Hey, there've been a few times where I've called Matt a prick too, but I think you people are wrong on this one.
Just because he can't immediately provide the original source for the quote doesn't mean that his information is untrustworthy.
Give this a bit of time and check out my post from a bit earlier. It appears to me that not only did Lieberman say homosexuality is wrong, he called it an unacceptable way to live.
though it would be nice to have a link to the original comment in the New Haven newspaper, he obviously said it.
The source provided is three years old. There have been dozens of mentions of that specific quote in all types of media.
If the quote weren't accurate, Lieberman wouldn't let it stand.
Jefferson's actions are indefensible and it does not matter how the FBI discovered the cash.
Someone ask these CBC members what innocent explanation there could possibly be for $90K in the freezer. And while they're tripping over their tongues trying not to sound too stupid, lets get the ball rolling on some primary challenges.
I still think MoveOn should push the OpEd theme that only Connecticut members were voting in this online primary and that Joe couldn't be bothered with them.
If Lieberman's going to claim that MoveOn members are all a bunch of loonies, I think it should be made clear that he's specifically trashing his own constituents, because they're the only ones who could vote.
To previous posters: I saw the Wellstone ads. They were refreshingly different. And his school bus, which was kinda the mascot of his ads, was seen all over Minnesota. That tie-in made those ads effective.
What's the point of having Markos, a Californian, in these ads? It plays to criticism that Lamont doesn't have much home state support and is the product of nerdy internet rabblerousers.
There are a hundred images in my mind right now that would be more effective than this nonsense. Quote editorials, show Connecticut delegates for Lamont, have Ned talking about the future with his wife and family.
Just don't have him playing checkers with the Teletubbies, though that would be less odd than this commercial.
As much as I love Kos, I have Democratic-voting relatives in Connecticut who have heard of him, but have no idea what he looks like. If they see these commercials, they'll wonder who the hell this goofy guy is on the couch with Ned.
