The Left vs. Lieberman: ‘By Any Means Necessary’

by Robert Stacy McCain | December 14, 2009 2:39 pm

Not content to smear Sen. Joe Lieberman[1] for his opposition to ObamaCare, now the Left is attacking Lieberman’s wife, Hadassah[2]. Both Jane Hamsher[3] and DailyKos[4] are trying to get Mrs. Lieberman purged from her job at a breast cancer charity.

Those who remember the way the “progressive netroots community” assailed Joe Lieberman in 2006 will understand why I’ve dubbed them “The Ned Lamont Party[5].”: The Left is determined to have its way whatever the consequences, an attitude expressed by the slogan common among radical protesters: “By Any Means Necessary.” Their influence, pushing: an unpopular policy: agenda and attacking any Democrat who: opposes them, could do a lot to bring an early end to the era of Hope and Change.

What next? Will the Left smear Lieberman as a racist? Recalling Harry Reid’s absurd slander[6] of Republicans last week, the American Spectator‘s Shawn Macomber remarks[7]:

[P]olitical history does make it tough to tar Lieberman as a racist, illiterate, tea-bagging militiaman . . .

Never say never. We’re talking about the people who thought that millionaire: Ned Lamont could be elected to the Senate as a “populist.”
