The Lieberman camp has just released info on a "lottery" they will be holding to distribute tickets to their event on Monday with Bill Clinton in Waterbury.

I have no doubt that plants like me would be disqualified from such a "lottery", but I'm sure there are hundreds of other loyal Connecticut Democrats here on DailyKos who would love to see our former President in Waterbury on Monday.

Of course, the real question will be whether Connecticut Democrats could be excluded from the event based on what they wear on their T-shirts or whether they suspect attendees of being rabid blogger jihadists.  Only one way to find out!  Details after the jump.

Ray Hackett, local reporter who has criticized bloggers for throwing "internet temper tantrums" and lacking "intellectual depth" but who just set up his own blog this week (ha!) has helpfully provided the following info:

U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman's campaign released the details of the Clinton visit on Monday in Waterbury, and will be holding a lottery later this evening to distribute tickets to the public interested in attending. If you are interested, this is what you need to do:
1. Send an e-mail to Marshall@joe , or
2. Stop by the Lieberman Waterbury campaign office at 86 Bank Streeet and sign up.
The lottery drawing will be held tonight and winners notified. Those winning tickets can pick them up at the Waterbury office Saturday and Sunday from 9 9 p.m., and on Monday 9 a.m. to noon. A valid photo ID will be required for admittance.
The event begins at 4 p.m. Monday at the Palace Theater.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    I did not see a loyalty oath as part of the requirements.  Will that be the day of the appearance?  What if you wear a shirt that says NO JOE?

    ...on MyLeftNutmeg that Clinton's visit could potentially backfire for Lieberman in some circles, for it will remind voters of the stark contrast between the Joe Lieberman who was willing to passionately denounce a sitting President on on the Senate floor for his marital infidelity, but who has failed to stand up to Bush.

    But in a time when the Republicans control the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives; at a time when the President has declared he has the authority to ignore the Constitution and negotiated treaties; at a time when we've discovered that we've invaded another country based on lies and misinformation; at a time of unprecedented peril, of instability in the middle east and the loss of our moral authority around the world, where is Joe Lieberman's outrage?  Where is his passionate denuciation of the President Bush?  A slight scolding?  Mild rebuke, maybe?

    Instead, in 2005, we got this from Senator Lieberman:

    Bottom line, I think Bush has it right.

    •  Clinton as a Lamont plant? (0+ / 0-)

      Could this be Pres. Clinton's way at getting back at Joe for what he did to him on the Senate floor?  I was thinking to myself what does the big dog have to gain by campaigning for someone like Joe?

      Also, what would be the reaction of the Republicans that Joe stands up for?

      Could it be a way to push Joe over the edge?

        Digby suggested yesterday that Clinton is trying to heal psychological wounds and shame by embracing the very man who scolded him for his worst mistake.  A redeption thing.  Pretty complex pathology, there, but it actually rings true to me as the adult child of alcoholics.

        On the other hand, it's VERY telling that both Bill and Hillary Clinton have said they will back the winner of the primary.  Of course they're going to do whatever they can to avoid that uncomfortable situation and help Lieberman win the primary, but the implied criticism of him for running his selfish vanity campaign if he loses is very powerful.

    ... as Bill's speech turns into a lecture on being a good Democrat and ends with the following... and because you Joe do not qualify as a good Democrat,

    I am announcing my endorsement of Ned Lamont's campaign to be the next DEMOCRATIC Senator of Connecticut.

    drawing for tickets to a theatrical presentation of political unity? BWAHAHAHAHAHAH...

    statistically, everyone who participates will be a winner, given the value of the prize and bald self-selecting criteria of participation.

    meanwhile, in arizona, real cynics get busy.

    “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Vote!” [Mark Osterloh] collected 185,902 signatures of registered voters, far more than the 122,612 required, and last week the secretary of state certified the measure for the ballot this fall.

    I still think election day should be changed to April 16th

    damn skippy efficient.
