DANCIN' WITH THE ONES WHAT'LL BRING HIM BACK:

No hugs or kisses for Lieberman at submarine session (Associated Press, August 24 2006)

"I did say to Joe on the way in I wasn't going to hug him," said Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell.

Lieberman, who met with other public officials at a strategy session to protect the Submarine Base New London on Thursday, is counting on the support of independents and Republicans in the general election. But he does not want to alienate Democrats.

He also did not shy away from Republicans Thursday as they marked their successful campaign a year ago to keep the New London Submarine Base open.

U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons, R-Conn., walked over to greet Lieberman when he arrived. The men shook hands and smiled.

"After you, Senator," Simmons said as the men approached the building.

"Team Connecticut," Simmons said, referring to the bipartisan campaign to keep the base open.

"I agree. It's a model," Lieberman said.

Has anyone in CT ever asked Lamont about the base?

Well, here's hoping the good people of CT decide they need Lieberman more than they need a guy with a one plank platform.

During the debate Lieberman brought up the sub base (and its 31,000 jobs) several times. Lamont acted like he didn't know anything about it.

Wow. There really are submarine races?

Oh, bases. Nevermind.
