Saturday night with Coltrane and the Duke
Seems like State Central Nancy DiNardo is quite pissed down in DC over her being outed for being at Joe Lieberman's election victory celebration.
Of course, it would also be inappropriate for the head of the State Democratic Party to attend the party celebrating the inauguration of a candidate who defeated the Democratic Party candidate for Senate. But I’ve also heard that Nancy DiNardo was celebrating Ned Lamont’s defeat along with other Lieberman supporters at Lieberman’s inaugural party in DC. If this is true, we just got suckered into another term of being “led” by someone who thinks it’s okay to celebrate the defeat of her own party’s candidate. Nice!Now, this wasn't new news since I heard that she as well as other Democrats such as my favorite State Senator Bill Finch made the trip to DC to kiss Joe's ring. It's just laughable when people like DiNardo, Finch, Jim "I'll crush you" Amann, and our favorite drinking buddy Pat Dillon, get all pissy when they're so-called loyality towards the Democratic Party is EXPOSED.
Ms. DiNardo, what’s in it for you? There must be a reasonable explanation why you continue to support Joe Lieberman, despite your official capacity as chairwoman of the party whose candidates he actively campaigned against.Same ol' Democratic leadership running the show in CT...nothing has changed.
When you watch this video, remember one thing and Ken Krayeske (FREELANCE REPORTER AND FORMER CAMPAIGN MANAGER FOR GREEN PARTY CANDIDATE CLIFF THORNTON).
Sorry for the lack of posts but I'm working on the video from teh DNC winter meeting right now. Head over to My Left Nutmeg as the great Maura is in attendance at the meeting and is providing all the details.
Only serious questions please.
A great, great, great person has passed away.
Syndicated political columnist Molly Ivins died of breast cancer Wednesday evening at her home in Austin. She was 62 years old, and had much, much more to give this world.
She remained cheerful despite Texas politics. She emphasized the more hilarious aspects of both state and national government, and consequently never had to write fiction. She said, "Good thing we’ve still got politics—finest form of free entertainment ever invented."
With silly talk like this coming from Senator Biden, it seems like former Lieberman spokesgoof Marion Steinfels will be out of a job soon.
"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man."
Following up on my post regarding the passing of Emma Faust Tillman, here's Fox 61 report on the former longest living woman in the world.
Finally the lies will be exposed.
God bless Gen. Wes Clark. This ad is being pushed in the six home states of the Republicans on Foreign Relations Committee that voted against the Levin/Biden/Hagel resolution.
I just read that East Hartford's Emma Faust Tillman pass away at the age of 114. The daughter of slaves, I remember watching CNN when they reported that Tillman was just named the oldest living person in the world last week. In fact, until just recently, Tillman walked on her own and had a pretty independent life.
Who didn't see this one coming...
I swear I just heard some "Independent Democrat" on Fox News Sunday say that he'd consider voting for a Republican presidential candidate in 2008 because the single issue of Iraq and "War on Terror" was just that important to him that it would override everything else.
[...]"I'm open to supporting a Democrat, Republican, or even an Independent if there's a strong one," the U.S. Senator from Connecticut told "Fox News Sunday."
"You make a decision based on a whole range of issues. But obviously, the positions that some candidates have taken in Iraq troubles me. Obviously, I will be looking at what positions they take in the larger war against Islamist terrorism."
Update 2: Yes, the Last Honest Man's opinion has changed drastically since just this past summer. From the July debate:LIEBERMAN: That's why I say [Lamont] is running a single issue campaign. Every campaign, as President Clinton reminded us, is about the future. And what I'm saying to the people of Connecticut, I can do more for you and your families to get something done to make health care affordable, to get universal health insurance, to make America energy independent, to save your jobs and create new ones. That's what the Democratic Party is all about.
He is a single issue candidate who is applying a litmus test to me. It's not good enough to be 90 percent voting with my colleagues in the Senate Democratic Caucus. He wants 100 percent. And when a party does that, it's the beginning of the defeat of that party.
And, the kicker:I want Democrats to be back in the majority in Washington and elect a Democratic president in 2008. This man and his supporters will frustrate and defeat our hopes of doing that.
