Lieberman throws Chris Murphy under the bus
Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman and his main challenger, Ned Lamont, briskly shook hands Sunday at a Veterans Day parade made more solemn by the mounting U.S. death toll in Iraq.Joe Lieberman on the campaign trail with Nancy Johnson. I'm sure Chris Murphy is happy about that.
Lieberman, a petitioning candidate since losing the Democratic nomination to Lamont, marched in the Hartford parade Sunday with U.S. Rep. Nancy L. Johnson, R-5th District, and a conservative radio host, Brad Davis.
It's simple, Lieberman has been actively campaigning with Nancy Johnson and Chris Shays from day one. Joe knows that he needs the Republicqan vote to win the election so he's on the campaign trail placing the Democrat victory in Connecticut (as well as the Democratic control of Congress) in jeopardy.
Joe Lieberman only cares about Joe Lieberman. People like Johnson and Shays are more than happy to ride Lieberman's coattails since they're both locked in tight races and need a big Republican turnout on election day.
Still think Lieberman's a Democrat?
