This Surprises… No-One.

Cute little tidbit from Kos, by way of Atrios:

[From a College Republicans e-mail]

Incumbent Senator Joe Lieberman (Democratic Primary)
Lieberman is facing a tough primary fight versus far-left anti war activist Ned Lamont.
—————————————————————-
August 4-9th Primary Campaigning:

Elissa Harwood ’09… has organized a series of buses departing on Friday August 4 from Washington DC… and NYC, destination: Hartford, CT

People interested in campaigning for Lieberman in the Democratic Primary will have lodging accommodations paid for (by his campaign), as well as food and transportation.

I hope Lamont’s campaign is all over this. Not only is Joe accepting aid from the other team, but he’s actually paying them for it. What better evidence do CT Democrats need that Joe is entirely too cozy with the Republican party and has no loyalty to his own?

Look, it’s one thing for the College Republicans to come to CT to campaign for Joe because he’s their favorite Democrat; there’s nothing Joe could do to stop them. But not only does he not state unequivocally that their support is unwanted and unwelcome, but he actually facilitates it out of his own pocket. He is, in fact, making an in-kind contribution to the Republican Party, which can pass that savings along to, say, the Santorum campaign.

This is an eerie mirror image of the spectacle taking place here in PA, where the GOP is actively supporting the Green candidate for Senate, and the Green candidate is perfectly happy about it, much like Nader was in 2004.

I don’t think it’s unfair to judge a candidate by the company they keep. And any Democrat or Green who accepts aid from the Republican party is a witting, willing tool of their own party’s destruction.

Is our preznit learning?

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A White House spokesperson announced President Bush is reading successfully at the sixth grade level.

“The President is absolutely thrilled at his latest achievement,” said Edward Thurut. “And he wants the American people to know just how far he’s progressed the past year. He’s been officially tested by the D.C. school board, and the results arrived at Pennsylvania Avenue earlier this morning. The President wishes to thank all those who believed in him, especially First Lady Laura, the lovely librarian who won his heart so many years ago.”

(…)

While many educators across the U.S. have applauded the President’s persistence in trying to improve his reading comprehension, there’s a growing concern over his mathematical aptitude as well.

“It’s clear the President’s mathematical comprehension is also on par with a junior high school child,” said Constance Souron, William and Terri University’s Dean of Education. “That’s ironic, considering it’s our children who will be left dealing with this outlandish budget deficit he created.”

“William and Terri University.” Hee.

No word on whether he’s massaging at a sixth grade level.
