Powerful anti-Lieberman editorial in CT newspaper today
Calls him "GOP Joe" and says the only way you can be for the Constitution and against a police state is to be a Democrat...

GOP Joe
10/12/2006

On Monday of this week Sen. Joe Lieberman appeared at a well-attended luncheon at La Renaissance restaurant in East Windsor, hosted by the radio host Brad Davis.

It was a remarkable performance for two reasons. First, it showed, again, that Lieberman is possessed of great political skills. During the primary campaign, the senator seemed to have lost those skills. But now he has been freed to be who he really is. He's comfortable and effective again. Second, the person Lieberman really is, is a Bush Republican.
<snip>

The point is, if you oppose a police state, if you want to hang on to the Constitution and free speech - even in time of war and even when you want to protect your child's innocence - you have to, today, be a Democrat.

<snip>

Connecticut Republicans know what's going on in this election. Their nominal candidate, Alan Schlesinger, has between 3 and 5 percent in the polls. The Republican national chairman has declined to endorse him and Gov. Jodi Rell said he should withdraw from the contest. Republicans know that Joe is their horse in this race.

Democrats who think Lieberman is still one of them need to wake up and smell the coffee.

2. I hope so, too
Connecticut is not called "The Land of Steady Habits" for nothing, though. People of both parties are so used to voting for Lieberman that it is sometimes hard for them to change.

4. Terrific article...
I wish the Dems that support Lieberman would wake up but I'm not sure if they can since in essence they think they are Dems but are voting for Bush anyway with a vote for Holy Joe.

5. One of the great things about this article
is that it undermines Lieberman's use of the word "partisan" as some kind of slur. I'm partisan, and I'm proud to be partisan. I'm proud to be part of a group of people working together to stand up for the common good, and to stand up against the excesses of the Bush administration.

7. Lieberman seems to only criticize Democrats
How often has he criticized Frist, Warner, McCain, etc?

6. I hope they do wake up, yet another poll today gives Lieberman
a double digit lead.
