Wanker of the day month

From the Hartford Courant:
Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, a lifelong Democrat and student of politics, blanked when asked if America would be better off with his party regaining control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

A Democratic victory would immeasurably boost the influence of two Connecticut friends, U.S. Reps. Rosa L. DeLauro and John B. Larson, and provide a counterbalance to the Republican Senate and White House.

"Uh, I haven't thought about that enough to give an answer," Lieberman said, as though Democrats' strong prospects for recapturing the House hadn't been the fall's top political story.

He was similarly elusive about the race for governor. Is he voting for John DeStefano Jr., a Democrat and mayor of the city where Lieberman has lived since the 1960s?

"I'm, uh, I'm having," he stammered, then laughed and said his decision would remain private.

This in a very blue state.

The nightmare scenario: Lieberman beats Lamont. Dems (less Joemental) capture 49 seats. Joe makes it offical and causcuses with the Republicans.

At this point, I don't think there is anything that will wake the DSCC up to what is going on there, but it sure would be nice if they realized Joe has shit in the hole and called his bluff. A little money and a few visits by Big Dog, et al would bury that arrogant old fuck in two weeks, max.

Not that I'm holding my breath. The good news is that this will be fresh in everyone's mind when the debate starts tomorrow afternoon. I hope Team Lamont is getting Ned all jacked up on steroids for this one.

I am sort of middle of the road in my belief in the power of positive thinking. But I think this is a case in which it applies big time. If the Democrats would simply believe they can put a stake in Lieberman's heart and win in November (as opposed to sitting back and watching the Republicans lose), they could make it so. Instead they do exactly what makes people hate them most, in a Kerry-esque dance of ontheotherhands.

Of course, there is the other aspect of this -- the fact that the DSCC hates everything about us and Ned, and really does prefer being an incumbent minority.

Pathetic. But all the more reason to support Ned.

True enough, although I suspect the motivating factor here for the DSCC minions wouldn't be that being in the minority would be so bad. It's the prospect of looking bad in the process of punting away a majority. If we wake up to a 50-48-2 senate and Joe bolts, Chuck Schumer has a whole lotta 'splaining to do.

Both Schumer and Emanuel of the DSCC have abused and exceeded their authority to 'bestow' monies on only to whom they feel worthy.

Schumer is supporting Lieberman! That's such a republican (and oh-so Jewish) thing to do.

And Emanuel is at war with Howard Dean, chairman of the DNC for control over the party. Emanuel is also 'running' Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. Talk about confused loyalties and Machiavellian maneuvers - one needs only to mention Schumer and Emanuel.

Then democrats wonder why they lose.
