So Long, MoFo Joe
Three-term Senator Joe Lieberman was defeated yesterday in his bid for a fourth run as a Senator representing Connecticut.
Political newcomer Ned Lamont, an anti-war candidate, won by a slim majority (52 percent).
Lieberman plans to run as an Independent.
I don't know why he doesn't just jump ship and run as a Republican. After all, he's consistently been an apologist for Bush's unwinnable war, plus he's cozied up to him in way too many photo ops.
This primary election bodes well for the November elections.
There's blood in the water and people finally are getting to voice their contempt for the status quo, and those who've helped enable this abysmal regime to run rampant over the Constitution and the wishes of the taxpayers.
In another race, Congress Rep. Cynthia Crazy Eyes McKinney lost her primary in Georgia.
She may be remembered as the wild eyed cop slapper who went ballistic when a Capitol police officer failed to recognize her as a member of Congress and tried to deny her access to a House office building.
Oh, well. That suits me fine.
We don't need any zany, loose cannons like McKinney in the Democratic party right now. She only reinforces the wilder side of the inclusionary party, and right now we need some credible reps who can convince mainstream voters they have the competence and composure to dig us out of the hole the GOP has buried us in.
Giving the boot to Joe Lieberman was the first bomb to indirectly hit the GOP, and is a harbinger of good news for the coming general elections.
They've been put on notice: the GOP and their sniveling Democratic sympathizers have to go.
