Joementum might not get the support from Independents he's hoping for.
A poster on the off-topic sub-forum of a game message board I frequent who is a CT centrist voted for Lamont in the primaries.

Way to twist what I said well out of proportion. Frankly, I *still* don't consider myself a Democrat, despite the change in my registration. No open primaries here in CT, and seriously: F*CK the Republican party. It seems a lifetime ago that I considered myself a Republican. Those ****ers have totally turned their back on me, and thus I return the favor. That leaves the Dems, and in this specific election... look at the poll data: the winner will be a "democrat."

As for Joe's voting record, I'm aware that he was, at least for most of his career, a staunch Democrat. I don't really care about that, since I don't particularly like the Democrats anyway. I decided I wanted him fired, and wanted fresh blood (mmm, blood :vampire: ). The rest follows from there.

Regarding my comment about Lieberman & the Republicans: it's fitting that a man who lost a primary in large part due to his (recent) coziness with an extremely unpopular Republican President will try to hang on to his seat and will get support from the Republicans to do it.

1. Exactly
Seems to me Joe thinks the Independent box is empty and just waiting for him to come and fill it, not understanding that there are Independents (and independents) already there, busy with their own plans and machinations.

3. Yes.
We all know Joementum is a conservative trying to act like a moderate. It looks like the Indies arn't buying his act, either.
