Who knew there were so many kinds of Democrats? You see, I thought that to become a Democratic candidate, one would naturally have to win a Democratic primary. But Lieberman thinks otherwise. He thinks he can run as an “Independent Democrat”, which I guess means a Democrat independent of the actual Democratic voters in Connecticut, sort of a Democrat independent of democracy. Oh, but he still wants to win the democratic Democratic primary, it’s just that if he doesn’t he has “loyalties that are greater than those to my party.” How independent of him. If the party bigwigs like Charles Schumer don’t call him on this bullshit, it will be gravely disappointing and only highlight the need for Crashing the Gate (see sidebar).
