CNN: Lieberman accuses Lamont of lying about blogger relationships

Lieberman accuses Lamont of lying about blogger relationships

Joe Lieberman's Connecticut Senate campaign is accusing Democratic challenger Ned Lamont of lying about his relationship with bloggers after a liberal web site posted a doctored photo of Lieberman in blackface on the web.

Questioned by reporters after campaigning in Bridgeport, Conn. about the controversial graphic, Lamont reportedly said, "I don't know anything about the blogs. I'm not responsible for those. I have no comment on them."

The Lieberman campaign calls that characterization a "lie" and demanded Lamont to break any connections with the blogger who posted the blackface graphic.

Jane Hamsher of the pro-Lamont Web site Firedoglake.com posted the graphic on HuffingtonPost.com. It portrays Lieberman campaigning in blackface alongside Bill Clinton, an apparent attempt to criticize Lieberman's appeals to black voters in Connecticut....

Lamont's spokesperson, Liz Dupont-Diehl, said that the campaign has condemned the blackface image and asked for it to be removed from the site. She said Lamont will not sever connections with Hamsher, however....

1. Well, if it's guilt by association they want...
...Tom DeLay endorsed Lieberman. Doesn't that make Joe a criminal, as well? ;)

5. There really is a Lamont commercial like that.

"Ned's wife says he makes bad coffee.

Ned can't dance."

Etc.

It's brilliant.

3. Wait a minute...Firedoglake superceded Ned Lamont.
How could FDL be a "Lamont web site" if it was created before Lamont came on the scene? So, does that mean that anyone who wound up supporting Ned after he announced is also "part of the Lamont campaign?"

Joe is whiney-assed loser.

8. I think fundraising is an issue --- Firedoglake raised $50,000...
along with two other blogs, for Lamont:

"According to the fundraising site ActBlue.com, Hamsher and two other bloggers have raised over $50,000 for Lamont's Senate campaign."

11. Oh, goody, this should be FUN!
So, we can find the list of Bush's contributors and call them "members of his campaign?" That works for me!

4. A tasteless act...
By someone at Firedog Lake. That said, if Lieberman thinks that this is an issue he can run on, he has slipped the surly bonds of sanity. He's also toast.

15. Why is it? Every time I read
something about Holy Joe, I burst into uncontrollable laughter that lasts for 5 minutes.

I think the clincher was yesterday's thread about Holy Joe & the Kiss Float which is an ugly rendition of Lieberman kissing Bush. The statues are on top of a car. They've been taking it around to all of Lieberman's campaign appearances.

It was so funny, I can't remember when I've laughed so much.

And now this....Lieberman in a blackface?
