Lamont Decries Lieberman Terror Remarks (ANDREW MIGA, 8/13/06, The Associated Press)

Democratic Senate nominee Ned Lamont, the anti-war candidate who toppled Sen. Joe Lieberman in the Connecticut primary, says he was surprised by Lieberman and Vice President Dick Cheney's claims that his Iraq views could embolden terrorists. [...]

Lamont said Lieberman's swipe at his candidacy "sounded an awful lot" like Cheney.

Way to keep a storyline that's hurting you going and to remind voters that Senator Lieberman is with the Administration against terrorism.

Ha, he'll be a paranoid wreck by November.

"I am appalled that Senator Lieberman--old Rape-Gurney Joe--is criticizing me. I call upon that Bush-kissing, bloodsucking Mossad agent to engage in the same reasoned, civil discourse that we in the Lamont campaign do."

Linking Lieberman to the Bush administration is what got Lamont the Senate primay win in CT. It shouldn't work in the general (as the % of lefty nut roots are lower in the general) but that is what his campaign is based on.

"Terrorism is a criminal matter, for the courts to decide. Senator Lieberman and these Republican monsters have ruined our country and our lives by fighting it."

There's the Democratic position. And with Howard Dean calling for Lieberman to drop out, it's official!

Of course, Joe has actually won an election or two to national office, which the moonbats have ignored.

The focus groups having been consulted, the party line has now been consolidated. Lieberman is a Cheney clone and must drop out to save the world.

Big article in our morning paper. Just a little hint that the focus groups didn't go their way, it's Cheney who's being made out to be the villain, not Bush. Curious, that eh?

No, not curious at all. 'cause everybody knows that Bush is just the puppet and Cheney is the real President.

Quick, somebody start a rumor that Connecticut is about to sign a contract with Diebold for touch-screen voting machines, just in time for the November election.

That'll get 'em going.

The President (an alum) or Secy. Rice should give a major foreign policy address at Yale around Oct. 28. New Haven just might burn to the ground.

Hey, some of us have daughters at Yale.
