you can't handle the truth

The nattering pundits, the oblivious media, and the incompetent and mendacious right-wingers in this country (hmmmm, come to think of it, I guess "nattering pundits" and "oblivious media" are redundant in that opening, aren't they?) have been coming up with dozens of reasons as to why the voters of Connecticut are going to boot Joe "WWWD"* Lieberman out of the Senate this fall.

They are talking about people giving "litmus tests" to Democratic candidates and voters being "anti-war" (which they say with a bit of a sneer, as if that's a BAD thing to be) and yet the answer is so obvious, I don't understand how everybody can be so far off-base.

So, to calm the waters and to explain once and for all why Lieberman is about to get his ass handed to him, here is the real reason why Ned Lamont will be the next senator from Connecticut.


Sitting down?

I mean it, this will shock even the most hardened politics-watcher.

The people of Connecticut have just recently realized that Joe Lieberman... not Henry Gibson.
