(A reminder about how today's endorsement highlights an important difference between Ned Lamont and Senator Lieberman - promoted by spazeboy)

Ned Lamont is holding a press conference on Friday to accept the endorsement of Michael Schiavo.  Relive one of our state's more embarrassing moments by watching Joe Lieberman as he joined the religious right and Republican opportunists on the Terri Schiavo case.

Thanks for upping the video to Nedheads, Mike.

Any other video available? (0.00 / 0)
If anyone can find the full footage of this appearance, it woudl be even better.  About 45 seconds before this clip starts, Russert refers to what Shays said about federal intervention in this case, mentioning theocracy.  It's a really important part of the whole story, if anyone can find it out on the tubes.

This part is the really good part that is missing from the above clip: (0.00 / 0)
MR. RUSSERT:  Senator Lieberman, your Republican colleague from Connecticut in the House, Christopher Shays, had this to say.  "This Republican Party of Lincoln has become a party of theocracy.  ...  There are going to be repercussions from this vote [on Schiavo's constitutional rights].  There are a number of people who feel that the government is getting involved in their personal lives in a way that scares them."

You agree with that?

SEN. JOSEPH LIEBERMAN, (D-CT):  I don't.  But that's a very credible and respectable opinion for Chris to take.  See, I think--and Chris was there on the floor of the House, so maybe he heard in the debate some things that I didn't hear following it from a distance.

Lieberman does NOT believe that the government is getting too involved in people's personal lives.  'Nuff said.
