we're not surprised that piece o' steamin crap

formerly known as da liebs is going to open the gop convention. i don't even blame him. i blame the people of connecticut who elected him. he had NO bid-nez being re-elected. he is one of the ones directly responsible for sending our men and women into harm's way in iraq (for NO reason that can be comprehended). for that alone he SHOULD have been kicked to the curb

Lieberman To Open GOP Convention

|Courant Staff Writer
The Republican National Convention will open with an appeal to Democrats and independents from the 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut.

Lieberman, a self-described "independent Democrat" since winning re-election in 2006 without his party's endorsement, issued a statement saying he intends to "urge fellow Democrats and independents to put country ahead of party in choosing John McCain as president."

Lieberman is the first of five speakers on a prime-time program released today that includes Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger of California, Vice President Dick Cheney, first lady Laura Bush and President Bush.

All five will speak on a night dedicated to highlighting the record of service of the party's presidential candidate.......

even though we've never actually met

i like to think of andy thibault as a friend of mine.
i read his blog
the cool justic report daily (well i was 'off' a few weeks when my old laptop was dying)

here's a GREAT article on him in the
waterbury republican
(i've told andy this and i will tell YOU this as well. i'd NEVER want to cross him. he's a pitbull. and unlike the story's author, i don't think that is an insult). i've seen him get (figuratively) in the face of some folk that i too would want to biotch-slap and i've seen him (figuratively) take in people under his wing - that needed taking in.

here's to you andy!

and hey, i happen to LIKE pit bulls!

He'll get in your face Litchfield blogger always eager for a cause

Andy Thibault spends a lot of time in shorts and sandals watching rabbits nibble in his Litchfield backyard. When he feels up to it, he climbs the steep stairs of his Victorian home on a quiet, tree shaded street, turns on the computer and takes on the world.Muckraking may seem misplaced in such a bucolic setting, but it works just fine for a 55-year-old man trying to recover from stage 3 colon cancer while waging a feisty campaign that could have national significance in the free-speech arena.Through his news blog, "The Cool Justice Report," Thibault is the prime mover in an effort to challenge the punishment of Avery Doninger, a Lewis S. Mills High School student from Burlington, for critical remarks she made last year on her blog about school administrators.............
