Joe Lieberman (D-CT) Insists on Walking to Work

Have you ever had to work on an off day? You may not have liked it, but if you have a job that you care about and you're a team player, you come in with minimal drama. As it turns out, Joe Lieberman (D-CT), an Orthodox Jew, had to work this past Saturday, and he decided to walk the full five miles to the Capitol. Why? Because the Old Testament says you can't make fire on Saturday.

But I'm all about problem-solving, and I have some good news for Joe Lieberman (D-CT) in case he has to work again on a Saturday. There is a way to get to work without walking, and it is:

GET IN A CAR AND DRIVE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DOES. YOU RIDICULOUS SUPERSTITIOUS BABY.

Most people get over "Step on a crack/Break your mother's back" by around second grade.

I call crap on this post, Mike.

Walking to work hurts nobody. In fact, Joe will emit less pollution than he would by driving.

He didn't decide to skip the vote. He just walked there. He didn't make anyone else walk there. He didn't even give the stink-eye to those that drove.

There are plenty of things to be upset with Joe about, but this isn't one of them. It's silly, but it doesn't hurt anyone.

If someone walks to work all the time because they want the exercise or they're trying to avoid the emissions, fine. If it's a grown-up doing it because a thirty-century old book says so, I call crap on that.
