From the heated discussion engendered by the post Joe Lieberman: Foe of Third-Party Politics:
Look you idjits it is about the COUNTRY not the party. The last time I looked, elected types were supposed to represent ALL the people not just the ones in their party. It is my hope Joe wipes the floor with Lamont.
Clearly Lieberman is a traitor to his party who cares nothing about the will of the voters. Lamont energized the electorate in a way Lieberman could not. There was over 50% turnout in Connecticut. That happened because Lamont's personality and positions got asses in the voting booth. That, my friends, is what electoral politics is about.
