Granted that sensitivity to nuance has not been a hallmark of the Lieberman campaign thus far, someone at his campaign website really should have thought to ask Mr. Amann (the CT House Speaker) for a different quote.
Perhaps they were too busy working out the cutting edge (sorry, up-to-date) red, white and blue stars and stripes design.

"While it's design is very much—"
Aggh! My eyes! It burns, it burns!
Re-electing Joe Lieberman to the Senate should be a no-brainer
That can be taken two ways. In addition to the intended way, it could also imply that if you vote to re-elect Lieberman, you have no brain. :-)
Seeing Joe's deterioration is a source of genuine pain to me, because he's one of the only pols in Washington that I've actually met, along with his wife and daughter. His shameful truckling to the GOP is as terrible to me as watching, say, a friend turn into an alcoholic who thinks everyone else has a problem.
Lieberman reminds so much of Henry Gibson from the old Laugh-In show that I always expect him to walk out in front of the cameras carrying an enormous paper flower and recite silly poems.
Come to think of it, that would be an improvement...
Senator Lieberman's signature is PATHETIC.
The 'J' looks like he was being stuck with a pin by his constituents on election day.
The 'Lie' part of his last name is linked to a 'ber' which must be part of the word 'abberant.'
And according to his signature, there is no 'man' in Lieberman.
That isn't news to anyone.
Interesting. There's no link to tell Joementum to, um, f--k off. Or to just get it over with and register as a Repug.
The fact that politicians get skewered by knee-jerk, hard-core partisans for daring to ever find commong ground with "the enemy" (and to said partisans, they truly ARE the enemy even at a personal level) is yet another example of how screwed up and intractably partisan and bitter politics have become, and another example of how slavish devotion to party politics is ruining us.
One would expect one our senior senators to know the proper use of "it's". The possessive of "it" is "its". Granted his support of the Iraq war could be viewed as greater transgression but the "it" is easier to fix.
Is that what Joe Lieberman has been doing? Finding "commong ground with the enemy"
I though he was trying to get knocked up with a Bush baby!
You know, first there's close dancing with Bush, which leads to frenching Bush on a public stage, and it climaxes with the horizontal mambo in an Airforce One bathroom.
9 months later a Leiberbush is born.
