Today is a landmark day for me, and not because the nation has started the process of slow motion economic suicide. No, this is personal to me, for today I have lost a bet, something about which I have mixed emotions.
Many months ago I bet a friend who shall remain nameless (but not totally impoverished) that by this very date Joe Lieberman would be a commentator on Fox. This was a win-win bet for me, obviously. Worst case I got $5.00, best case Lieberman was not being paid to express his undying concern for the party that “left him”. Either way I sort of win.
So, I have to make arrangements to pay up. I’m actually surprised I lost this one. Fox and Lieberman seemed like a perfect match.
