Hat Tip to Mossley & The False God
Nice… really nice! Reaching out to Middle America, democrats think that a few racist jokes will do the job.
The new look Democratic Party has passed weird and is not just plain frightening. This piece today at the “respected” democratic website The Huffington Post by Jane Hamsher shows the contempt the new look democrats have for moderates in their mob:
E.J. Dionne repeats a piece of conventional wisdom that irks the hell out of me every time I hear it – if Lieberman loses the primary and runs as an independent it will distract everyone from the true villain, the GOP, and therefore we should just give him a pass.
Balderdash. Lieberman has been an integral part of the GOP’s bully machine for the past six years, the Democrat useful for his willingness to dicipline his own kind. Ned Lamont is running a legitimate primary contest and Joe is refusing to abide by the results of that primary. As Lowell Weicker said the other day, when he became an independent he didn’t screw with the Republican primary first (my words not his) he just left. Joe is mucking up the Democratic primary and then abandoning the party to attack it from the outside. How this is the fault of Ned Lamont or his supporters I would very much like to know.
“Vote for me or I’ll take the party down with me” hardly seems like an honest way to win an election.
Dionne says he personally knows and likes Lieberman. Perhaps he and all the other DC insiders who are so worried that this Lamont challenge will end up hurting Democrats in the fall should have a talk with Joe. After all, whether or not there is a “distraction” is entirely in his hands.
Joe is pulling in nearly $100,000 a day in donations; he’s now raised over $10 million dollars and he’s pouring it into vote buying. This money isn’t coming because Joe is beloved; it’s coming because toppling him is a threat to oh so many who see their gravy train coming to an end if they have to be responsible to an electorate who expect them to stand for something.
The Anchoress has an absolutely brilliant analysis of today’s unhinged episode.
Here’s another racist attack on the moderate…
Here’s another racist image of moderate Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman posted today at FireDogLake.
In related news: It doesn’t come as much of a surprise that the liberal media failed to denounce the racist rhetoric in attacks on Condoleezza Rice last week in the Mideast press.

Update: Ted Lamont is now running from the nutjob bloggers. Hah!
