Not Liberal Enough

Found a note running around the news that Joe Lieberman may face a Democratic primary challenger for his upcoming Senate race. No big name state democrat has challenged Joe in years, but it seems that Moveon.Org is trying very hard to find someone to try and knock him out of the Senate.
Tom Matzzie, Washington director of Moveon.org's political action committee, took umbrage at those comments, saying Thursday that Lieberman was "dead wrong" about Iraq. Matzzie went on to float the idea of challenging Lieberman with a candidate from the ideological left next year. "If there was a strong, viable opposition candidate to Lieberman in the Democratic primary we would ask our members what they want to do," Matzzie said. "Lieberman’s position on Iraq might handicap his ability to win the support of MoveOn members -- and other Connecticut voters." Lieberman's office declined to comment on Matzzie's remarks.

I don't know that MoveOn is going to find a candidate to beat Joe in a primary, but what they can do is weaken him, as has happened to others in the past, for the real election, though he won with 63% of the vote or more in his two other re-election campaigns.

Go to "The Fix" and read the comments if you want to see the part of the Democratic party that MoveOn is playing to.

I'd rather have Leiberman than several Republicans I can think of.
Of course, moveon isn't for Democrats really; they are for socialists and communists. (That's why they suck so bak!)

You're blogrolled, too.
Thanks for the same!! :)

If he were to lose the Democratic primary, we can always invite him to cross the aisle.

Like UAW said above, I'd take a dozen Leibermans and a good handfull of Zell Millers over so many weak-kneed RINO's currently taking up space on the conservative side of the aisle. We need a strong conservative idealogy base to counter the neo-euro-Socialism that so many of the "elite" find so seductive.

Last Thursday I got to enjoy a rare treat of listening to Sean Hannity on the radio. Seems that Sean is making plans to have a Republican fundraiser for Joe Leiberman. I don't know how serious he was, but they were talking about starting "Republicans for Lieberman".

Sean had actually asked Sen. Lieberman if it would help or hurt the Senators chances for re-election.

Joe, forget the Senate, go for a Lieberman-Rice presidential ticket for 2008! Screw Hillary!

It amazes me how so many of the folks who wanted him as VP now want to toss him out the window for agreeing with Bush on one subject.

It kind of shows the path our discourse in politics has taken over the last 20 years.
