Didn't McCain choose Palin instead of Lieberman as his running mate?  I remember reading something about that.

I believe DWTL was one of the stronger advocates of this theory.

Come to mention it, where is the fellow these days? Smiley

I think there's evidence of a Lieberman effect in Connecticut.  How else did Obama break 60%?

I think his parents grounded him for swearing at the TV Tuesday night.

J.J., I wanted to congratulate you on your assignment "A Typical Day In My Life". I think you did a superb job with it. So good that I think I'll share it with everyone else.

Has anybody seen any approval ratings for Lieberman in CT? There's no way he's even at 40%

You can be our next waltermitty, although perhaps a slightly better-informed version, and without the fetish for really old women.

Remember when Lief said Obama was going to win Kansas? Yeah, that's about as useful as your comment. Remember when BRTD obsessed over me making that joke a couple of times? Remember when he was the only one who kept bringing it up? Gosh, I'm ready for 2012 now.

He's over 40%, prety much at the same approval as Dodd.

Duke, if you really want to play that game, Nov 4th made a lot of the things you've said seem pretty silly in retrospect. Wink

As of September, Lieberman had a 37-54% approval-disapproval; Dodd 43-46%.

That wasn't the argument. It's simply that Lieberman would help McCain big time in Connecticut, on the ticket or not.
