Mr. Lamont, your campaign video has arrived

via My Left Nutmeg :: The Lieberman Effect
Foxnews asks "Will Connecticut senator's independent run help embattled GOP candidates?"

Joe's response? "Well, they should have thought of that before they had the primary."

I'd run that clip, followed by The Kiss, followed by that clip, followed by Ken Mehlman refusing to endorse the Republican nominee, followed by The Kiss, in an endless loop, as the Lamont campaign commercial. And I'd superimpose "Now we know what 'Connecticut for Lieberman' really means" at the end.

What a self-centered, egotistical prick.

i think lieberman's response was, "i guess they should of thought of that during the primary." misquoted on my left nutmeg, too. a small but meaningful difference.

he's still a prick, of course.

So Lieberman's comment was in a sense more (internally) logical, but I don't see why the difference is meaningful.

"before they had the primary" seems to mean that they (i would assume the democratic party) should have made a choice other than to have the primary.

"during the primary" seems to mean that they (democratic voters) should have voted differently.

the difference is meaningful because the misquote implies that Lieberman is opposed to the democratic process. that this is the meaning inferred by people who read the quote is clear from many of the responses at my left nutmeg.
i'm no fan of Lieberman, i just believe we should keep the debate honest.

Well, OK, I see your point. Perhaps I am being uncharitable, but (a) I think you may be reading too much into a careful parsing of his exact words, and (b) can't we infer Lieberman's attitude about the democratic process from the fact that the petzele has chosen to ignore the results of his own primary, and thinks "Connecticut for Lieberman," rather than the other way 'round, is the appropriate name for his fragmentation grenade of a campaign?
