Rove called Lieberman on voting day
Always said the POS was a Repuke shill...

<clips>

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (Reuters) - Karl Rove, a top political adviser to President Bush said on Thursday he had called Sen. Joseph Lieberman to wish him well in the Democratic primary in Connecticut this week.

Top Republicans, including Vice President Dick Cheney, have taken the unusual step of publicly commenting on the results of the Democratic primary that Lieberman lost on Tuesday to an anti-war challenger.

"I called him. He's a personal friend," Rove told reporters traveling with Bush to Wisconsin. The call was made late Tuesday afternoon, the day of the primary won by challenger Ned Lamont, who painted Lieberman as too cozy with Bush.

Rove said he called Lieberman "and wished him well on his election that night," and that reports he had offered to help the senator were "completely inaccurate."

1. "He's a personal friend."
Does anyone now harbor even a shred of doubt about Joe Lieberman's agenda?

8. About that...
I would imagine they got the contract for the hosting going a while ago, before Lamont was a blip on the radar. Frankly if I had been Lieberman a year ago I wouldn't have even guessed that there would be a serious primary challenge. And I don't think Lieberman really grasped the national nature of that primary until the last couple of days before, which is why he lost.
