Open Forum

Polls suggest two close races tomorrow. It should be a blast. Here are some recent articles to chew on.
Lots more to come, I'm sure.

I'm going to modify my earlier predictions:

Lieberman wins by 5% and Malloy by 7%. I know I have a bet in with Brubenstein for a trip to the pistol range based on a Lieberman 11% win, but I think it's going to be close...with Lieberman still taking the nomination.

What's not being brought up enough in the Primary eve press is that the Primary results aren't even binding on Joe.

Senator Lieberman has put himself above the will of the CT Democratic Party, and based upon that alone people should vote against him.

It's utter bullsh*t that we might have to suffer Lieberman/Lamont for another three months, what with so many other important races in Connecticut. My Democratic Party is bigger than any one person, be it Hillary Clinton, or Joe Lieberman.

Great, from CTBob, I guess Lieberman people are already engaging in dirty tricks.

"I really was hoping we wouldn't see a repeat of the dirty tricks, deception, criminal activity, and ethical wrongdoing that was prevalant during the 2000 Presidential campaign, but it looks like we're heading for a repeat of that disaster. We might end up looking like Florida in 2000, or Ohio in 2004. Do you want that?"

One of Bob's readers makes the sad prediction that this will be yet another stolen election. Let's hope not.

I live in East Lyme, and was just privy to this little scene...

I'm driving through a main intersection in town, and see a car in front of me pull over suddenly. Two kids, looked like teenagers, hop out with DeStefano for Governor signs. They sprint up to a lawn with two Malloy signs, rip them out, put in the DeStefano signs, and run back to the car with the Malloy signs.

Aren't politics fun?

This am I saw an orange CT DOT pickup truck taking my neighbors Lamont sign.

I asked why they were doing it? The gut said because they were in the state-right-of-way (that is a joke -- they were at least 20' from the road -- between their house and the sidewalk even!

I looked in the truck and they had probably 50 Lamont signs and maybe 10-15 Malloy signs...

Diving through Danbury and Ridgefield, the only signs I saw were Lieberman (near state highways).

Anyway -- my point. My neighbor works for DOT bridge division. He just told me that the unions instructed the workers to remove Lamont and Malloy signs ONLY.

Shows you the power of unions -- and our tax dollars at work.

What a crock!!!

I have (had) two Lieberman signs on my lawn for about a week.

This morning, much to my surprise, they were gone.

In their place -- on the same frames, I believe, were two Lamont signs. Needless to say, they are gone and Leiberman signs are there again (feel like putting razor blades in the tops).

That is pretty ballsy.....

Lieberman campaign site now down since 5:55 Pm

Whats happening with his campaign can't they pay there bills?

Wolcottboy said...

Anon 6:22- did you report it to the police?

I've always wondered about these reports and if spotted, why no one tails these vehicles, files an official complaint and a police report. I would think I'd hear about it in the paper if ... but then again due to stupid 'confidentiality' laws, can anyone report that a state employee on the job with a state vehicle participated in illegal activity and was punished?

Wolcottboy said...

I predict a Lieberman loss of 1-2%. Possible repeat of Florida without the recount. He'll run as an independent (wouldn't you?). (35% chance of occuring)

Though I wonder about his latest statements tonight -that will be the clincher if he wins by at least 4-5%. (65% chance of occuring)

If Lieberman comes within 10% of Lamont, Lamont is toast in the general election. There's absolutely no way that Lamont can tailor his campaign to appeal to Republicans and non-liberal unaffiliates to actually win the general election.

Wolcottboy said...

Wait a second... why are you signing anonomous to your 'complaints'? Put your money where your mouth is.

justavoter said...

Just checked Joe's campaign site it now say's Vote For Who You Know
Check Back Soon.

What a joke.On Tuesday when Lieberman and comapny lose he will fire everyone.

the latest joke is at its white backround like the sight is down and this message .

I cannot wait to vote Joe out of office for good.

Anon 131-

Thank you for pointing that out. I have deleted it and will delete yours shortly since it has the wording that is inappropriate in it.
