Lieberman: Fox News Democrat

JG: And recepient of $10,000 from the Miami ultra-right


The numbers show Lieberman had a Fox habit, and kicked it cold turkey when he faced a primary challenge from the left.

The bad news keeps coming for Joe Lieberman. A Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday showed that challenger Ned Lamont has widened his lead over the incumbent in the Connecticut Democratic Senate primary to 13 points. Lamont, until just months ago a little-known Greenwich businessman, had first surged into the lead in the previous poll, released July 20.

Lamont seems to have gained traction with voters after his performance in a July 6 debate with Lieberman. The political neophyte traded barbs with the three-term senator on live television and didn't embarrass himself. Lamont, in fact, got off the most memorable line of the debate, snapping at Lieberman, "This is not Fox News, sir."
