    MoveOn Hits $1 Million Mark In Anti-Lieberman Campaign

    MoveOn Hits $1 Million Mark In Anti-Lieberman Campaign

    In less than two days time, the progressive action group MoveOn.org has raised more than $1 million for its campaign against Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.).

    The five-million-member group launched a fundraising drive on Tuesday after the Connecticut independent successfully killed key provisions from the Senate's health care reform legislation.

    The goal was set, initially, for $400,000. By 1:22 p.m. on Thursday they were past the $1 million mark and climbing. The money will go to an ad campaign against Lieberman and into a fund to oppose his re-election in 2012.

    The massive and quick response to the plea reflects just how much progressive frustration there is about the man who, eight years ago, was the Democratic vice presidential nominee.

    Additionally, on Thursday, MoveOn.org put out a comic web ad using sock puppets to mock Lieberman as a spotlight-seeking political diva -- and his colleagues in the Democratic caucus as spineless enablers of his behavior.

    He ain't a Dem. He was defeated in a primary, was not elected as a Dem, and he campaigned for the other party's presidential nominee. He ain't in the tent. He's outside pissing in.


    ps - he has 'not ruled out running as republican' next time he stands for election. I will enjoy watching how the party of purity tests treats ole Joe in a primary race, and a general election

    The only thing this will cause, is everyone from the Center, rightward, to donate their asses off to Lieberman.

    Me? I have seen the enemy and he is Liberalism.

    Liberals demand 100% compliance with the "Party". That's why 9 years after being their VP Nominee, the left has turned on Joe.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    That's funny. Why do Republicans accuse others of what they themselves do? Have you not seen the RNC Republican purity test?

    I don't know about Nazis ... however, it is the RNC that has devised a 10-pt purity test (which even Reagan would not pass), in order to determine who they will support.
