Lieberman Concedes Narrow Defeat in CT Primary

Filed under: Current Events,Politics — Robert @ 12:22 am

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.

  1. I’ve got to agree. It is absolutely beyond me why so many Republicans fell all over themselves to support this guy. I can understand the temptation to oppose anything the Kos/MoveOn axis might do, but when Democrats are spending so much time, energy and money, trying to unseat one of their own in a year when control of Congress might actually be up for grabs, Republicans should probably just shut up and stay out of the way.

  3. Any bets on how the Democratic vote will split in Connecticut in November? Going by the 2000 party numbers as found on this Green Party document (You can stop scoffing now.), a 65/35 split puts this race up for grabs. Something to keep an eye out for when the polling starts in earnest, I would think.

  4. Replacing Rummy after Nov 2006 is not out of the realm of possibility.
