Jomentum Gets GOP Backing

I remember as a kid seeing an old movie about a small village in occupied France during WWII that had these three French women with their heads shaved. Being to young to understand the actual significance of these women with early Sinead O’Conner do’s I just remember my mom telling me they were ‘collaborationists’ and this was the village’s way of labeling them to warn members of the French underground.
What a great shame we can’t shave ol’ Joementum’s head to warn others’s in the Democratic Party what his real, honest, and true color is. Via Daily Kos I picked up this little tidbit about our man in Connecticut through Bob “Hey, I outed Valerie Plame” Novak, of all people:

“Two prominent Republican lobbyists, Craig Fuller and H.P. Goldfield, hosted a fund-raising dinner Thursday evening at Goldfield's Washington home for Democratic Sen. Joseph Lieberman, seeking re-election in Connecticut this year.

Fuller was President Ronald Reagan's Cabinet secretary and later Vice President George H.W. Bush's chief of staff. Goldfield, a Reagan White House aide and later assistant secretary of Commerce, was a fund-raiser in the two Bush-Quayle campaigns.
While Lieberman is a major voice for lobbyist reform, three of his dinner's five hosts were registered lobbyists. Fuller represents the National Association of Chain Drug Stores. Goldfield lobbies for Airbus and for energy companies (ConcocoPhillips, Dynegy International and Gulfsands Petroleum). Co-host C. Michael Gilliland, a partner in the Hogan & Hartson law firm, represents a variety of clients.”Well, isn’t that special. Adding to that I was listening to Air America’s “Majority Report” Monday night in their 3rd hour when they played an audio excerpt from FOXNews’ Hannity & Colmes. Hannity was offering Lieberman all the support he could get and even offering to do a fund raiser for Joementum.

Ol' Lieberman doesn't have the gravitas to pull of the Zell "I'm an angry post 9-11Democrat." He's been doing this since the 2001 inaugural and he needs to just cut the pretense and end the misery and switch parties already.
