Which Lieberman flushed during an on-air radio interview?
New Haven Advocate
Who hasn't stunk up a bathroom and blamed it on their spouse once in their life? But to do it live on-air?
Sen. Joe Lieberman was on WPLR's Chaz & AJ morning show this week shilling for John McCain when all of a sudden - FLUSH! - a toilet goes off in the background. (See attached audio, fast forward to minute 5:49).
The clip was first posted by blogger CTBob and made the rounds to Firedoglake and AlterNet, complete with accompanying hand-flushing video and and great poo-related comments like "gives a whole new meaning to 'sitting senator'" and "that's what a lot of Democrats think of his policies anyway" and "multi-tasking." Hilarious. But right after the flush, the clip cuts off...
Joe's talking up McCain when you can hear (quiety, to be sure) a toilet flush in the background. After a bunch of hullabaloo from the hosts, Lieberman says, "You're hallucinating." Then Joe blames the wife.
Joe: "Sweetheart, I hate to tell you this, sweetheart, they just heard the toilet flush."
Chaz: "Blame it on your wife -- real nice Senator!"
Joe: "It's not me....I'm sitting at the desk in her bedroom. There's another member of my family, who I will not mention but we're very close. Apparently she is using the facility....Now she just said to me, the next sound you will hear is the shower. This is not an enormous place we have in Stamford, but it's nice."
Bet John McCain wouldn't flush the toilet while Lieberman was on the phone. Maybe it's time to trade up, eh, Senator?
