Another Republican For Joe

To paraphrase El Guapo, "What is happening around here today? Are pro-Joe Republicans falling from the sky?"

Joe Lieberman continues to face a fight for re-election because he has stood for principle, pure and simple. While others have retreated, Joe realizes that defeat in Iraq would be disastrous to America and to the Iraqi people.

Joe Lieberman continues to face a fight for re-election because he has strongly supported policies that have been disastrous to America and to the Iraqi people.

...a clear and unmistakable majority of the delegates of the Connecticut Democratic Party delegates stood with Joe because they appreciate his integrity and recognize his progressive record.

An unclear and unenthusiastic majority of the delegates of the Connecticut Democratic Party stood with Joe because they were afraid of payback from Boss Lieberman and his machine. Many stayed home rather than come to Hartford and feel forced to vote for him. In a secret ballot, Ned Lamont would likely have won.

Unlike his opponent, Joe didn't just recently get involved in the fight for civil rights and the environment.

Unlike his opponent, Ned didn't just recently vote for Bush's disasterous energy bill, or to allow a Justice Alito, or try to find a "compromise "with Bush on Social Security.

And, when will the press focus on the fact that Mr. Lamont chose a co-star for his first commercial who once denigrated the deaths of Americans at the hands of terrorists?

Ah, so the sliming of Kos begins. We'll hear it from Joe's mouth next.
Comments:
Well of course Lieberman's going to fight dirty. He'll probably see if he can hit Lamont's poll numbers before running independent.

And you may not have noticed, but they were two Lieberman goons at Friday's event -- well, I wouldn't call them goons, actually. They looked like nice people, and one woman actually looked way too cool to be a Lieberman tool, but those two made sure to get pictures of both the audience and of Markos and Jerome with Lamont. Fair warning.

And is this hubbub about Kos about the contractors? Kos has no love for Iraqi contractors, that's for sure.
 
Right now he's having his GOP friends do the heavy lifting, but you're right, if he plans to bolt the party, the gloves will really come off sooner rather than later.
 
Dear lord. I'd have to say that out of all the Washington pseudo-centrists (including Lieberman himself, Al From, Will Marshall, Joe Klein, and most of the staff of The New Republic), Marshall Wittman (aka Bull Moose) is the most truly vile human being. Seriously, just look at any of the entries on his blog and try not to be enraged.

BTW, Matt Tabibi wrote a fantastic, if foul-mouthed, smackdown directed at Wittman last year. I figure it's appropriate:
