While sometimes the comments on some of these posts can get out of hand, occasionally they bring up good points. The debate last night featured a question about whether the campaign ads were 100% truthful or not. The reality is that campaign ads are not the best place to find objective "truthiness". So there are non partisan web sites out there that do a decent job on outlining the record of Joe Lieberman. The Lamont campaign will be surprised to find out that Senator Lieberman is a Moderate Liberal. Not that much different than Libertarian-Leaning Liberal Senator Dodd. Slightly more Libertarian than Populist-Leaning LiberalNed Lamont. And surprisingly about the same as Alan Schlesinger. It seems Mr. Schlesinger is one of those RINO's you keep hearing about.
In congress we have the Moderate Libertarian Liberal Chris Shays and the Moderate Libertarian Rob Simmons and the Moderate Libertarian Conservative Nancy Johnson along with the Populist-Leaning Liberals Rosa Delauro and John Larson. It's too bad that the congressional challengers weren't profiled. Perhaps that is something we should pursue as post election project.
