Mid-Terms: Collegiate or Political, They Continue To Suck

Posted by codemorse


Sen. Joseph Lieberman conceded to cable executive Ned Lamont in the Democratic primary for the Connecticut Senate nomination Tuesday night but vowed to run as an "independent Democrat" this fall.

With 94 percent of the precincts reporting, Lamont led Lieberman 52 percent to 48 percent, according to The Associated Press.

The three-term senator said he was disappointed by the results but said he was more disappointed in how the primary campaign was conducted.

"The old politics of partisan polarization won today. For the sake of our state, our country and my party, and I cannot, I will not let this result stand."

Mr. Lieberman, with due respect toward the service you've shown your country - you're the proverbial pot, and you're black.

Partisan polarization was as much a factor in the running of your campaign as it was in Lamont's. If anything, the both of you should be ashamed of yourselves.
