Sharpton, Lieberman Exchange Barbs
In a sharply worded letter released Monday, the Rev. Al Sharpton accused Senator Joseph Lieberman of resorting to flagrant race baiting in criticizing opponent Ned Lamonts campaign appearances with the black leader.

You never once attacked or questioned my commitment to Israel or any racial group in private or public during the 2004 presidential primary campaign, Sharpton wrote in the 800-plus-word missive. For you to now totally flip the script to hopefully incite some race based hysteria in a desperate attempt to save your political career is beneath the dignity of the man I thought I got to know.

.......

In response to Sharptons letter, a Lieberman spokesperson lashed out at Lamont, who is currently trailing the senator by 10 percentage points, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released September 28.

These are extreme and divisive attacks from one of the Ned Lamonts closest advisors, said Tammy Sun in an interview with the Forward. Once again, Ned Lamont is demonstrating his lack of interest in providing voters with new ideas and instead offering only more of the same negativity.

2. Lieberman is playing the Semitic card, the only one he has left
The propagandists of the Israel's Lobby, which holds American foreign policy hostage when it comes to the Middle East, are already sending the message that American Jews "cannot afford to lose Israel's best friend in the Senate."

Disgusting!
