The Left’s Puppets Turn on Lieberman

Posted By Rhonda Robinson On December 18, 2009 @ 1:09 pm In NewsReal Blog | No Comments

Joe Lieberman is the latest target of the left’s “isolate, humiliate and eliminate” strategy. The Independent Senator from Connecticut is held by progressives as solely responsible for the defeat of the public option and Medicare expansion. Now they are trying to get him out of office, and have pulled out their secret weapon (wait for it…) the sock puppets.

Even The Huffington Post doesn’t seem too impressed:

“Mockery of Lieberman may be one of the few sticks left to brandish in the health care reform debate. However. MoveOn’s video seems more likely to make progressives feel better than to compel Democratic leadership to toughen up.”

MoveOn.org has also launched a campaign to get Lieberman out of office, and has raised its first million (in just two days).

But before they actually use the system to defeat Lieberman, they’re tenderizing him by distorting the issues, and turning him into a public laughingstock.

The above video really makes you wonder: who is their audience?

Socking it to Joe?
