Joe Lieberman and Louis Farrakhan
Phoenix Woman has the story.
Lieberman Loves Farrakhan
Remember the big stink the Powerline boys made over Minnesota state senator Keith Ellison's having as a college student -- along with many other naive black men who soon learned their lesson -- had the most tenuous and temporary of connections to Louis Farrakhan?
Remember, also, just how much the Powerline boys love Joe Lieberman, their favorite (former) Democrat?
Well, guess what:
Back in 2000 -- long after Keith Ellison and every key black leader and national figure had rejected Farrakhan's bigotry and anti-semitism, guess who was cuddling up to the guy?
OK, I'll tell you: Joe Lieberman.
Read the whole thing.
I remember hearing when Joe Lieberman first ran against Lowell Weicker (who was one of the 3 Senators who voted against an anti-gay "Helms amendment" on AIDS), that Joe Lieberman had worn rubber gloves to go to a homeless shelter because he thought he'd get AIDS.
Joe Lieberman lost the primary. He should not get a do-over in the general election. I wonder how Arlen Specter would have felt about Pat Toomey getting a do-over in the general after running in the Republican primary.
