    so desicively in the primary that he is shamed in to giving up his bid. Pressure from national dems could help here too.

    RINOs are useful. Support Chafee, Shays, etc.

      Joe is about as shameless as his kissing buddy Bush, so he won't withdraw from the race for that reason.  But just maybe if the campaign money dries up, Joementum will fade away like his predecessor, Zell Miller.

      Anyone hear anything from the Zell-out man lately?

        other Republican running statewide in Georgia. And he still says he's a "Democrat." What a loser.

        If your name was George Walker instead of George Walker Bush, your candidacy would be a joke.

        The smart part of me wants Joe to lose on the 8th and concede with what little integrity he has left.

        But more and more, the part of me that is so thoroughly disgusted with Joe wants him to stay in the race and:

        • Lose the support of virtually every Democratic official, from alderman to senator
        • Lose the support of CT Dems
        • Lose the support of CT Reps, who, all things being equal, would actually rather have a Republican senator
        • Lose the support of the Beltway pundits and the media
        • Lose the support of his wealthy donors
        • Lose the support of the unions
        • Lose support across every demographic
        • Watch his paid and volunteer staff quit early
        • See daily quotes and news footage of angry voters castigating him for trying to do an end-run around the democratic process

        and

        • See Joe lose to Ned by 50 points in November
        •  What you envision (2+ / 0-)

          would certainly end his career in politics.  If he loses to Lamont and acts like a gentleman, he might make a political comeback some day.

          If he crashes and burns the way you've envisioned, he probably couldn't even get a career as a lobbyist, which is a natural fall back job for defeated senators.  He'd be stuck begging scraps from the Republicans' tables.

          We're all pretty crazy some way or other; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is just a setting on the dryer.
