Does It Make A Sound (Die)?

To all you Connecticut people who enjoy Jere's blog--a political message from his Mom.

One of the largest donations ($60,000) to Joe Lieberman was from Sempra Energy, a company that owns and operates tankers carrying liquid gas; offshore complexes that turn the liquid into energy gas; and that lays the pipelines. The Cheney energy bill that Joe voted for (the only Democratic member of Congress from New England to do so) included the building of a liquid natural gas complex called “Broadwater” to be floated in the middle of Long Island Sound. The complex will be far larger than the Titanic and at night it’ll be lit up by tens of thousands of light bulbs. The whole operation will be more flammable than lighter fluid; if there is an accident or if a little boat the size of the one that blew a hole in the USS Cole crashes a terrorist’s load of explosives into Broadwater, innocent people will die, and Long Island Sound could well end up a dead sea. Joe brags that he opposes Broadwater but he voted for its creation and took $60,000 from the company that will build it. Joe must go.

A valid point. But Lamont? No experience.....Joe has done so much for this state we love, and he has my vote. And that's what the process is all about. Everyone, if they so choose, has a say in what will happen Tuesday. Thanks Mary Ann.
 
Joe, really? Shudder. He's just George Bush with a baggy Leiberman costume on.
 
I kinda thought a man who had "done so much for the state" would respect the wishes of said state's voters, and retire.
 
Thomas Jefferson had no experience either, to say nothing of the President Bush. (The governor of Texas is in office for 4 months every other year.) Also, Peter, we've got all the experience we need with your senior senator, Chris Dodd.
When you lose your party's primary, you support the winner. If the Democrats win the senate and the house and give Joe the chairmanship of his committee instead ofthe ranking Democrat, I will... I don't know what I'll do yet.
And New Yorkers, Long Island Sound is in your back yard, too. Mayor Bloomberg sold you guys out.
Thanks, Jere, for posting that for me.
