Keep Your Eye on Connecticut Today

Today in Connecticut, they’re having a Primary. Joe Lieberman is facing a challenge from the left — a large percentage of CT residents have decided that they’re tired of Lieberman’s support of the Iraq War and his parrotting support of the Bush Administration on a number of other issues, and so a political novice, Ned Lamont, is challenging him for the right to run for Senate in November…..and it looks like he might win.

This challenge from the Left is a display of the dissatisfaction that a lot of voters are feeling about not only the Bush Junta, but the spineless Democrats who refuse to oppose them. Naturally, the Conservatives are scared shitless about what this might signify — so they’ve cast this as “extremist Liberals, backed almost entirely by the moonbat Blogosphere, staging a revolt.” If Lamont wins, expect to hear the true significance of this — that voters have had enough of the direction this country is heading in, and are willing to call both Republicans *and* Democrats to the carpet for it — buried under a “extremist bloggers” storyline. Mark my words.

This should give you an idea of how scared the NeoCon Corporate Oligarchy is — two screen captures from their propoganda outlet, Fox News:

Even bolder. They’re not even disguising it any more.

Think about that.

Think about what it means.

  1. Oh. My. God.

    Have the Democrats forgotten the lessons of 9/11?

    Sweet Mary. How do they even pretend at holding a non-biased position?

    It disgusts me.

  2. Though let’s not forget Lieberman’s bluster about running as an independent if he doesn’t get the Dems nomination. If that’s the case, watch the Repubs back him over their own candidate come November and get him back. That would be teh suck but not out of their league to do.

  3. Nope–I’d be willing to bet that the Republicans will simply offer him money and campaign support, so that he’ll split the non-Republican vote with Lamont, making it easier for the Republican candidate to win.

    You know, just like they’re currently doing in Pennsylvania.

  4. I don’t think they even pretend anymore. I think they’ve been about giving the right-leaning masses truthiness for a long time now.

  5. They’ll probably hope for a split vote, but I suppose there’s a good chance they’d be mistaken and they’d only be splitting their own vote.

  6. The irony in all this “whacky bloggers support inexperienced candidate” crap is that Bush himself ran as a “Washington outsider.” Gee, what a concept.

    Oh, and the idea that a party should actually hold one of its own accountable for their views? Shocking!

  7. That’s one part of election law that Ohio actually gets right. We have a “sore loser” law that states if you lose a primary, you cannot run in the general election. It’s coming back to bite the GOP this fall since Bob Ney dropped out of his Congressional race. They were going to pick State Sen. Joy Padgett to run in his place, but she ran as Jim Petro’s running mate in the GOP gubernatorial primary and is therefore ineligible for the election.

    Ohio election law actually working in favor of the Democrats. Isn’t that a sign of the Apocalypse?

  8. I thought the lesson of 9/11 was not to mess in the domestic affairs of others or their wackkos may have a point when they come kill you…or that may just be me.
