Ned Lamont won, Lieberman proves he's a sore loser, Emanuel and Durbin speak out

Time to chime in on the Senate race in Connecticut. I was glued to the news yesterday to see what would happen. It's such a great feeling to finally have a win! The DC status quo people are on notice. Don't defy the voters!

The voters of Connecticut struck a blow for democracy and against the Republican Rubber Stamps like Sore Loser Joe Lieberman yesterday. Every Illinois Democrat should come out and say they support the Democratic candidate: Ned Lamont.

It's good to see some Illinois Democrats in important positions are speaking out.

Rahm Emanuel has been infuriatingly quiet about speaking out on the Iraq War, but if he continues to talk about Bush and his rubber stamp enablers like this through November we could win the House.

Conn. Race Could Be Democratic Watershed
Rep. Rahm Emanuel (Ill.), chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said Friday he is not worried about the fallout from the Senate primary on House races, arguing that the message from Connecticut is that anyone supporting Bush's war policies is in deep trouble. "What's playing out here is that being a rubber stamp for George Bush is politically dangerous to life-threatening," he said.


A Referendum on Iraq Policy
"This shows what blind loyalty to George Bush and being his love child means," said Representative Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, the leader of the Democratic House Congressional campaign. "This is not about the war. It's blind loyalty to Bush."

Then, today Chicago Public Radio local news at the top of the hour played a clip of Senator Dick Durbin supporting Ned Lamont. He even admited (paraphrase here) Lieberman lost because he was seen as too cozy with Bush. Uh huh! You can say that again!

Joe Lieberman is the biggest sore loser I have ever seen. He's said "f*@! you" to the voters of Conneticut. His run for Senate after the voters said, "No, we don't want you as our nominee." is arrogant and destructive. He lost the election. He should be man enough to accept the will of the voters with grace. The Democrats should kick him out of their caucus.
