Lamont rips into Lieberman
Democratic Senate nominee Ned Lamont, the anti-war candidate who toppled Sen. Joe Lieberman in the Connecticut primary, says he was surprised by Lieberman and Vice President Dick Cheney's claims that his victory could embolden terrorists.Damn right Ned. Not only was it offensive, it goes to show just how desperate and pathetic Lieberman has become. I mean, is this truly the way Joe wants to end his political career...sounding like an unhinged sore loser?
"My God, here we have a terrorist threat against hearth and home and the very first thing that comes out of their mind is how can we turn this to partisan advantage. I find that offensive," Lamont said in an interview Sunday with The Associated Press.
Cheney suggested Wednesday that Lamont's victory might encourage "the al-Qaida types" who want to "break the will of the American people in terms of our ability to stay in the fight and complete the task."
Lamont said Lieberman's swipe at his candidacy "sounded an awful lot" like Cheney.
"It surprised me," he said. "It seemed almost orchestrated. It's sort of demeaning to the people of Connecticut. ... I thought the senator and the vice president were both wrong to use that attack (strategy) on the voters of Connecticut."
Well, if Joe wants to spit in the face of those who oppose his friend President Bush and his management of the Iraq War, I think it's time to show Joe Lieberman that the Democratic Party will not tolerate that type of language from a sore loser. If you're as upset as I, check back tomorrow and see what you can do to send a loud message to Mr Indy.
Hey Joe, we're ready for round two...you sure you have the stomach for it? It's going to be a brutal three months for you...
