Moveon gets 1 million in 2 days to defeat Lieberman !!
WASHINGTON — Sen. Joe Lieberman’s (I-CT) staunch refusal to support both the public option and the Medicare buy-in compromise, thereby killing both programs, has sent the progressive base into a fury, eager to toss him out of office.
The liberal advocacy group MoveOn.org on Thursday announced that it had raised more than $1 million in a campaign drive to target Joe Lieberman for "single-handedly gutting health reform," as they accused him of doing in their first e-mail to members Tuesday.
"First, we’re going to launch a huge ad campaign," Tuesday’s e-mail read, "to make sure every last Connecticut voter knows that Senator Lieberman is blocking strong reforms. Then, we’ll push Senate leaders to strip him of his chairmanship and seniority. Finally, we’ll work to defeat him in his next election."
"Joe Lieberman can’t be allowed to stay in the U.S. Senate," MoveOn declared.
you’re gonna have tons of fun with that add, it’s the best anti Lieberman add to date as far as I am concerned
it seems Lieberman high jacking health reform has a silver lining after all, it’s galvanized the forces against his continued seat of power
With any luck at all, lieberman is out next cycle
