Turncoat Lieberman

Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) is showing his true colors. Not because of his servile embrace, literally, of President Bush, and his uncritical support of Bush's costly Iraq war policy, but because if he doesn't get his way.... win the upcoming Connecticut Democratic primary.... he is going to take his political ball elsewhere.

He'll run as an Independent.

This would make the election for the Connecticut senate seat a three-way race in November and almost assures the Republican candidate a win.

At a time when the GOP monopoly of the executive and legislative branches of government are squeezing the life out of our "checks and balances" safeguards, and allowing Bush to bulldoze his destructive agenda into law, Lieberman puts his ego, his personal pique, before the good of his party and the country.

Hillary was right to tell Lieberman, if you run as an Independent, don't count on me. Good for her.

Now, Democratic voters of Connecticut, soundly defeat Lieberman in the primary, show him his threat doesn't work. After all, if he runs and wins you just have a Republican-wanna-be Senator anyway.
