"Poll: Lieberman would 'get crushed' by Connecticut AG."
Being the sole member of the Connecticut for Lieberman party has never been such a lonely position. Democrats hate him, Republicans don't trust him, and the people at home think he's a dick.
According to the report, "A new poll shows that Independent Senator Joe Lieberman, who left the Democratic Party after losing the Senate primary to businessman Ned Lamont in 2006, would 'get crushed' if challenged by Connecticut's State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal in 2012."
A new Quinnipiac poll shows that if "Sen. Lieberman faces Blumenthal in 2012, the Democratic challenger has an early 58 - 30 percent lead."
"It's a long time until 2012, but this poll shows that if Connecticut's popular Democratic Attorney General Richard Blumenthal takes on Lieberman, as the buzz suggests, Lieberman would get crushed," Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D said.
"A lot can happen in four years, but right now it doesn't look like Lieberman has too many options," Erik Kleefeld of Talking Points Memo writes. "He can't run as a Democrat, he would still lose as a Republican, and there's no reason to believe that staying as an independent will provide much more of an opportunity."
I guess the only thing for Lieberman to do is crawl back up John McCain's ass and retire there. (Raw Story)
-How long before she's in a mental hospital?-
In one of her regular columns at noted homosexual Joseph Farah's WorldNetDaily, noted panicky lunatic Janet Porter warns that Barack Obama's not trying to turn America socialist. he's trying to turn it communist -- fullblown parading-missiles-through-the-streets-on-May-Day commie.
As proof of this, she cites some wingnut email about a Russian Soviet telling an American contractor that "you will have a black president very soon and he will be a Communist." This was supposedly in 1992. "His name is Barack," the email says the red told the patriot. "His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That's right, a chocolate baby! And he's going to be your president." The commie assured our fine American contractor that this had all been arranged by the party.
You've got to wonder how much money Janet Porter's sent to Nigerian cabinet ministers. If anyone wants to know what your typical right wing chump looks like, send them Janet's way. (WorldNetDaily, via Right Wing Watch)
There was some noise that Congress was going to hold hearings on the recent revelation that Alex Rodriguez had used steroids. Now there's not.
Why? No one freakin' cares. Our economy's in flames, people are talking seriously about nationalizing the banks, and employment numbers are dropping like a cinderblock in a duck pond.
"The American people need leaders who will focus on stemming job losses and getting credit to flow in the marketplace before hearing from yet another person who cheated both himself and the game of baseball," said Edolphus Towns, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, in a statement.
Yeah, we should be looking into bankers and CEOs who have cheated both us and us.
Seriously, screw baseball. (Bloomberg)
