Joe stands tall in final debate

Posted October 24th

In case you missed the third and final debate last night, Joe was the top of his game.

He stood head and should shoulders above his opponents in his mastery of the issues, particularly in terms of the complex threat posed by jihadist terrorism and the challenge of reforming our broken health care system.

He showed his sense of humor and self-effacing charm, as well as his strength and sense of purpose.

And perhaps most importantly, he made his most compelling case yet in the debates for his unique ability to break through the partisan gridlock in Washington and get things done for the people of Connecticut.

It’s a shame that the boorish behavior of a small group of boorish LaRouche fanatics dominated much of the coverage. But for those who watched, there is no question who the most qualified candidate on the stage was.

Otherwise, a few special thank you’s are in order.

First, to Alan Schlesinger for standing up for Joe when the protestors interrupted his closing statement. While Ned Lamont sat silently and passively as the anti-war fanatics sang their song, Alan leapt up and told the Larouchies to shut up and get out.

Second, to all our supporters who came out for the debate and for the debate parties we hosted at Hanifan’s in New London, Toad’s in New Haven, and Joe Black’s in Hartford. Your enthusiasm in showing your Joe was much appreciated. We hope you had as good a time as we did.

Third, to our bagpiping friends who came by Hanifans to help us celebrate after the debate. We were a little surprised to see them in our party after they played for Ned’s little pre-debate parade up to the Garde Arts Center. But we got the laugh of the night when they told us they were just taking Ned’s money and were all voting for Joe...

Goes to show that the people of Connecticut can't be bought.

OMG, talk about spin. Not even Joe's 'supporters' in the audience cheered his BS about the "lies", some of them looked like they wanted to crawl inside those tiny goddamn chairs and hide. Joe got toasted like whole wheat last night, and he thinks he 'stands tall'???

I still can't believe Erik watches the same debates the rest of us do. If I recall correctly, Stephanopolous was the moderator, thus in charge of crowd control. He was a weenie. Then there was Joe, who was a whiney. And as for the pipers -- if the statement is true, what's the point? Ned paid for a service, not a vote as has been snidely stated. You guys are the ones with the missing third of a million dollars for which you refuse to account. One would expect there might be attempts at bought votes -- in the school of LBJ.

Oh, and Erik, thank god for close up lenses -- helps make it look like 20 people equal a crowd of supporters. The Lamont folks used long-range and video and still couldn't capture all of their supporters.

Where's the journal, Erik?

An interesting point about the pipers:

Lamont was paying for a service.

But Lieberman is trying to buy votes...

The Iraq war is a travesty based on lies and deceit. The "war on terror" has become an excuse for Cheny and Bush to attempt the transformation of the U.S. into a government of rule by executive decree. Your candidate has knowingly aided and abetted the admistration policies that threaten to distroy our nation. Real patriots will not forget this.

Have a nice day,

Joe LIE-man used to blink a lot during his lying in the primary debate.

Now he is even better - he lies without blinking. That man is absolutely morally confused, deluded and now I can add SOULLESS.

It is not Joe for CT but Joe LIE-man for the dump; he is plain trash. LIAR!

Why doesn't Joe address the REAL Republican during the debate instead of just rebutting the REAL Democrat all the time?

Even when he is being equalled to being a Hallowen masquerade:)?

What a hoot:)!!!!

Thanks for having the guts to take comments.

Ned may have paid the piper on Monday, But Joe will pay the piper on November 7.

More evidence of Joe LIE-man lying ...fr here


Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-CT) accepted $16,200 in contributions from corporations and executives who
profit from pornography. Still, Sen. Lieberman, along with recovering gambling addict William Bennett
gave out “Silver Sewer Awards” for immoral videos.57 He has stated that there is “. . . too much violence,
too much sex, too much incivility in entertainment, which makes if very difficult for parents, who are
working so hard to give their kids values and discipline.”58 Sen. Lieberman has also complained about the
number of porn stars featured on MTV.

Joe lost at least 2 supporters because of his "LIES" accusation on the stage. He really crossed a line with that one. The boos were well deserved; he really lost it.
