    the important thing here IMO isn't the content of this man's request - it's Lieberman's non-response to it.

    I began to get in touch with Representative DeLauro and Representative Simmons, who both responded quickly and enthusiastically. Senator Dodd also responded quickly ....

    However, I did not receive a response from Senator Lieberman's office.

     

    As the old cliche goes, all politics is local, and constituent service gets noticed. My late mother was represented by a lousy republican (Elton Gallegly, still in office) - but when she needed something his office helped.

      While, again, I'm not defending or accusing Lieberman, the fact that he wrote Senator Lieberman does not mean he is deserving of a response.  Maybe you think he his and therefore Lieberman loses your vote.  Maybe he think's he is and therefore Lieberman loses his vote.  But just because Simmons and Dodd wanted to make sure they kept their voter's happy and Lieberman may have chosen not to kiss ass...doesn't make him wrong.  Not saying he's right at all on the issue either though.

      Maybe I should, but I probably won't.
