What would the Democrat Party do with a good man?

Why they would savage him of course. Joe Lieberman is a good and principled man, with the exception of that year he got hoodwinked by Al Gore, so sometimes it's hard to remember that he ran for reelection to the Senate in 2000 while also running for Vice-President. He was easily elected in Connecticut that year, although he fought tooth and nail for six weeks to keep from taking the job. So what changed?

Lieberman supports the Bush administration's efforts in the overall war effort, including the liberation of Iraq. Beyond that Joe is a pretty much a straight line party man, but in today's Democratic Party you better toe the über liberal, moveon.org mark or you will be a pariah. That being said, Lieberman may be breathing a sigh of relief and beginning to cruise to his parties nomination, which will pretty much assure reelection, now. Yes babblin' Barbra Streisand has endorsed Lieberman's opponent.

Lieberman is facing the toughest challenge he's had since wining his Senate seat in 1988, a Greenwich millionaire cable company executive named Ned Lamont who is tapping into an anger from both local and national Democrats at Lieberman for taking positions at odds with the Democrat orthodoxy. The liberal blogosphere has made defeating Lieberman one of its chief causes of 2006, poring in thousands of dollars to Lamont's campaign and constantly bashing Lieberman, especially for his fervent support of the Iraq War and standing as the strongest Democratic supporter of President Bush's policies there. Even celebrity Democratic supporters, like George Soros and Barbra Streisand, have donated to Lamont's campaign.

Joe, it may not be much but I sincerely urge all my Connecticut readers to get out there and help you at the polls. (I hope that will be enough to make you forget that whole Sore/Loserman incident)

Comments:
We love you too, RW.
 
Nicole,

No ♥s?
 
rw, i haven't read this yet, but i will return in the middle of the night!
 
mgc,

I left you a link at your place today. It seems you aren't really alone out there.
 
The libs take out another viable democrat. Perhaps the far left will be destroy the dem party and we will be left with the Republicrats and the Libertarians.

After all, today's republicrats are the dems of the fifties, today's libertarians are the republicans of the fifties and today's dems are the socialist of the fifties. So my pappy says.
 
Scooter,

I'm convinced that we need iron clad term limits. The parties all have their drawbacks, but professional office holders are becoming a disaster.
 
So, the libs are gonna dump Joe because he supports the war in Iraq. And Streisand is sending $ to his opponent. That figures. I like Joe.

I think that I will drag off to bed. All that AJC blog-name calling got tiresome today. (I did a bit of it myself.)Goldie didn't appreciate my efforts at all. Isn't that a heart breaker.

Maybe I will take a pre-vacation, relax and think kind thoughts. (No liberals allowed.) Aaaah-vacation!recreation! libation!!

PS--Did the Braves win?
 
Dusty,

Goldie gets bent out of shape easily.

Did the Braves win? Look here!
 
democrats can't even agree on agreeing within their own party? i wish people would look at history and see what has happened when we have cut and run - vietnam. it was a disaster and we disgraced the honor of all who fought and died there. we cannot just cut and run because this war is not popular. is any war popular? i guess it would be nice if they could dismantle from within and save conservatives a lot of trouble.
 
RW:

I never really understood the Kerry/Lieberman hookup for 2004. I guess Kerry was somebody else then...well yes indeed...he was, wasn't he.

See how easy it is to fool a liberal.

I posted a quick little comment at ml's this morning and the darn thing went down. I think they need you over there. My goodness, you can even make "hearts". ^^^ Now that's a talent that ml is sure missing.

Dusty:

I like Lieberman, too. Stands firm in the face of adversity. That's an admirable quality to me. May I also say, that I admire your firm commitment to America and all she stands for. I read you at Wooten's site.
 
OO,

So you killed the blog!....no, I killed the blog...

.

I killed the blog....we all killed the blog


/South Park off

If they hired me they would have to hire DavidU so someone could tell me what I was doing.
 
Don't mind me. I'm just spending some extra time on your blog to try and understand whatever it is that I don't understand.

Oh, and I don't know how to create that complicated heart thing you do. See, told you that I'm easily confuzzled!
 
Nicole,

While you're here maybe you can tell me why your blog hates me!

You might want to ask Eric(k?) if it blocked me for trying to use "span" commands. The other thing I'd be interested to know is why the "span" changes show up just fine in your preview, but don't come through on the post.
 
RW, you can say that again.

How about a legislative cleansing? How many laws does this nation of "freedom" have on the books now?

Was it Jefferson who said something along the lines of; 'if I was told I could only to go to heaven with a single party, I would have to ask how hot it is in hell'

I'm out
 
oo,

I just read your kind words. Yesterday on Wooten's blog, I was accused of being a kluklux klanner and sounding like David Duke. Sorta discouraging.

I started my pre-vacation by having Sloppy Joes for dinner last night. (We're really BIG TIME here.)

Have fun at VBS. You're a brave soul with loads of patience.
