In a post on TAPPED, Robert Kuttner writes:
The Republican story on
and Connecticut , repeated a little too credulously by much of the press, is that the Dems shoved aside their moderate incumbent, Joe Lieberman, while the Republicans wisely kept theirs, Lincoln Chafee. But hold on a minute. Didn't voters in both states' primaries choose the guy who is opposed to Bush's Iraq War? Rhode Island
I'd just note that Bush lost Rhode Island by more than 20 points in 2004, so the fact that an incumbent liberal Republican with the backing of the RNC won a primary doesn't mean much in terms of being a referendum on Iraq.
