Bush Refuses to Endorse GOP Nominee

Like you didn't see this coming. The Lieberman Party is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Republican Party:

White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said this morning that President Bush will not endorse Connecticut U.S. Senate candidate Alan Schlesinger (R) over Sen. Joe Lieberman even though he's the Republican nominee.

Update: A thought - isn't it hilarious how every move Lieberman has made since his loss last week has served to reinforce every point made by Lamont supporters during the primary campaign about his lack of committment to the Democratic party? These were descriptions which Joe constantly whined were scurrilous, mean-spirited personal attacks, but which he now all but embraces, in not saying a thing to counter the words of Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, Ken Mehlman, Tony Snow, and George Bush.

George Bush's Favorite Democrat, indeed.

Update 2: Election Central has the transcript of Snow's comments:

Q: Does the President support the Republican candidate for Senate in Connecticut?

MR. SNOW: The President supports the democratic process in the state of Connecticut, and wishes them a successful election in November.

I tend to think this is more of a sign that they're still trying to find a more viable candidate than it is an endorsement of Lieberman.
I don't think so. Anyone they put up in a three way race is going to be the sacrificial lamb.
