do YOU want this man representing the fair state of connecticut

and it's good citizens? i sure as shite don't. i don't want someone who supports king george's unjust war based upon lies. i also don't want someone who supports hastert

da liebs new commerical has a bunch o' folk saying the world will come to an end (not in those exact words mind you) if ned lamont wins in november. i for one disagree. i think the world IS coming to an end NOW with king george and all of his supporters reigning (and yeah, that includes da liebs)

Lieberman continues attacking critics of sexual predator cover up

So let's see...a congressman gets exposed as a child sexual predator [1], having Internet sex with underage pages between House votes [2]. A fellow Republican congressman exposes evidence that the Speaker of the House was informed [3] of the sexual predator's behavior, and did nothing about it for months or even years. The Speaker does not deny the evidence. Yet, when lawmakers call for the Speaker to resign, what does Joe Lieberman do? He focus his major attacks not on the sexual predator, not on the Speaker who covered up the scandal - but instead, he attacks critics of the Speaker.
No really, this is not a joke. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Joe Lieberman's comments from today in Torrington [4] about the scandal, in which he reiterates his earlier attacks [5] on Ned Lamont and others for calling for Hastert's immediate resignation in the wake of the sexual predator scandal:
"Right now I’d say this thing is spinning out of control, it’s become another partisan frenzy in Washington, that’s the wrong way to go at it."
So let me get this straight: Joe Lieberman's major reaction to this awful, disgusting and horrific scandal is to berate as "partisan" those who want just a smidgeon of accountability? Of course, he never explains how it can be "partisan" when many of the loudest calls for Hastert's immediate resignation are from conservatives [6]. But even beyond the dishonesty is the sheer shamelessness of it all. These pious declarations are coming from the same man who used the consensual affair between Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky to build his own name recognition by parading himself all over the Washington talk show circuit as Mr. Moral. .......
