Another staged Lieberman photo-op caught

People-powered media strikes again.
Joe Lieberman would like you think he has any amount of grassroots support, but the whole thing is a mirage … a carefully crafted mirage for the newspaper reporters, their photogs and any television camera within eyeshot.

From the ice-cream cone bought for Marion Steinfels’ little brother, to the bus driver, to elated Liberkidz sulking in the sun and erupting in spontaneous applause as their hero appears.

Today, Senator Lieberman went door knocking. Our tracker says he hit two doors total for the press. Both people answering had Joe Lieberman t-shirts on. What a joke
Typical Lieberman.

You would think Joe would have learned his lesson from the summer when we documented every staged event he pulled for the media (I'm praying Joe does another bus tour).

I guess it's true what they say about old dogs...
