The Kiss Float Makes the NY Times!

(I wonder if "Dad" realized just how famous his artwork would become? (note: picture added to diary, not from NY Times artcle) - promoted by Neal Fink)

"The kiss that President Bush appeared to plant on Mr. Lieberman’s cheek after last year’s State of the Union address has become an infamous image for Mr. Lamont’s supporters, who, before the rally, drove by several times with a papier-mâché float depicting that event."

Saw The Float (4.00 / 1)
As I arrived in town on my moped,  I spied the float up ahead, caught up, and followed behind it for a while. You should have seen the looks on the people as it passed by. Jaw-dropping amazement, pointing it out to friends, etc. I laughed so hard, riding the litttle popper was getting dicey...

Dad, that thing is gonna be the cause of some minor fender-benders someday!

Not all Lamont supporters were stripped of their tickets (0.00 / 0)
Several thousand people attended the Lieberman rally, though a few dozen seats at the theater were empty. Not all of those who attended, however, were convinced by Mr. Clinton.

“It’s time for Democrats to stand up for true principles and stop caving to conservatives,” said John Szablewicz, a lifelong Democrat from the nearby town of Woodbury. He said he would vote for Mr. Lamont but was eager to see Mr. Clinton.

“When we try to be like Republicans,” Mr. Szablewicz said, “that’s when we lose.”

Unfortunately the NYT (4.00 / 1)
is  no longer worth reading.The NYT News and opinion pages are so fraudulent as to be a worldwide joke.

the streak of the new york times so far for ct politics is: they refuse to mention the name of this goddamn blog in their blog article about destefano, and then they endorse the wrong guy.

if they had some balls they'd show a pic of the kissmobile. but wait it's two fake guys kissing you can't show that!!!

ugh, i'm so fed up with nyt. i gave up my subscription years ago.

"A giant papier-mache statue of George W. Bush kissing Lieberman on the cheek—the Senator's famed Britney-Madonna moment, which transpired after Bush finished his 2005 State of the Union address—sat on the back of a nearby pickup truck, thoughtfully provided by a group called Connecticut Bloggers. There was no mention from Lieberman of the elephant in the truck, no explanation of his alliance with the President over the war in Iraq...

...I could never imagine myself voting against him. But he was profoundly wrong about the most important issue of the past five years—and now, at the very least, he has to acknowledge that there's an elephant sitting in the pickup truck."
