The Lieberman-Lamont Saga Continues
Matt Stoller covers the nefarious doings
of Lieberman supporters.There were about 15 Ned supporters outside, holding signs and milling about. There were also some reporters, a photographer, and a bunch of journalists. Ned arrived at 5:05, and spent about 10 or 15 minutes outside before heading in to give a speech and eat a cheeseburger. He goes inside, and all of sudden the field organizer who was behind Ned heard a lot of screaming directed at Ned.
There were only four booths and six stools in the whole place, and they were basically all occupied. When Ned went in, all of the supporters ripped off their 'civilian clothes' and revealed their Lieberman T-Shirts.
The horror, the horror!
Meanwhile, it turns out that not only does Lamont own stock in Halliburton
, but also Wal-Mart
. Note: Lieberman apparently owns stock in a mutual fund which has Halliburton holdings as well.
Meanwhile, Billmon points out that Lamont is supportive of Israel
, which means he's going against the nutbar base of the party.
