Say it ain't so Joe, you're showing up the Labor Day parade afterall

Remember this fine quote from Newtown First Selectman Herb Rosenthal about Joe Lieberman attendance record at the Labor Day parade.
"I let him know that he would not be welcome to march with me," Rosenthal said. "He wouldn't be coming because he is a U.S. Senator. He'd be coming because he's a candidate."

Rosenthal said Lieberman has been invited to march every year for the last nine years and only came one time over those years and that was before 2000.

Well, it's funny how a tough election can bring Joe Lieberman back to town huh?For this first time in over six years (or should I say the first time this millennium), fifth-party candidate Joe Lieberman decides to pay Newtown a visit and march in the Labor Day parade (as a party of one of course).
