Lamont Wins, Lieberman Vows To Be Spoiler
Since Joe Lieberman has once again put his own career over the good of both his party and his country, Kos has the following excellent directives:
Here's what we all need to do the next few days: 1. Push Harry Reid to strip Lieberman of all committee assignments. 2. Let people know what a sore loser Lieberman is. 3. Get all Democrats -- including Bill Clinton -- to publicly back Ned Lamont. 4. Get the Democratic interest groups who backed Lieberman to switch allegiances in the general. The DSCC and the DCCC will have to deal with the fact that this race will continue to suck oxygen from great pickup opportunities. And I won't apologize for that, because as a proud Democrat, I will help in whatever way I can the Democratic nominee from the Great State of Connecticut. The Republicans rejoiced at Lieberman's decision to stay in. They couldn't be happier. And let's not talk about the lobbyists! They're besides themselves! Joe Lieberman is not an independent Democrat. He needs to be stripped of his committee assignments and have those handed to real Democrats. And then we need to buckle down and finish the job we started. This was never going to be easy. it still is not. But in the end, we will prevail.
In the meantime, if you have written a particularly good one, spam a link.
