Lieberman booed in Bridgeport

You know times are bad when a Senator Lieberman gets booed while the mayor (an admitted cocaine user) receives a warm reception.
Midway through the Barnum Festival's Great Street Parade Sunday, Mayor John M. Fabrizi broke free from a steady stream of outstretched handshakes.

"Hey, I'm going to get blamed for holding up the parade," Fabrizi apologized, pressing forward.

Applause, broken only by sporadic gaps in the 1-mile parade route, along with shouts of "Yea, John," made the mayor's day.


Also walking at Democrat Fabrizi's side was U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn.


The only negative shouts seemed directed at Lieberman, who is facing a primary challenge from Ned Lamont of Greenwich.

"Hey, look at that, a Democrat walking with a Republican," came one shout to Lieberman.

"How's the president," shouted another parade watcher, giving Lieberman a thumbs-down sign.
Oh my.
