Senator Joe Liebermam who just lost the Connecticut Democratic Party primary has registered to run for a fourth term as an 'independant Democrat'. Senator Lieberman was, it seems, too moderate and too non partizan for the new far left Democratic Party. It seems that, nowdays, if you prefer to run for office as a Democrat you have to toe the far left line and you have to agree to denounce and fight everything the Republicans put forth. it is Ok to lie, it is OK to cheat but do not you dare agree with anything a Republican
says or does.

Let the resounding defeat of Senator Joe Lieberman send a cold shiver down the spine of every Democrat who supported the invasion of Iraq and who continues to support, in any manner, this senseless, immoral, unwinnable war. Make no mistake about it: We, the majority of Americans, want this war ended -- and we will actively work to defeat each and every among you who doesn't support an immediate end to this war.
Arianna Huffington wrote:
What Lieberman is doing is an act of betrayal and ought to be treated as such. Democratic donors, as Rick Jacobs suggests, need to let it be known that no Democrat running for office will see a penny from them unless they support Lamont.
Bottom line: all Democrats ought to immediately begin treating Lieberman as what he is -- a party-ditching, party-pooping, control-of-Congress risking spoiler, ie a danger to the Party.
Senators Harry Reid of Nevada and Chuck Schumer of New York said:
The perception was that (Lieberman) was too approximately George Bush and this was, in a lot of respects, a referendum on the president more than anything else.
due to Stephanie Reitz of the Associated Press:
Top Democratic leaders threw their support to Lamont, the anti-war challenger who said Lieberman was too supportive of the war and President Bush.
It seems to me that Democratic politicians are no longer provided to think for themselves and they're no longer provided to care about the American folks. They have to either be robots and follow the far left party line or they'll be cast out.
