For American Political Junkies....

The Connecticut Democratic Senate primary battle between anti-war left-winger Ned Lamont and incumbent, former VP candidate, Joe Lieberman is being viewed in some circles as a backlash against Lieberman's pro-Iraqi war stance and his alleged embrace of Bush policies. Lieberman, sometimes accused of being too pro-Israeli due to his Jewish religion, is one of the few remaining centrist Democrats in the Scoop Jackson neo-con mold of yesteryear.

But, I think that the battle over political principles is complete hogwash and a smokescreen. What voters are really angry about is during Lieberman's primary campaign to win the Democratic nomination for President in the last election in 2004, Lieberman coined the phrase "picking up Joementum." I think that such a hokey and corny phrase coming out of a serious politician's mouth turned voters off so now they are willing to opt for the annoying yuppie Ned 'empty suit' Lamont instead.
