Why this blog was created

My name is Bob Adams, and I have a progressive blog called "Connecticut Bob".

We're about a month away from the election, and I've read dozens of complaints from interested voters who are being denied the opportunity to comment upon the articles posted in the Joe2006.com blog "Blog of Joe".

This is AFTER the Lieberman campaign promised to allow comments, with the exception of those containing obscene words. In other words, they said they'd moderate their comments section but only delete obscene posts.

What actually happened was that Joe2006 did have a fair share of naughty words posted there (and you can still see examples that the Lieberman campaign claims was posted on it's blog located here) and the blogmaster refused to moderate the comments. So they took the comments section down.

The REAL reason they removed the comments is too many people were disagreeing with Joe's political actions and partisan philosophy, and Lieberman's people didn't like that. So rather than address these people's concerns, they did what the Republicans have been doing for years: shut down the right to free speech and pretend everything is hunky dory.

So here's your chance to comment upon Joe's daily blog entries. Be aware that we WILL moderate these comments, but only for rude behaviour, racist or threatening comments.

This is a FREE SPEECH ZONE, not a SPEECH-FREE zone.

CTBob -- you are ingenious. Thank you so much for setting up this site. I hope folks will use it so we can finally see some discussion on the unfettered and unchallenged talking points over at the other joint.

I'm glad you set up this site, after the ridiculous and embarrasing behavior of pro-lamont supporters on the liberman blog, it gives everyone a chance to blow off on either candidate.

Perhaps I can get some advice--it seems that when I go to school wearing my jacket-inside out, people stare at me and some have even said some snarky comments. I want to show my support for Ned--please tell me what to do.

There were plenty of anti-Joe comments on his blog, but I don't think that they came from very many Lamont supporters. People have been unhappy with Joe for YEARS. When Lieberman provided a forum for them, YEARS of frustration spilled out.

That's what happens when you ignore your constituency.

Too bad you can't recover the threads from the original Blog o' Joe; there was some real content there that deserved a response from this silly candidate.
