Nothing Surprising Here

Traitor Joe Lieberman

Tiger Beat’s afternoon email thingie:

(RECENT) HISTORY LESSON — Former Sen. JOE LIEBERMAN is revealing for the first time the details of KARL ROVE and ELIZABETH DOLE secretly helping him beat NED LAMONT in the 2006 Connecticut Senate race, reports the Hartford Courant’s Christopher Keating. “It all started on the afternoon of the August 2006 primary when Lieberman was sitting with his family in the Goodwin Hotel in Hartford — just hours before Lieberman lost to Lamont. The phone rang, and the family was stunned to learn that Rove was on the line.” Lieberman shares all the details in the interview and his new book, “The Centrist Solution.”

We quickly turn to Traitor Joe’s local news:

“For the past 15 years, former U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman has never spoken publicly about the secret help that he received from Republicans Karl Rove and Elizabeth Dole to help him defeat Democrat Ned Lamont in the contentious 2006 Senate race.”

“But in a new book and an interview, Lieberman says that Rove, the chief political strategist for then-President George W. Bush, told him that he would do anything possible to help Lieberman against Lamont, an anti-war Democrat at a time when the Iraq War was highly controversial.”

Fleas always find a meal.

    Mrs. Dole used to have a very slim shred of respect from me, but it is now gone.

    I remember when the GQP was still the GOP. Here in Oregon we had a great Republican governor in the 1960’s whose name was Tom McCall. “Tom McCall led early efforts to help migrant workers. In September 1958 he led a meeting in Portland as chairman of the Steering Committee for the Oregon Committee on Migrant Affairs. This eventually led to groundbreaking migrant civil rights legislation passed by the Oregon Legislature in 1959.” Hard to imagine, a Republican helping migrants. He was also an environmentalist and had a beach bill passed which assured public access to all Oregon beaches. He really was the people’s governor, and the people loved him. The passage of the Civil Rights Bill, and the Voting Rights Bill by the Democrats in Congress during the Johnson admin was the beginning of the transition from the GOP to the GQP, pushed forward by Nixon, then Rayguns, the two Bushes, and then Trump., using the racism of the Southern whites to alter the political landscape to their advantage, and it worked. But the passage of these two key bills was intended to bring America forward to a more just future, and it did in part. The GQP’s racist process was both corrupting and damaging to our country, but also wasn’t limited to the GQP, we had our Lieberman’s and now Manchin’s and Sinema’s and others who seem hell bent on assisting the GQP at every chance they can. It makes me a little depressed when I think about what we could achieve if they were on board with the Biden agenda. We need to elect better people who put the interests of Americans before their greed. Maybe with TFG shooting his mouth off about not wanting his cultists to vote unless he is reinstated will help. IDK that it will help, but it couldn’t hurt…

    • You don’t even have to go tat far back in most places. Here in Tucson one of the most popular (also the longest serving) mayors we’ve ever had was a Republican, Lew Murphy. (now immortalized in asphalt…the Lew Murphy Overpass AND concrete, the Murphy Library which was my ‘home’ public library growing up)

      The last three or four mayoral elections in Tucson have offered choices between Democrats, Greens and Libertarians, because the local Republican party is a nest of squabbling rabid mongooses who cannot get their shit together to even get people on the ballot by [checks notes] getting ~1700 signatures from registered voters in a city with ~ 300,000 registered voters.

      The last Republican ever elected to the City Council changed his registration to Democrat in 2013 because, in his words, ‘the party left him’. he’s been a hella good guy in office, too (he’s my ward councilman, and he’s been top notch in constituent outreach. Voted for him happily this time around)

    Al Gore may have made worse decisions in his life, but I can’t think of anything worse than LIEberman as a running mate.
