Apparently D-Triple-C chairman Rep. Rahm “Twinkletoes” Emanuel is singing from Daily Kos’s songsheet given his quote in the New York Times today about the Connecticut race: “This shows what blind loyalty to George Bush and being his love child means.”
Kos is now calling for Lieberman to be stripped of his committee assignments. Sens. Reid and Schumer have officially dumped Lieberman, pinning his loss to the support of the war. Reid, we are reliably told, has again reached out to former President Bill Clinton to intercede on the party’s behalf to talk Lieberman out of an independent run.
