Dan Gerstein's Greatest Hits

Uh, Dan... when your boss disregards the results of a record-turnout party primary he ran in and lost, isn't he really "purging" himself from the Democratic Party? As noted below, the DSCC agrees - Joe is no longer a Democrat. End of story.

On a related note, how does Dan Gerstein retain any shred of credibility with reporters? In a matter of a few months, in both official and unofficial capacities with the campaign, Gerstein has managed to make an absolute joke out of both himself and his candidate almost every time he opens his mouth. And he makes a joke out of the reporters who repeat his increasingly laughable claims without challenging them.

A quick and noncomprehensive list of Dan Gerstein's lies, blunders, and inconsistencies:



This is just a small sampling of Gerstein's work for Lieberman this cycle. He continually misleads and lies to reporters, making them look like fools. They need to stop taking him seriously.

Late Update: Of course, these are just the 10 or so "greatest hits." There's much more:

Ouch!

This is like a ton of bricks on Dannyboy's head.

Great post. He's almost as much fun rip apart than Spazeboy's love interest.
 
It is a great post. I hope someone in the MSM actually reads it. Otherwise, what good are the facts?
 
Where did Gerstein come from? Has he always been on Lieberman's payroll?
 
Add another one:

"Gerstein took issue with Orman's claim that Lieberman is wants "a do-over," bending the rules so he can run twice for the same race.

"It's not a do-over," Gerstein said. "It's just like saying that Ned Lamont got a do-over after he lost the convention."
