Here's a jaw-dropper: Joe Lieberman, former Democratic Party vice-presidential nominee, puts his personal interests so far ahead of the party's interests that he is refusing to rule out a run as an independent if he loses the party's nomination to Ned Lamont. Update, April 9: Here's the astounding quote from Lieberman.
Here's another jaw-dropper: Connecticut's other senator, Chris Dodd -- a former DNC Chair! -- also refuses to say whether he'll support Lamont if Lamont wins the Democratic nomination.
Puts Barack Obama's loyalty to Lieberman -- and his opposition to the Alito filibuster, and his opposition to censure, and his support for newcomer Tami Duckworth over long-time Democratic loyalist Christine Cegelis -- into perspective, doesn't it?
We don't need to start a new party. We need to reclaim our party from these people, so they can start their own third party, with Lieberman as its nominee. The Good Old Boy Party, they can call it. G.O.B. -- just like the G.O.P., only a tiny bit to its left, at least alphabetically.
My angry suit's only been back on for 24 hours and it's already feeling really comfortable again...
Donate, donate, donate to Ned Lamont here. It's the most important race in the country; put some spare change behind it. And visit ConnecticutBlog to make one little phone call to put the fear of the electorate into Sen. Dodd. Reportedly, his office doesn't even ask where you're from when you call.
