Sidney Blumenthal clearly gets the message and explains why Lieberman's gameplan is bad news for all Democrats.
Lieberman can only win by securing almost all the Republican votes. His campaign must pull Republican votes to the polls, courtesy of the national GOP on which his ambition has become dependent. That can have a drastically negative effect on the Democratic campaigns in the three Connecticut congressional districts where Republican representatives are at risk. Those three seats comprise 1/5 of the total number of 15 that Democrats need to gain the House. Out of necessity Lieberman has become an active obstacle to Democratic victory and one of the key bulwarks for protecting Bush's one-party rule essential for remaining unaccountable for the rest of his presidency. For Bush, that is the importance of Lieberman.Bingo, give that man a prize.
You see, the only thing Joe Lieberman cares about is...Joe Lieberman.
Screw Chris Murphy.
Screw Diane Farrell.
Screw Joe Courtney.
Screw John DeStefano.
Screw the Democratic Party.
