David & Goliath 

I'm not very knowledgeable about state politics in Connecticut, but I do know that Joe Lieberman has got to go, at least as long as he insists on acting like a member of the Republican wingnut faction while continuing to keep that D after his name. Joe, if you want to be honest and run as a Republican next time around, fine. Otherwise, just know that you've lost the support of the party you pretend to represent, and you won't gain the support of the GOP as long as you call yourself a Democrat because, well, c'mon. You just won't. Stop pretending. You're about as much of a Democrat as Richard Nixon.

But Kos points out the handwriting on the wall:
Staffers for Rep. Rosa Delauro of Connecticut floated a possible Lieberman primary challenge at a local party event last night. Now, it may very well have been an eager staffer fantasizing about such a challenge (Delauro would become a national figure and grass- and netroots hero overnight), or it could be a something a bit more orchestrated, a trial balloon of sorts amongst the types of people whose support would be critical for such a David v. Goliath challenge.
I, for one, would love to see Ms. Delauro sling that stone right into the middle of Lieberman's political forehead, and end his career as an elected official for good.
