DANGERStein watch: Liebergoon throws Obama and anti-war liberals under the bus


Why is this lying hack on MSNBC?!?

Lieberman's spokegoon DANGERStein follows Tucker Carlson's lead and throws Barak Obama under the bus over his Iraq proposal while throwing a jab as "liberal" bloggers and propping up his idol, "Holy Joe" Lieberman.

WARNING: Grab your barf bag before watching.


...this is the same jackass who defended Lieberman's use of race baiting flyers against Ned Lamont (which were ONLY distributed among African-American neighborhoods) during the priamry.
(tip to the mighty TParty)





UPDATE:Digby throws a couple more logs on the fire.

DON'T INTERRUPT ME, DON'T INTERRUPT ME!


Rep. Chris Shays is a real class act.

Here's the pride and joy of the 4th District repeatedly admonishing Katy Helvenston-Wettengel (who was only trying to answer Shays questions within his endless and shameless rant).

Who is Katy Helvenston-Wettengel you ask? Well, she just happens to be one of the relatives of the four American contractors who providing private security in Iraq that were ambushed by a mob and their bodies dragged through the streets of Fallujah. Helvenston-Wettengel, and three other relatives of the victims, testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform about the outrageous conditions the contractors were forced to deal with while in Iraq (i.e., lack of body armour, lack of amour ed cars, no maps, etc).



After these individuals fought back tears testifying about the recounting how the contractors, were sent out into the meat grinder called Iraq without the protective equipment they were promised, the Republicans wasted no time and doing what they do best...attack the messenger. Shays grilling and belittling of Helvenston-Wettengel was so offensive that Rep. Henry Waxman apparently had enough of the 4th District Congressman and pulled the plug on him.

Watch and puke.

Updates

Sorry for the lack of posts but I've been pretty busy lately.

I haven't updated this site in some time and since I just finished re-designing my other blog, I decided to spend a couple of days and fix some of the problems on this site.

Don't worry, I'll be back up to full speed soon...

Gov Rowland-Rell caught red-handed AGAIN

Oh, it was only a matter of time till something like this was brought to the surface for all to see. Seems like the the Jodi Rell/Lisa Moody connection was up to no good again.
State auditors and the attorney general Tuesday received a request to look into whether Gov. M. Jodi Rell's office improperly used state resources last year to obtain addresses for use by Rell's campaign in soliciting financial contributions by mail.

An investigation appeared imminent after Democratic State Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo faxed a letter to State Auditors Robert G. Jaekle and Kevin P. Johnson, asking that they "investigate the use of state employees' time and state resources for the sole purpose of raising campaign funds for Gov. Rell's political campaign."

DiNardo based Tuesday's letter on what she said were troubling disclosures in Sunday's Courant by columnist Kevin Rennie. Even though DiNardo released a copy of her letter to The Courant, Jaekle said he could not confirm that the auditors had received it because of restrictions in the state's "whistleblower's law," under which the auditors and attorney general investigate allegations of waste, fraud and abuse in state government.

[...]

Rennie wrote in his column Sunday that last August, a lawyer in Rell's office, Philip L. Dukes, asked the state's Commission on Culture and Tourism for the lists it maintains for mailing announcements to people in arts and tourism groups. After the agency sent Dukes the lists, Dukes turned them over to Rell's chief of staff, M. Lisa Moody, and not long after that, people on the lists received letters from the Rell campaign soliciting contributions up to $2,500, Rennie wrote.

[...]

Rell and Moody, Republicans, spent much of 2006 in a scandal over a Dec. 7, 2005, Rell fund-raising event at the Marco Polo Restaurant in East Hartford - a scandal that led to months of investigation as well as $500 fines for 16 top Rell-administration appointees who obeyed Moody's instructions to hand out fundraiser invitations to subordinates. Rell suspended Moody for two weeks, saying she insisted that her staff maintain high ethical standards.


You can thank Kevin Rennie for uncovering this nonsense. I'm sure this isn't the last time we'll hear Lisa "shake the money tree" Moody and Jodi Rowland-Rell accused of dirty tricks.

Lieberman (D/I-CT) accuses supporters of anti-escalation resolution of not supporting the troops

This is the so-called Democrat House Speaker James Amann supports.
Yesterday on the Senate floor, Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and John Warner (R-VA) had a testy exchange over their Iraq resolutions, during which Lieberman claimed that the difference between his pro-escalation resolution and Warner's anti-escalation resolution is that "ours is a statement of support to our troops."

Warner responded, "I forcefully argue that ours is in support of the troops, and there is no suggestion that one is less patriotic than the other." But Lieberman insisted, "One is not less patriotic than the other, but actions have consequences, as I said during my remarks. For the Senate to take this unprecedented action on a nonbinding resolution to disavow, disapprove a mission that our troops are being asked to carry out right now cannot help their morale."

Class act.

Is this the type of politician that Democrats such as Speaker Amann, Pat "I'll have another" Dillion, and Bill Finch should rally around? While we're at it, I'm still wondering if the head of State Central Nancy DiNardo will ever get around to answering Maura's quesiton regarding her attendance at Joe Lieberman's victory celebration in D.C.
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!
I guess she already gave her answer to the Courant.
As for his future place in the state party, Nancy DiNardo sounds like she’s keeping every door and window open [From the Courant]:
Reached by phone at the Democratic National Committee meeting in Washington, DiNardo said she and Lieberman have yet to discuss his place in the party.
"It has been awkward," DiNardo said of the three months since the election. "I think there have been bruised feelings on both sides."

Umm... how about slamming the door in his face? That's what I usually do with people who spit in my face and refuse to leave my house.

DiNardo apparently feels differently, and feels sorry for Joe's "brusied feelings."
Shame on any Democratic official that supported Lieberman after the primary (both publically and privately) and shame on any Democrat who's too afraid to take a stance against Lieberman's rhetoric.
