Lets Make Change.

It took him long enough…

There has been speculation that Lieberman may be offered the Republican endorcement now that Allen Schlesinger is being pressured to drop out of the race due to his recent gambling scandle. When Lieberman’s campaign was contacted to see if he would accept the endorsement and run on a Republican line he took a day to think it over but today released this statement:

“Joe Lieberman will never run as a Republican. Never.”

There you go, pretty clear.  But why did he take a day to give what should have been an obvious answer.  I dont blame him for considering it, he is practicly a republican as it is, he would probubly feel quite at home going all the way.  But I guess he would perfer running in the Lieberman for CT party.

Didn’t one of the 25 founders of Lieberman for CT give some $15,000 to the RNC?

Cleveland A. Christophe, one of the 25 founders of the new right wing party, Connecticut For Lieberman, is pretty broadminded in his political contributions.

In addtion to Dem candidates, he’s given to Chris Shays, Rick Lazio (of NY), William Weld’s Senatorial campaign and a whopping $15,000 to the Republican National Committee.

Great!

CT on Comedy Central

You know you’ve hit the big time when you’re mentioned in the headlines section of the Daily Show one night and the bumper of the Colbert Report the next! The quote of the day went to Stephen Colbert who dedicated his “The Word” to the CT Senate primary against Joe Lieberman and Ned Lamont. When discussing the now infamous kiss George Bush bestowed on Lieberman after the State of the Union address he said:

You know, President Bush has such soft hands, I can only imagine what his lips are like. Evidently low approval ratings can be contracted through saliva because Lieberman could now actually lose the democratic primary.

Dean: “I encourage voters to make decisions, and who they choose is who we support”

It’s nice to see some real party leadership coming from the DNC in Washington.  I have to admit I have had my doubts about post-election Dean and his wishy washy leadership but yesterday on CNN he regained my trust by simply stating the obvious:

“The nice thing about our party is we don’t dictate from the top down. We actually let voters make decisions, and I think that’s a very healthy thing to do. I encourage voters to make decisions, and who they choose is who we support.”

It really is as simple as that.  If the party chooses a candidate the party leadership cannot ignore their will and support another candidate.  I am personally sick of Democrats like Chuck Schumer who dodge the question every time its asked.  Its a simple question folks!

Will you support the winner of the Democratic primary?

Lamont Debate part III

Its a bad time to be out of state because I am missing out on all the post-debate excitment in the press. I am able to pick up on the national and online coverage from Montreal but as soon as I get home I’ll be all over it! From what I am reading the press is embracing Lamont in a big way. LamontBlog is a good resource for all the positive national feedback on the debate.

Whats the next step? Write a letter to your local newspaper supporting Ned as the winner of the debate and the next Senator from the state of CT. This campaign would be nothing without us and it cannot survive if we dont keep up the good work. We are the foundation Ned uses to reach out to the masses. Keep the faith.

Lamont: The Clear Victor

Being from CT, I have been on a Ned Lamont high this entier week leading up to today’s debate.  I have watched this race grow from a silly dream of ct bloggers to one of, if no the, highest profile senatorial race in the country.  So high profile in fact that it is consistantly mentioned in Sunday morning talk shows and cable news punditry.

The debate was telivised not to the millions in the state of CT but to the tens of millions watching MSNBC, NBC 30 and C-Span tonight at 7 EST.  All I can say is wow!  What a showdown.  Lieberman came out swinging punches of negativity and insecurtiy from the getgo but Ned stayed calm and focused.  Lieberman came off like a bully, not a senior statesman.  He interupted Ned every chance he got and made constant attacks on Ned’s wealth and character rather than the issues.  It wasn’t an easy battle, but Ned came out the victor.  And I’m not the only one who thinks so either.

Lamont v Lieberman!

I`m in Canada on holiday but I had to park my butt in front of a computer to listen to the Lieberman v Lamont debate which was picked up nationaly by MSNBC and C-Span.  It`s half way through and Lamont is absolutly kicking his ass!  I have never heard anything like it!  After a vice presidential race and a presidential race one would think Joe Lieberman would have it down by now.  Yikes!
