Connecticut for Cheney
What does it say about Joe Lieberman that there's an entire article out today about his whining about the personal tragedy of Chris Dodd even paying lip service to supporting the Democratic candidate, but he will almost certainly refuse to say a word condemning these reprehensible remarks:
In an interview with ABC television, Cheney cited the example of antiwar Democratic Senate candidate Ned Lamont’s primary win against incumbent Joe Lieberman to suggest al Qaeda militants would draw messages from the vote.
Lieberman, a supporter of the war, is now running as an independent after losing the Democratic primary.
“I think when they (militant groups) see something happen such as happened in Connecticut this year with the Democratic party in effect (having) purged Joe Lieberman, primarily over his support for the president and the war, that says to them that their strategy is working,” Cheney said on ABC’s “This Week.”
