This Is Actually Funny
In a nutbar revenge
kind of way.The party Sen. Joe Lieberman created to mount his independent re-election campaign has been seized by one of his critics, and the secretary of state's office said Wednesday that it won't challenge the takeover.
After the senator's Nov. 7 victory under the Connecticut for Lieberman Party banner, John Orman switched his party affiliation from Democrat to Connecticut for Lieberman and voted himself chairman.
As I commented last year, the liberal bloggers seemed more interested in defeating one Democrat than they were in defeating the Republicans. In an unfortunate twist, they succeeded in the latter and failed in the former.
But I do gotta wonder about Orman's political savvy even though he's a poly sci professor:Orman said he hopes to keep the Connecticut for Lieberman party active and endorse a Senate candidate in 2010.
Uh, you know that Lieberman won't be running for reelection in 2010, right? His next test before the voters is 2012 (assuming he doesn't mount another quixotic campaign for the presidency in 2008).
