It's worse than CRACK! It's like watching a slow-motion car wreck, or the Hindenberg crashing in flames. I just can't take my eyes off it!
And I've come to a troubling conclusion:
(Trust me, Star Wars nerds and Farkers are laughing their asses off right now!)
Yes, the Lieberman masterminds have come up with a sure-fire way to distract us bloggers and netizens from concentrating on the real problems facing Joe's policies. By putting up a blog that promises healthy and informative debate, they draw in people by the hundreds.
But soon, it becomes apparent that there IS no discussion. The pattern is for them to post a rude article and sit back and watch all the righteous liberals work themselves into a frenzied state of indignation.
My god, it's BRILLIANT!
By keeping all these people outraged and frustrated, the masterminds (hiding behind an obvious pseudonym "Eric Blankenbaker") have managed to suck a huge amount of energy out of the lefty blogosphere, and concentrate it within their own website.
Where they will doubtless find a way to harness it and use it for their own neferious purposes.
Oh, what will these evil masterminds come up with next?
(Besides calling the Democratic Nominee for Senate the "Nedster", that is?)
Here's some actual blog comments from Joe's wonderfully enticing blog. Keep in mind that I intend to stick with my pledge to not directly involve myself over on Joe's blog, and will only comment upon it here.
I'm starting to get irked. We were promised debate. In this thread only we have made excellent, articulate, rebuttals to your ridiculous Republicanesque spinning. WHy aren't you coming down into the comments section, Eric, and giving your side some substance?And another thing of note in Joe's new website...the calandar.
Oh that's right. You've got nothing.

I'm assuming these comments have been set up as a deliberate troll for anti-lieberman commentary, and in that they are succeeding beyond expectations.
But wouldn't you think that if joe had *any* legitimate supporters, they, too, would take advantage and come to the defense of their chosen candidate?
These comment sections seem to belie the claims of the lieberman campaign to widespread support in Connecticut--at least among the computer literate. Maybe there aren't that many such folks in Connecticut...

Lieberman's staff only releases information on public events where the Senator might come in actual contact with voters (and by "contact", I mean within a reasonable radius for a conversation to occur) just a day in advance.
Not much time for a Lieberman fan like myself to arrange to stop by and say "Hello" to my favorite "non-combatant" (Joe's own words) Junior Senator.
I wonder why that is?
