Now Lieberman has the stink of loser on him. His concession speech was the last gasp of the man with cement shoes sinking into Long Island Sound, vowing impotent vengeance on those who did him in. Accusing someone of "partisan politics" in a party's primary is not unlike accusing a marathon runner of running a marathon.
Joe Lieberman was insufficiently partisan, but was only the most vulnerably so. Let’s hope the message gets across. Polling won’t necessarily support greater partisanship, but it’s about the character of the partisans; the Democrats lack sufficient fortitude. It should have been the Democratic leadership that whipped Joe Lieberman’s self-serving ass.
