They're killing Independent Joe!

Well, it looks like Bill & Hillary matters for poor ol' Joe Lieberman. In addition to Hillary Clinton's well-publicized $5 000 donation to Lamont's campaign, it turns out that the Jr. Senator from New York is asking Lieberman to "search his conscience" and--if it's not too much to ask--DROP OUT OF THE G.D. RACE ALREADY!
Further, it has bubbled to the surface of the gossip-swamp that Bill Clinton has "privately" urged Joe to drop the Independent schtick. So who could possibly still want Joe to run? You guessed it: Karl Rove. I think it went down something like this....
LIEBERMAN: Ah you have no idea of the magnitude of this thing. If Hillary is allowed to infiltrate this world, then Joe Lieberman as you know him, Ceases to Exist! You see, right now, I have Democratic Joe, but there is also Independent Joe. That's the Joe you know, the Joe you grew up with -- Impeachment Joe, Cloture Joe, Fox News Joe, CAFTA Joe.

ROVE: I, I love that Joe.

LIEBERMAN: Me Too! And he's Dying Karl! If Democratic Joe walks through this door, he will Kill Independent Joe! A Joe, divided against itself, Cannot Stand!

(Hillary enters...don't ask me why...I haven't worked that part out yet)

LIEBERMAN: You're Killing Independent Joe! You know that, don't you?

HILLARY: Joe I don't even want to get --

LIEBERMAN: You know what word Hadassah used last night? Hnuh? Lamont!


LIEBERMAN: She got that from you!

HILLARY: Well, I didn’t tell her to say it.

LIEBERMAN: Is she the only girl in the whole world? Why can't you get find your own girl?

HILLARY: I Like Her!

LIEBERMAN: You see (to Karl). You see. You see what I’m talking about. It's all just slipping away. And you're letting it happen. (exits -- slamming the door)
Worlds are colliding! They're killing Independent Joe!

BTW, If none of this made any sense to you, watch this. And thanks to these guys for the original script :)
