College Republicans organizing for Lieberman

Subject: Unconventional Primary Campaign Opportunity (LIEBERMAN)

Republicans,

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. In June, I informed you all of a campaign opportunity for State Senator Tom Kean race for U.S. Senate in NJ. Continuing the tradition of letting you about summer campaign opportunities here is a much more unconventional option:

Incumbent Senator Joe Lieberman (Democratic Primary)
Lieberman is facing a tough primary fight versus far-left anti war activist Ned Lamont.
----------------------------------------------------------------
August 4-9th Primary Campaigning:

Elissa Harwood '09 (NOT A CLUB MEMBER) has organized a series of buses departing on Friday August 4 from Washington DC (6:30 Foggy Bottom Metro) and NYC, destination: Hartford, CT

People interested in campaigning for Lieberman in the Democratic Primary will have lodging accommodations paid for (by his campaign), as well as food and transportation.

Buses would bring you back on August 9th.

If Interested, E-mail: XXX@Princeton.EDU or call her
at (757)-XXX-XXXX.

Joe is desperate; down by double digits in the polls with just days to go before the primary. I predict he will (a) lose to Lamont, (b) run as an independent, and (c) if he wins, go ahead and change to the Dark Side and caucus with the Pukes.

It's all about clinging to (perceived) power, and Joe is hanging on for dear life.

3. How can Joe even call himself a Democrat, with a straight face?
This, after the "let me think about it" response to the question about running as a Republican, should remove ANY lingering doubt: Joe is about as much a Democrat as Zell Miller. Personally, I miss the days when you could challenge somebody to a duel ...

2. Somebody should be there to greet the "Young Hilter youth"
With signs that say, "STAY OUT OF OUR BUSINESS."

4. So Holy Joe is actively recruiting repubs to influence the Dem primary?
This is a human being with no ethics. This is a human being with no love for his state. He is not a man, he's a walking bag of flesh, pride, ego, and a sense of entitlement.

And he is in no way a Democrat.

5. But ... but ... he's the "Conscience of the Senate!"
What a joke!

Bye-bye Joe.

6. K&R. Every Dem in CT and US should know about this.
It really calls into question the legitimacy of Lieberman's campaign.

Mr, Baker - Where did you get this e-mail? My suggestion - please pass this on to DNC so they can authenticate and disemminate it.

9. Kicking my own thread for the afternooners
I think it's important for people to know who's backing Joe. Kinda reminds one of Man-Dog Santorum's campaign tactics in PA.

So I'm kickin' it for the afternooners.
