Bye, bye, Lieberman
Wow. It happened. Ned Lamont, a rich liberal businessman in Connecticut, defeated Joe Lieberman in the Democratic primary.
And with that came a resounding message to all the other wimpy Democrats who didn't know if they should or shouldn't embrace the Iraq war. And of course an even stronger and scarier message to people like Ms. Clinton, who did support the war.
The New York Times writes about the campaign by liberal bloggers to unseat Lieberman: And the results suggested that bloggers may have almost as much bite as bark, which could be significant in tight low-turnout Congressional elections this fall.
If you want to know what I wrote about Lieberman, go to my post, The Liberal Movement is a Joke.
Representative Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, the head of the Democratic House Congressional campaign, had this to say: "This shows what blind loyalty to George Bush and being his love child means."
Bye, bye Lieberman.
The irony, though, in all of this is that many liberals nowadays appear to be rich multi-millionaires on each coast, and the people who vote for Bush are the poor blue-collar workers in Kansas and the rest of America's heartland.
This is a wacko country, sometimes.
