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.
