A guy named Joe

Variety Editorial

He’s back!

Joe Lieberman, that stalwart “culture warrior,” has announced his presidential bid, promising at the outset to “take on the entertainment industry for peddling sex and violence to our children.”

Throughout his career in the Senate, Lieberman has railed against our pop culture, criticizing the ratings system, pressuring MTV to tone down content and so forth. But he also has a disturbing habit of invoking spiritual shibboleths on foreign policy as well.

Amongst all the various presidential contenders, Hollywood tends to be most suspicious of Joe Lieberman. In view of his rhetoric, understandably so.
