Lieberman Falls Short on Recruits
Sen. Joseph Liebermans (D-CT) Tour for Tomorrow continues to be punctuated with todays struggles to save his troubled campaign. In the aftermath of a Quinnipiac poll this morning showing the three term Democrat far behind behind challenger Ned Lamont in Tuesdays primary, Lieberman must decide how or if to salvage his get-out-the-vote operation.

Word is leaking out of the campaign that efforts to hire and organize several thousand itinerant campaign workers have fallen far short of expectations and necessity. Lieberman and his battered brain trust will now have to decide whether to continue investing funds in that effort or save money for November. These primary troubles are a preview of what he can expect in his new life as an independent should he lose on Tuesday. Much of his weak campaign organization will dutifully head to the triumphant Democratic nominee or simply sit out the race.

Party professionals are appalled at the parlous state of Liebermans campaign organization. And thats something it takes more than a few weeks to build. The invoice for neglecting Connecticut Democrats for the past six years is now due. Its a ruinous sum for George Bushs favorite Senate Democrat.

...with a grain of salt, of course, because it isn't over until it's over.

4. If LIEberman is PAYING for "Volunteers"...
this is a great opportunity to take some of Joe's money, provided you do a really shitty job.

Here's the Kiss Float in action. Hope Joe appreciates all the work this guy is doing.



Here's a link with video of the Kiss Float getting pulled over by The Man.

Another from You Tube.
