Joe Lieberman actually is George Bush – developing

In spite of his new appeal to Democratic voters on the stump to ignore criticism from challenger Ned Lamont in the Connecticut Democratic primary, that he is not George Bush, sources are confirming that Lieberman is actually Bush, and that he dons an almost impenetrable disguise when appearing as Lieberman. Lieberman’s wife, Hadassah, a well known lobbying consultant, has professed ignorance to the arrangement to this point, but has confessed to several reporters on the campaign trail that she has been a party to this for years. “During the day, he is with me. At night, he goes home to Laura,” she was heard to say, thinking she was speaking off the record.

“If you notice, most of the appearances that show them together are from where the President has his double on display,” says Democratic consultant and former Lieberman aid Hank Greenburg. Greenburg is referring to a practice long discussed in insider circles, in that Bush is often supplanted by an alter ego, a look-alike named Ted Racine, at gatherings like his 2002 State of the Union address, where Lieberman was the recipient of a famous kiss by the President. Racine officially works for the Secret Service, and is part of a detail that protects the President in the event of threats to his safety. Several signing cermonies where the two appear together similarly occur when Bush’s double is standing in for the President.

“It is a hell of a disguise, when Bush appears in public as Lieberman,” Greenburg said, “but the truth is that they are actually the same guy. It’s a strange game they are playing here, and I haven’t seen a similar ruse in all my years of forecasting these races.”
