Today's nutshell moment

Lieberman campaign files forms to run as petitioning candidate -
Democratic U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman filed paperwork Monday that will allow him to collect signatures to petition his way onto the November ballot if he loses an August primary.

Lieberman's campaign announced the move in an e-mail to reporters.

The three-term senator faces a tough Aug. 8 primary challenge from Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont. Lieberman, who has been criticized by fellow Democrats for his support of the war in Iraq and a perceived closeness with President Bush, is popular among many unaffiliated and Republican voters in Connecticut.

Lieberman also filed papers with the secretary of the state's office Monday to create a new party called Connecticut for Lieberman.

If Dubya's kissing cousin deserved re-election in any way, shape or form, I would think he would make it clear he understands that what his constituents want to know is whether Lieberman is for Connecticut, and not the other way around.
