Lieberman didn’t quite pull it off in the Connecticut primary. He’ll sweep the general, of course.
As a good Republican, this is the most outstanding news possible. The netroots’ power has been shown to be relatively weak – but strong enough to prevent a mainstream figure from being viable in the Democratic party, which will spiral further and further left, losing power with each successive orbit. Plus, we’ll end up picking up Lieberman as a RINO – he’ll probably be SecDef or SecState in whichever Republican administration picks up the pieces in 2008. And the sweetest nectar of all is, most lefties probably think this is a victory.
Life is good.
