From the Today Show, via Atrios:

LAUER: Let me go back to that line in your speech last night. I'll paraphrase it if you don't mind. You said, for the sake of your state, your country and my party, you will not let these results stand. It's a nice line in the speech, but the fact of the matter is there are a lot of Democrats who think that now going forward you are putting your own personal ambitions above the good of the party.

How do you respond to that?

LIEBERMAN: Well, I think it's time for somebody to break through the dominance of both parties by the margins of the parties, which happens in primaries. I think it's time for somebody to break through and say, Hey, let's cut out the partisan nonsense.
This is right up there with the "virtual tie for third" nonsense he was spinning after he got his ass handed to him in the 04 New Hampshire primary. The magnificent turnout by the voters of Connecticut completely dismantles this piece of his rationale for continuing; Lamont didn't win because the only folks in town to vote were broke, burned-out McGovernites with "Fight the Man" bumperstickers on their rusting microbuses.

If Joe insists on staying in, he's going to do it with Republican money and the implicit or explicit endorsement of the Republican party. The voters of Connecticut have an easy choice: they can vote for Lieberman or they can vote for a Democrat. But no matter what he says, they can't vote for both.

Simple, really.

Tweety had a special post-election show from CT last night (amazing in itself). One of the funnier moments was when he asked Joe's campaign manager if he was expecting an endorsement from Dubya. Man, he looked uncomfortable.
