Senator Joseph Lieberman
To the surprise of absolutely nobody, Ned Lamont won the Democratic primary in Connecticut. Senator Joseph Lieberman has already filed as an Independent to run for re-election to his seat. Since the Senator’s percentage of loss was only 4% (hardly a mandate although Daily Kos is characterizing it as such). And in typical moonbat fashion, Kos has the next steps all scoped out:
“Here’s what we all need to do the next few days:
1. Push Harry Reid to strip Lieberman of all committee assignments.
2. Let people know what a sore loser Lieberman is.
3. Get all Democrats — including Bill Clinton — to publicly back Ned Lamont.
4. Get the Democratic interest groups who backed Lieberman to switch allegiances in the general.
The DSCC and the DCCC will have to deal with the fact that this race will continue to suck oxygen from great pickup opportunities. And I won’t apologize for that, because as a proud Democrat, I will help in whatever way I can the Democratic nominee from the Great State of Connecticut.
The Republicans rejoiced at Lieberman’s decision to stay in. They couldn’t be happier. And let’s not talk about the lobbyists! They’re besides themselves!
Joe Lieberman is not an independent Democrat. He needs to be stripped of his committee assignments and have those handed to real Democrats. And then we need to buckle down and finish the job we started.”
Rep. Cynthia McKinney
As expected, she lost the run-off. Also as expected, she’s claiming she has been victimized. Her charges are ludicrous, her sanity is questionable and her absence from the national scene will be a relief to all, including her constituents.
