Watching Politics and The Connecticut Primary

Yes, I know. Politics is boring.

What can I say? I'm a junkie.
I have a news summary on Lieberman's loss over at The Pacific Slope, and I plan to write some more on its implications later.

Very brief summary: Joe Lieberman lost, his anti-war challenger Ned Lamont won. This is not a Good Thing.

The sixties are back, in all their narcissistic navel-gazing vapid ignorant self-righteousness.

If the Democratic party wants to defeat themselves, that's their business. This particular defeat gives the Republican candidate a better chance of winning.

No, this is just a Democratic primary which means that Lieberman will run, and likely win, as an Independent offering further prove that the Democratic party has completely lost it's collective mind. {insert Howard Dean-like scream here}.

I believe folks grossly underestimate the difficulty of a Lieberman-as-independent candidacy. He may succeed in splitting the Democratic vote, but probably not by enough to generate a Republican win. Most nutmgeg staters can only refer to the GOP candidate as, "Who?"

I'm not anticipating a Republican win in Connecticut. I'm anticipating that Lieberman will take all. That is a Republican win, because the Democrats will lose a seat in the Senate.

Reach -

And from what I've heard about the Republican candidate - that may be a good thing.

In my opinion, the Republican doesn't have much of a chance regardless of how the primary turned out. Given the choice between Lieberman and Lamont, I'm pulling for Lieberman.
