Lieberman Gets Scared

Spends money so that Connecticut voters can see what a WATB he is:

HARTFORD, Conn. -- Democratic U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman started airing his first television campaign ads in years Thursday as he faces a challenge from within his own party.

The two 60-second spots, running statewide, highlight Lieberman's record on key Democratic issues such as abortion, energy independence, environmental protection and increased education funding.

One also touches on Lieberman's support of the war in Iraq _ a position that has angered many activist Democrats and helped fuel a challenge by Democrat and Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont.

"I already know that some of you feel passionately against my position in Iraq. I respect your views, and while we probably won't change each others' minds, I hope we can still have a dialogue and find common ground on all the issues where we do agree," Lieberman says in the TV spot.

I hope he runs these nonstop.

If you're a student in Connecticut make sure you think early about how you're going to get an absentee ballot. Make all your friends get them too. The primary is in August.
