Lieberman falls farther behind in Connecticut race

By John Whitesides, Political Correspondent
HARTFORD, Connecticut (Reuters) - U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman, a one-time Democratic vice presidential candidate now dragged down by his support for the Iraq war, trails a challenger from his own party by double digits ahead of a key political test next week, a poll released on Thursday showed.
Lieberman, a three-term Senate veteran, has been pummeled by millionaire cable television executive Ned Lamont over Iraq and for his willingness to work with Republican President George W. Bush. He is behind by 13 percentage points among likely voters, the Quinnipiac University poll found.
The increasingly bitter primary campaign has drawn national attention and is an early gauge of anti-war sentiment among U.S. voters before November's elections that will determine control of the U.S. Congress. ......

Raising Their Voices

Sharpton, Jackson Praise Lamont
August 3, 2006 By CHRISTOPHER KEATING Capitol Bureau Chief

BRIDGEPORT -- The Rev. Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton urged Connecticut voters Wednesday night to send a message next week to the nation about the direction of the Democratic Party by choosing Ned Lamont in the U.S. Senate primary.The two former presidential candidates drew a crowd of more than 200 into the basement of the Mount Aery Baptist Church and told them to vote for Lamont over the incumbent, Joe Lieberman, and for New Haven Mayor John DeStefano for governor.
"The nation's eyes are on Connecticut," Jackson said. "This is a battleground state about the direction of our nation."Sharpton delivered a fiery speech that brought more supporters to their feet with each sentence as he raised an analogy about a bird and the direction the nation is taking..................

i'm cranky today

well crankIER today i should say. i'm staying at my dad's for a couple of days due to the heat. i live on the third floor of a three family with NO ac so i think i would literally die if i were to sleep home this week.

last night i went to bed (in my OLD bed from when i was a teenager) and suddenly awakened a short time later. my dad wasn't home but my sister (who lives with him was). turns out i woke up because there was no power in my room. my sister was running all of the lights, the tv, the fans AND the ac and the washer and dryer and blew a fuse. not all of the power was out just the power that would keep me cool. she tracked the old man down who finally came home and after another 30 mintues found the blown fuse. of course he didn't have any that size so he had to go find one. ANOTHER 30 or 45 minutes later, he was back. well he eventually replaced the fuse and i was cool again, but day um, i got LESS than my normal 3 or 4 hours. so if you know me STAY AWAY FROM ME TODAY (it's for your OWN good)

even the nyt knows it's time for da liebs to go

and time for ned lamont to be a senator from connecticut.. the war HAS TO STOP. we have NO BUSINESS being in iraq and we have NO BUSINESS goading other countries into war in the middle east. we have NO BUSINESS torturing prisoners. we have NO BUSINESS standing by and letting the people of the world die. hell, the king and his court cannot even care for their OWN citizens (katrina for example). a change must come and it must come now. and no, i'm NOT a hysterical anti-war blogger trying to oust a bipartisan senator. i'm trying to oust someone who supports a war we have no moral, ethical or ANY reason to be in. our men and women are dying every day. FOR NO REASON. the iraqis did NOT blow up the world trade center. why are we killing them?

A Senate Race in Connecticut

Published: July 30, 2006
Earlier this year, Senator Joseph Lieberman’s seat seemed so secure that — legend has it — some people at the Republican nominating convention in Connecticut started making bleating noises when the party picked a presumed sacrificial lamb to run against the three-term senator, who has been a fixture in Connecticut politics for more than 35 years.
But Mr. Lieberman is now in a tough Democratic primary against a little-known challenger, Ned Lamont. The race has taken on a national character. Mr. Lieberman’s friends see it as an attempt by hysterical antiwar bloggers to oust a giant of the Senate for the crime of bipartisanship. Lamont backers — most of whom seem more passionate about being Lieberman opponents — say that as one of the staunchest supporters of the Iraq war, Mr. Lieberman has betrayed his party by cozying up to President Bush...........

.........If Mr. Lieberman had once stood up and taken the lead in saying that there were some places a president had no right to take his country even during a time of war, neither he nor this page would be where we are today. But by suggesting that there is no principled space for that kind of opposition, he has forfeited his role as a conscience of his party, and has forfeited our support. ...............
