110. Author totally has no clue of what Lieberman is doing.
Bemildred is right, this is just bullshit.

Lieberman just thumbed his nose at the voters. He effectively said I don't care what you think, I don't care how you vote. He just said it did not matter to him.

This is not about Lieberman. This is about our party, our primaries, and our Democracy.
