Oh, Now I Get It Joe

My good buddy Joe Lieberman explains all in this letter. So, he's worried about low voter turnout, he's worried that Ned will "write bigger and bigger checks" (wouldn't that lead to higher turnout, if successful?), and he's worried because he knows his position on Iraq is untenable to progressives. He's right to be worried, but he's wrong if he thinks this is truly a one-issue race.

Joe was happy to run six years ago for two offices, risking one of Connecticut's Senate seats in order to have a cushion to fall back on. Now, he wants to do it again. Anyone who can't see him as the opportunist he's always been has been blinded, or dulled into a semi-conscious state by his voice.
