Would you be surprised to hear the Senator Joseph Lieberman actually said he would be interested in getting Glenn's "Being George Washington" as a Hanukkah present?
The Hill reports:
We asked the Connecticut independent what gift he’s hoping for this Hanukkah. After singing a commendable rendition of the chorus of “All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth” (and pointing out that he’s equipped with those two vital chompers), Lieberman said, “I don’t want to be too schmaltzy, if I may use the term to go with Hanukkah — just the company of my family.”
But when pressed to divulge some material goods he plans to put on his holiday wish list, he paused before saying with a smile, “Well, actually, this is not a political statement. I’m fascinated in Glenn Beck’s new book about George Washington. I noticed it was on the best-seller list.”
“I’ve always thought that Sen. Lieberman was brilliant, but his choice in holiday gifts confirms it. I just wish more of our politicians would follow his lead and be willing to look toward our Founders for guidance on how to address the issues we face today,” Beck told ITK in an email.
