Spazeboy and Lieberman: round two
I'm a big fan of Spazeboy. This guy knows no fear and is very dangerous with a video camera. I call him Joe Lieberman's nightmare for good reason as he is relentless in going after George Bush's favorite Democrat whenever he gets a chance.
(Okay, I actually respect him because he has a Smashing Pumpkins sticker on his car but that's besides the point...)
Spazeboy was in New Britain recently as he heard about Joe coming to town for one of his famous bull shit "diner stops." Joe was also suppose to attend the New Britain DTC meeting later that night and Spazeboy was armed and ready for him. Unfortunately, Joe never arrived but Spazeboy breaks down what happened at the meeting after a Lieberman volenteer spoke on Joe's behalf.
Trust me, it's priceless.
Joe Lieberman was rumored to be in New Britain for one of his infamous publicity stunts, but important business apparently kept him in Washington. That’s too bad, because he was also going to speak to the New Britain DTC. I can’t blame him for chickening out, New Britain did give Lamont the highest number of votes at the convention: 24. Fortunately, one of his staff members (possibly one who knew or recognized me?) was there and spoke briefly. Due to general lack of preparedness, I did not have any audio or video recording equipment going at the time, something for which I could almost never forgive myself. Then again, I didn't blow an opportunity as bad as my friend CTBob did…so I’ll consider myself forgiven. Here's what the kid basically said:Joe's goon pisses off everyone at the meeting so much so that the DTC turned around and took a vote of support for Ned Lamont's candidacy. Too funny.
Damn right, kiddo. Joe's going to have a hell of a time in New Britain as long as Spazeboy's in town.
- Lieberman just opened an office in New Britain (He also recited the address, which I thought would be on Joe's website…he probably doesn’t have the bandwidth for a list of local offices).
- Lieberman looks forward to running on his record (Obviously why Lieberman has already put out two negative ads attacking Lamont. One that he wasted a chunk of change on for TV airtime, and one that he put on his website so everybody in the world could see how shitty it was)
- Lieberman looks forward to earning every vote in New Britain, even changing a few (from Lamont, I presume). Seeming to acknowledge the fact that he was in New Britain, this youngster added five words that I will never forget: "That’s probably not gonna happen"
After the Lieberman staffer spoke, the committee delved into topics not nearly interesting enough for me to blog about with two notable exceptions:
- Peter Tercyak, State Representative from the 26th House District moved that another vote be taken on the sense of the meeting in support of Ned Lamont’s bid for the Senate. The motion was seconded by Phil Sherwood and the sense of the meeting was to support Ned Lamont. Again, this was NOT an endorsement, and I heard at least one “nay” but I believe it was from someone (probably a Lieberman supporter) who thought it was best to remain neutral.
UPDATE: Seems like other people heard about Spazeboy's coverage of the meeting. I'm telling you, this kid is dangerous...
