephen: You cannot stop Joe-mentum! This is a man who was tied with other men who almost got nominated to lose the general election! And now Democrats are just going to kick him to the curb? (At the corner of Bland and Adequate) Well folks, if a jihad like this can happen to Joe Lieberman, it can happen to any Democrat. (Who tongues the President) And if it does happen to Lieberman soon you'll have members of Congress from all over the country facing primaries having to defend their records. And folks, there's only one word for that: (Democracy) Inquisition.

        And that's the Word.
