Hey, Joe

The rabid left has been pushing very hard to defeat Joe Lieberman with an anti-war candidate. Joe has faithfully served the Democrat party and his constituents for 18 years, yet he is now considered an outcast because he does not pander to the moonbats.

I really hope that Joe pulls if off today. If he does, it is one major bitch-slap to the lunatic fringe left. If he doesn't, then I think it speaks volumes about the disintegration of a party that once stood for something besides hating America.

Let's hope two things happen today: Cynthia McKinney goes down in flames in her runoff and Joe prevails. That alone will convince me that the Democrats haven't completely lost their way.

Joe lost the primary, not becuase of bloggers or any far left attack machine, but becuase while he does vote democratic 90 percent of the time, the 10 percent of his pro administration votes are Always when his democratic vote would have stopped a republican measure or appointment, I dont think i said that very well, but put simply, he votes republican when it counts, and democrat when it doesnt. That is completely against the concept of opposing parties, and others like him, (dem Jim black here in NC) are interested solely in retaining power, and not voting to his constituents best interest. Leiberman has been denied his encumbancy, and what does he do with the clear wishes of his state's Democratic voters? He says screw em, and will run independant. That is exactly why he lost, CT voters know he doesnt listen to them, and they showed him what they think of that.

This has nothing to do with the disintegration of any party, though I'd be happy to dissolve both, this has to do with the same basic reason The American colonies decided to throw off the bonds of england, taxation without representation. If the voters cant get their views into government, they are going to get new representation.

This has nothing to do with any lunatic fringe, and everything to do with the basic tenants of our democratic republic.

So far as Mckinney Goes, she's always been portrayed as a crazy black woman by the media, but I doubt if that were true she'd have been elected 6 times before this. You are in georgia though arent you? maybe you could give us some direct insight into why she should go, other than her being harrassed by dc cops and reacting to it. Personally, I think she should go, all incumbents need to go, I just dont know any real reasons for this one, care to enlighten me?

How about because she doesnt show up to vote on behalf of her constituents. She didnt even show up to vote on the voting rights act.

that's exactly why I asked, locals always know more than us outsiders. Still as I said, All incumbents need to go, regardless of party or position. our only hope for retaining democracy is to get those in power out and replace them with new folks.

I'll agree with you there, Joe. We would be much better off to toss every single incumbent into the street and start over with strict term limits.

Hey, that was refreshing, agreeing with Joe.

be careful that's the first step down a slippery slope.
