    Them's fightin' words to the Miller folk here...

      I think you've got me.

      Miller, like Nelson, was openly batshit, while "Joementum" tried to hide it.

        when there were quite a few Lieberman supporters in this community. I don't know if they left or saw the error of their ways. But in the runup to the 2004 primaries, Joe had his bandwagon here.

          A long time ago, in a blog far, far away, someone linked me up to stories of Liberpuke wanting to censor Hollywood before he was Gore's running mate.

          He's always been a smarmy little prick.

          Full disclosure: I'm sorta glad he's taken this gig so I can continue to make fun of him, but I'm OH SO GLAD he doesn't have a vote in the Senate, any more.

          but those of us who used to listen to Colin McEnroe on WTIC could see the storm clouds gathering on the horizon. And when the storm broke, oh boy, it broke!

            it a war. The only reason many of us didn't fight Liebermanism so much was that he just wasn't that good of a politician so he wasn't much of a threat. His presidential races were pitiful. Gore just made a goof, almost as bad as McCain's. Lieberman was good on gay marriage I recall. Probably some other things. But overall, not a record to brag about.

              I played around at being a radio news reporter here in Connecticut and covered Lieberman when he a state senator from New Haven.  

              He was a pretty progressive guy back then, about 1980. And believe it or not, personally a nice guy.  

              Wonder what happened? Transformation into a right wing asshole seems complete.

          Luckily, I don't remember that. Maybe I wasn't here in 2004. I don't remember. I may have been too busy trying to get John Kerry elected.

          Jon Husted is a dick.
