Santorum For Lieberman



Not surprising, given that the two Republican colleagues now share the same "Democrat-slaying" pollster, Neil Newhouse (via sufi at MLN):

Here's the letter they sent out:

Bob Casey, Jr. has traveled across the Commonwealth claiming that he is independent and stands outside of Democrat party lines on important issues. He also continues to criticize Senator Santorum for working with President Bush on important issues -- issues like protecting Israel and efforts to stabilize the Middle East.

Recently, U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman, a well-known supporter of Israel and the Jewish community, lost a narrow Democratic primary election in Connecticut against challenger Ned Lamont. As you may know, Lieberman has decided to run as an Independent in the upcoming general election. You may not be shocked to find out that Bobby Casey, Jr. DOES NOT SUPPORT Senator Lieberman in the upcoming election.


This is just part of Newhouse's likely expansive efforts to use Lieberman in races throughout the country to try to keep Republicans in control of Congress. Newhouse is also working for Gov. Rell (R) and Rep. Simmons (R) in Connecticut. Anything he does for Lieberman will be to help out his other clients.

Democrats, wake up.
Comments:
Democrats wake up and get Joe Lieberman out of this race now. How brazen and outrageous that Republicans are using Lieberman's defeat in the primary to appeal to Jewish voters in a Pennsylvania race! Its more of the tactic of smearing the voters and they are shameless. I'd say Lieberman needs to be asked about it but really, he needs to get out of the race.
 
Leave it to the Repugs and Holy Joe. Crossbranding Repugs with that great Dem, Joe.
 
Don't forget about Joe Lieberman's many other far-right endorsements:

Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill Kristol, William F. Buckley... All of these great conservative minds are ardent, vocal supporters of Joe Lieberman.

what I find funny is that when someone else postulates that joe lieberman's ardent irrational support for bush's endless occupation of iraq may have more to do with joe's concern for israel's homeland security than america's homeland security, there are some who immediately jump up and cry "anti-semitism" -

the ironic thing is that the pro-israel neocon types like lieberman and perle and wolfowitz and kristol who pushed hard for our invasion of iraq have actually enabled israel's worst enemy, iran, to become a major ME player & mover & shaker!

goin' down with joe and santorum in november will also be the pro-israel neocon fanatics who treasonously thought that the highest & best use of american blood and treasure was to make the ME more "israel-friendly" -

now, I truly believe that white bread protestant cracker types like bush and cheney don't give a damn about jews or israel, and invaded iraq strictly for the oil and the halliburton/bechtel reconstruction contracts, but the pro-israel neocons like perle and feith and wolfowitz and lieberman jumped on that pig and rode it for all it's worth, for israel's benefit -
 
exactly Hartford. Damned Jews! If only they would leave Palestine alone there would be peace in the middle east. Sounds very familiar
