The Adults Step In
A bunch of Senate Democrats
announced their support for Joe Lieberman today, and as you can imagine, the Netkooks are up in arms.Sens. Joe Biden of Delaware, Barbara Boxer of California and Ken Salazar of Colorado plan to campaign in Connecticut for Lieberman between now and the Aug. 8 primary. Their goal is to reassure the party faithful of the three-term senator's loyalty to Democratic causes, including women's issues, labor and the environment.Kos
:Biden is just giving people more reasons to laugh away his presidential ambitions. Boxer's the only disappointment in this lot, but she already demonstrated at YearlyKos how utterly out of touch she was on this issue. Now we know it wasn't a fluke. Too bad.David Sirota
:Exactly - so I say, bring ‘em on. Let as many incumbent U.S. Senators from Washington as Lieberman wants go up to Connecticut - it will only reiterate to voters what this race is really all about: a contest between the Washington Establishment and the Rest of Us.
As I've said many times before, the liberal blogs seem to have a zest for beating up on insufficiently liberal Democrats, while their stated desire to beat the Republicans seems more pro forma.
