Provocative title yes, but truth be told when you make the rounds of the Sunday morning talk shows and see the erstwhile presidential candidate make such a fool of himself you have little choice.
Kerry, known around the Cavity as The Baroque Candidate, appeared on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopolous making the claim Joe Lieberman was seriously out of touch with the citizens of Connecticut:
Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., blasted a fellow Democrat, Sen. Joe Lieberman, for continuing his bid in the Connecticut Senate race despite a narrow loss to newcomer Ned Lamont in the Democratic primary earlier this month.
“I’m concerned that [Lieberman] is making a Republican case,” Kerry told ABC News’ “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” in an exclusive appearance.
Kerry accused the 2000 Democratic vice presidential candidate of “adopting the rhetoric of Dick Cheney,” on the issue of Iraq.
“Joe Lieberman is out of step with the people of Connecticut,” Kerry added, insisting Lieberman’s stance on Iraq, “shows you just why he got in trouble with the Democrats there.”
Kerry called Lieberman’s independent bid a “huge mistake” and applauded businessman-turned-politician Lamont as “courageous” for challenging Lieberman on the war.
Looks like Kerry is in reciept of the Dean memo, he attempted the same crapola last week.
Kerry needs a not so gentle reminder the primary election held in Connecticut only drew about 7% of eligible voters and hardly can be considered an indicator of “trouble” for anyone. Well except Ned “Blog What Blog” Lamont.
If Kerry hadn’t wasted his time babbling incoherently on ABC he would have heard Joe Lieberman on Face the Nation take a stance that is close to the heart of his appeasement monkey base, the resignation of Donald Rumsfeld.
And while tuning in CBS to see the Lieberman appearence he could have studied the latest Quinnipiac poll that has Joe-mentum ahead by 11 points in a three-way race, up from 4 just after the primary.
Somebody is out of step, but it isn’t Joe.
