Lieberman to Dems: Shut the fu*k up!

Oh, the guys at Crooks and Liars found a gem of a video which explains why Joe Lieberman is George Bush's favorite Democrat.

Remember these words from Oedipus Lieberman:
It is time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge that he will be Commander-in-Chief for three more critical years, and that in matters of war, we undermine Presidential credibility at our nation's peril.

You read the words, NOW watch the video.
This is Lieberman at his anti-Democrat best and exactly why he's in the fight of his life against a true Democrat.

You see Joe, over the last 6+ years, you have gone out of your way to not only undermine the Democratic Party, but also turn a blind eye to the people you were suppose to represent here in Connecticut (just ask the DTC chairman in Southbury).
Trust me, this DTC chairman expressed the frustration many have with Lieberman in Connecticut and Joe would know this if he ever listened to the people he was suppose to represent.

Whether it's was through your numerous shameless appearances on Sean Hannity's radio show (monthly might I add), or anytime someone put a camera in front of your face, you've shown through your actions not only your disdain for the principles of the Democratic Party, but your acceptances of the neo-conservative agenda. You have done nothing but repeatedly undermine the Democratic Party and laughing it up with the likes of William Buckley and Rush Limbaugh.

Is this the type of Democrat you want representing you in Washington?

Joe is now running around the state looking sad and desperate because he see the writing on the wall. He won't hold any public events (nor publicize them) because he's wants (and needs) to control who he talks to (most of whom do not represent the viewpoint of a majority of the people in the state). Now, he's crying like a baby, accusing anyone who challenges him in public of being a Lamont plant.

Is this the type of Democrat you want representing you in Washington?

Now, Lieberman's approval numbers are falling like a brick because Democrats have had enough of him and his closeness to Bush and the conservative agenda. Since people are learning more about Ned Lamont and realizing that he's the real deal, you, in your outright arrogance, choose to ignore the results of the primary (since there is a very good chance it won't go in your favor), and petition to be an independent on the November ballot.

Some Democrat indeed.

Joe, it's just sad to watch you unhinge and your entire campaign fall apart like this. Even those who "support" you publicly, sing a different tune in private and I can't wait for those Democrats that you have in a political chokehold to be finally free of you and proudly embrace Lamont on August 9th.

Remember this one thing Joe, the statements you made in this videoclip was the straw that broke the camel's back. You have no one but yourself to blame.

I, for one, don't want someone like you representing the people of Connecticut in Washington.
