No access, no respect

I really have no respect for the Lieberman campaign and the way they treat people who disagree with their man. You see, since the beginning of his campaign, Joe Lieberman has gone out of his way from having public events (unless they're stages dinner stops in which the press is the only people notified), running away from anyone who wants to ask him a critical question, and calling bloggers "protestors" and threatening them with the police.

Yesterday was just more of the same bullshit from team Joementum but this time they picked on the wrong people.

Spazeboy and Jane Hamsher of Firedoglake talk about their experience as they were denied entrance into the big Clinton event in Waterbury.

I wasn't able to make it to the Brass City to see Bubba do his thing but I caught up with Spazeboy and Jane at a Lamont event later in the evening where they gave me the details of their encounter with the Lieberyouth police. Disgusting is the only word that comes to mind when I think about the Lieberman staff as they are by far some of the rudest and mean-spirited group of "out-of-state" people I've ever met in my year and a half of covering Connecticut politics. I won't go into any great details about what happened since Spazeboy details everything that happened to him and Jane on his site.

Please go to Spazeboy's site and tell him thank you for everything he's doing. Just thinking that I was the person who got him into the whole videoblogging thing brings a tear to my eye (oh, where's my tissue). He's come a long way from that faithful day and his blog reflects that.

Poor Spazeboy, you should have saw this guy looking all so sad and depressed...until a smile from Miss Connecticut Heidi Voight brightened up his day.

UPDATE: Spazeboy will be on the WTIC today at 5:40 talking about his experience with the Lieberyouth police.
