Quote Of The Day

"I hope that after this is over we can get Joe Lieberman, all of us, even the ones that get along greatly with Joe, and beat the s--t out of him."

- Ken Delacruz of the Metal Trades Union, at the AFL-CIO convention today (via WTNH).

Update (& Bumped): Spazeboy has the video:

That's what a Lieberman supporter at the convention was saying. And William Yardley at the Times reports that the actual yeas and nays were pretty damn close:

After the vote, Mr. Olsen was asked whether the "nays," which were not far below the "yeas" in volume, suggested that labor leaders were split over the endorsement, and he noted that no one had challenged the vote after it was completed.

this looks like a repeat of the dem state convention, where the establishment pig bosses intimidated the captains to tow the lieberman line, but underneath all that it was pretty much 50/50 -

this union endorsement scares me not one whit, just like joe's 66% at the dem state convention was nothing to worry about either, because both the dem state convention attendees and the union convention attendees here are themselves a paltry handful of voters who fail to represent the real rank-and-file voters who are gonna show up at the primary and go big for ned.
