Joe Dives Into The Shallow End
Joe Lieberman’s paranoia has reached its peak as he today blames the Lamont campaign for sabotaging him website. It could be those evil bloggers….or, maybe it’s that his $15 a month web hosting service isn’t capable of handling a statewide GOTV effort. But if Holy Joe can’t figure out that making out with President Bush on national TV might cause him some problems in the primary, this little truth might prove too logical for him to grasp as well.
In other Lieberman news, Chris Matthews just reported on Hardball that Lieberman will in fact run as an independent if he loses to Lamont today. See, he’s not really a Democrat, he’s an incumbent hell bent on keeping his job. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out Joe.
Update: Early returns have it at 60%-40% Lamont. Could be a blowout, but then again, those machines can always "self correct" at any moment.
Update II: I'm heading down to Drinking Liberally, but wanted one last update. With 35% of precincts reporting, it's 54% to 46% Lamont. Still, there is always the less sinister (than vote switching that is) fact that urban areas will likely report last and some seem to think that that's where Lieberman will get much of his support. I don't see it, but I'm still only cautiously optimistic.
