Time for Joe to Go!
Apparently, Senator Joe Lieberman is planning to run as an Independent in November if he LOSES Connecticut's DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY next month!
Why is Joe Lieberman taking out an "insurance policy against democracy"?!?!?! Hmm...
"While I believe that I will win the Aug. 8 primary, I know that there are no guarantees in elections," Mr. Lieberman said at a brief news conference at the State Capitol with his wife, Hadassah, beside him. The results, he said, could be skewed by a low turnout in a sultry August, or a last-minute media barrage by his opponent, who has already spent more than $1 million on his campaign. "My friends," the senator said, "after 18 years of working for, fighting for and delivering for all the people of Connecticut, I want the opportunity to put my case before all the people of Connecticut in November."
Thus far, Lieberman has been endorsed by folks like plagarist Ann Coulter, "Pretty Boy" Sean Vanity Hannity, and of course Michelle Malkin. In an attempt to pick up some Joementum, Senators Biden, Boxer, and Salazar are campaigning for Lieberman in CT.
According to the Washington Post...
Sens. Joe Biden of Delaware, Barbara Boxer of California and Ken Salazar of Colorado plan to campaign in Connecticut for Lieberman between now and the Aug. 8 primary. Their goal is to reassure the party faithful of the three-term senator's loyalty to Democratic causes, including women's issues, labor and the environment.
Reproductive Justice? Ha. Lieberman continues to oppose full access for rape victims to emergency contraception. His opponent, Ned Lamont, does not.
Tim Tagaris at Ned Lamont's Official Blog sums up the problems that Democrats (like myself) have with Joe...
Sure, Senator Lieberman is not living in reality when it comes to Iraq, but that’s not all. He was wrong on the Bush/Cheney/Lieberman energy policy. He was wrong on Alito. He was wrong on denying emergency contraception to victims of sexual assault. He is consistently wrong in trade deals. He was wrong on Terri Schiavo. He was wrong to flirt with privatization. He is wrong everytime he shows up on Fox News to trash Democrats as well.
Did I mention that Joe Lieberman supports school vouchers?? Indeed a true champion of the Separation of Church and State! AH!
I think it's time for Joe to Go..
