Turncoat Joe stoops to a new low
Can someone PLEASE explain why some Democrats stuck with this moron after the 2006 primary?
Lieberman's recent smearing of Obama is really outrageous.
Joe Lieberman: a disgrace to Connecticut.
I guess the maker of this racist T-shirt voted for Clinton in the primary.
Marietta bar owner Mike Norman says the T-shirts he’s peddling, featuring a look-a-like of cartoon chimp Curious George peeling a banana, with “Obama in ‘08? underneath, are not meant to offend.
Norman acknowledged the imagery’s Jim Crow roots but said he sees nothing wrong with depicting a prominent African-American as a monkey. We’re not living in the (19)40’s,” he said. “Look at him . . . the hairline, the ears — he looks just like Curious George.” About a dozen prostestors rallied against the shirts Tuesday afternoon, condemning them as racist and asking Norman, longtime proprietor of Mulligan’s Bar and Grill on Roswell Street, to stop selling them.
Marietta native Pam Lindley, 47, joined the protest after reading about the controversy online.
“I don’t want people to think this is what Marietta is all about,” she added, motioning towards the tavern. “This is what some people think the South is still like. Marietta’s come a long way but I guess it’s still got a little ways to go.”
...but of course, it's crazy to suggest that racism will be a factor in this year's presidential election, right?

White like me
I'm seen some surprising comments from the Clinton campaign during this campaign but Hillary Clinton's recent argument in terms of why she's the most electable candidate turned my stomach and really pissed me off.
Now, it goes with saying that Clinton's remark didn't go along well in the African-American community, even along her most hardened supporters. In fact, it was by far one of the most disgusting statements I've ever heard from the a political family I use to respect during the 90s.
In full damage control mode, the Clinton campaign sent Terry McAuliffe to do the Sunday talk show rounds to do what he does best...spin.
I bring this topic up for a reason. It's apparent to anyone who's looking at this rationally that at this point, this primary needs to end, and the sooner the better. As each super-delegate makes a decision, the closer this nonsense can come to an end and the excuses I hear from the those uncommitted doesnt' nearly pass the smell test.
Joe Courtney and Nancy DiNardo...are you listening?
