The Story Joe Lieberman doesn't want you to read

Read the story that has Joe Lieberman's campaign is freaking out about.

From Ned Lamont's press release:
What really happened during the primary?

I mean the behind-the-scenes stuff not fit for the easily digested, all-too-often repeated, lazy narrative of an anti-war candidate fueled by bloggers vs. a career politician and steadfast Bush supporter taking a principled position on Iraq.

GQ Magazine followed each campaign prior to the primary and filed a must-read report for any and everybody following the race or voting this November. It's devastatingly detailed and accurate, shredding the mythology behind the "last honest politician."

That's why Joe Lieberman doesn’t want you to read it.

That's why his campaign went on the radio and sent out a press release attacking the author...within hours of its release.

[...]

The good, the bad, and the ugly - the article covers it all.

It talks about how Ned Lamont, an unlikely vessel for change, morphed from neophyte politician early in the campaign, climaxing the week of the primary during a transformative speech at a New Haven black church.

It compares and contrasts our genuinely enthusiastic rallies with Joe Lieberman's scripted, made for TV events.

It talks about the dirty campaign tactics employed by Senator Lieberman, including paid thugs sent to our events in order to pick fights with staff...and Ned.

And that's just the beginning.

You gotta read the article. And we need you to forward it to your friends when you are done.
As you know, I covered the primary as well as most of the bloggers you've come to know over the last year and I think I can speak for all of them when I say that this story is 100 percent accurate. Please read it and forward it to your friends.
