DSCC to Holy Joe: you're on your own
Heh heh heh. Raw Story‘s John Byrne has spoken to a senior Dem party official who says Holy Joe’s going to be left out in the cold if he goes independent after losing to Ned Lamont in the primary.
In a serious blow to Sen. Joseph Lieberman’s (D-CT) reelection campaign, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is likely to back the winner of the Democratic primary in Connecticut, meaning that Lieberman may be left without national allies for campaign money.
In even more ridiculous related news, cut and run Joe is calling in his favors, and he’s lined up Sens. Joe Biden (DE), Barbara Boxer (CA) and Ken Salazar (CO) to shill for him. I love Jane’s comment about “Bankruptcy Bill” Biden:
Joe Biden will bring his bleached teeth and hair transplants to Connecticut to campaign for Holy Joe.
Boxer’s presence on the stump is quite disturbing; she believes Holy Joe opposition is “‘all about the war’ and that on women’s issues, he was great.”
The women of Connecticut don’t think so. Before Boxer steps in the deep doo-doo Lieberman has created for himself with women in this state by his stance on Plan B and publicly funded Catholic hospitals, she might want to educate herself on his history. I’ll quote the great Connecticut Bob here:
Lieberman said he believes hospitals that refuse to give contraceptives to rape victims for “principled reasons” shouldn’t be forced to do so.
“In Connecticut, it shouldn’t take more than a short ride to get to another hospital,” he said.
