“I’m proud to say that the tide has turned in Iraq and we’re winning that war,” Lieberman said. “And if we don’t let down our troops, they’re going to bring home a victory that will protect us here at home from today’s threat — totalitarian terrorist Islamism that’s trying to take our liberty from us.”
Yeah, that war. 'Cos we got to get ready for the next war, right N-Pod?
I am disappointed not just because I lost, but because the old politics of partisan polarization won today. For the sake of our state, our country and my party, I cannot and will not let that result stand.
Joe, snap out of it - this has nothing to do with partisanship - you were beaten by a member of your own party. Are you really this stupid, this destructive? Do you think you're a Republican?
Respectfully, no. I am committed to this campaign, to a different kind of politics, to bringing the Democratic Party back from Ned Lamont, Maxine Waters to the mainstream, and for doing something for the people of Connecticut. That's what this is all about: which one of us, Lamont or me, can do more for the future of our people here in Connecticut.
Joe, the people of Connecticut told you that their future doesn't include you. Eighteen years back Joe - remember when you promised to serve only 3 terms? Remember, just yesterday, when you said you got what the voters were trying to tell you? Don't you understand that your selfish quest makes the primary process meaningless?
No Joe, you are behaving like a spoiled child whose rattle has been taken from him. You claim to know what's going on, but you'll go back to D.C. and resume servicing the Dear Leader. Voters? Fuck 'em, says Joe. Holy Joe knows what's best for Connecticut, not those damn voters.
Do us all a favor Joe - quit now. At least you can exit with a shred of dignity. If you don't, you'll remain a Republican tool, oblivious and hated. What'll it be Joe?
The General, ever in service to the Glorious Conservative Christian Cultural Revolution, live blogs the Lieberman debacle here and here. And Firedoglake explains that Joe's website crashed because of Joe's cheapness, not because it was hacked.
