It’s official — NARAL has endorsed Joe "short ride" Lieberman.  According to Ned Lamont’s campaign manager Tom Swan, Ned was not even asked to take part in the process.

Am I the only one who is horrified by the sad state of the pro-choice movement in this country?  The one bright spot is NOW, who seems to actually care about the cause they ostensibly support with their bizarre insistence that candidates they endorse actually be pro-choice.  NARAL and Planned Parenthood just keep giving Democrats license to abandon their issues and still retain the pro-choice stamp of approval, and people who care and donate are being deluded into thinking that people like Lincoln Chafee, Maria Cantwell and Joe Lieberman — who all voted for cloture on Alito — are doing anything positive that isn’t completely symbolic while actively participating in taking a wrecking ball to women’s rights.

I’m officially quite angry about this.
