Anyone concerned with the privacy aspects of shipping CT tax data to Mass?

Lamont has a response prepared before the speech is even given?

Great song, but the original movie was pretty average.

Best picture from the lengthy Lamont video:

Pres. Bush & Sen. Lieberman smiling at each other and there with a HUGE, BEAMING smile on her face - Sen. Hilary "I support the war too" Clinton!

From Lieberman's speech preview:

"We have to realize that reasonable people can disagree on this difficult question, and that does not make you a terrorist sympathizer, on the one hand, or a warmonger, on the other."

I guess his statement of August 10 that:

"If we just pick up like Ned Lamont wants us to do, get out by a date certain, it will be taken as a tremendous victory by the same people who wanted to blow up these planes in this plot hatched in England. It will strengthen them and they will strike again."

is no longer operative.

Yo, ACR. I heard the State Elections Enforcement Commission dismissed the complaint against Scott MacLean over that nutty false address thing you were always carping about. Why didn't you tell us? Too difficult to spin, huh?

Here is Joe Lieberman’s mentor’s story.

This is in response to this joe2006.com garbage. Nothing like when the Lieberman site bashes Lamont for taking campaign money from his greenwich buddies back in 1990 when he ran for US senate or this current race.

Here is the reality.

There is nothing like when billionaire republican bloomberg is hosting campaign fundrasiers this month for defacto republican Lieberman. Joe Lieberman is mayor Bloomberg the second. I found Bloomberg’s bio on wikipedia to be exactly what Lieberman’s new legacy is trying unfold as this election season.

“In 2001 the incumbent mayor, Rudy Giuliani, was ineligible for re-election, as New York limits the mayoralty to two terms. Several well-known New York City politicians aspired to succeed him. Bloomberg, a lifelong member of the Democratic Party, decided to run for mayor as a member of the Republican Party, reportedly to avoid the crowded field in the Democratic primary.”

“In addition to being the Republican nominee, Bloomberg had the ballot line of the controversial Independence Party, in which “Social Therapy” leaders Fred Newman and Lenora Fulani exert strong influence. The latter proved important, as Bloomberg’s votes on that line exceeded his margin of victory over Green. (Under New York’s fusion rules, a candidate can run on more than one party’s line and cumulate all the votes received on all lines. Green, the Democrat, also had the ballot line of the Working Families Party.) Another factor was the vote on Staten Island, which has traditionally been far friendlier to Republicans than the rest”.

the Lamont Campaign and the Liberals Continuing their delusional thinking!!!


This is why Lamont will lose on November 7th Because their way of thinking is very very UnAMerican and Very very Very Unacceptable

Capt. Midnight--
What's un-American and unacceptable are stupid, elective and potentially unwinnable wars.

This is why the uber-hawk and Iraq War-monger Joe Lieberman will be retired in November.

Why did Joe wait so long to give a "major" policy speech which ends up being exactly the same thing he has been saying to date.

Its more of the same about more of the same.

The Declaration of Connecticut's War Monger: Joe Lieberman

For people interested in the 16th District State Senate race, there was a nice column in the Waterbury Republican about gay marriage. While I don't think states should be in the business of marriage at all, it was an interesting take on how Zoni is dodging and hiding his support for gay marriage. Zoni's largest donor was "Love Makes a Family" (a extreme pro-gay marriage group), yet he has no mention on his website, literature or has yet to say a word about gay marriage. I realize that politics is often polarized, but it should openly polarized. People should not trying to be placating the center, when they are devout supporters of a very decisive moral issue. I am starting to think that Zoni is just taking any money he can, to stay afloat. Doesn't seem to be working, the Zoni boat is sinking.

The SEEC failed to address (no pun intended) just why Scotty would have gotten his address right on his
driver's license a full year before he registered to vote using the "wrong" address.

Seems more than a little fishy to me.

He even calls a pro-choice, de-criminalize drugs guy a "Conservative Republican". (I'm more accustomed to being called a RINO by conservative Republicans.)

MacLean's simply too much; and apparently very little contact with reality.

For the record he's never disavowed John Thomas's remarks that have been refered to by the Simon Wiesenthal Center as anti-semetic. They should be considered a good enough source.


I'd love to see what his real biography looks like and to learn just why he's no longer a practicing minister.

We can only imagine.

I imagine the worst.

Yes it does, but you have to know where to look.

Actually ACR, FYI, you've got it wrong about the driver's license info. The address on the CT license represets the licensee's current address as of the date of the printout. The date the license was issued is just that. However, if the licensee does a change of address, that new address would show up on the back of the driver's license as a handwritten sticker while the front side, with the picture, remains with the old address. The computer information in the database, which you printed out, would only reflect their current address, not their address when the license was issued.

I guess you owe Mr. MacLean ANOTHER apology...

And seeing as we paid for the entire history would've included any previous address.

You're mistaken.
