Even though I really should concentrate on Swedish politics right now, I just have to make a short comment on the Daily Show programme that you can find at The Daily. It's about the sensational loss of former vice presidential candidate Joe Lieberman, caused by Democratic voters detest of the Lieberman-supported war on Iraq.
After having lost the election for being the Democratic nominee for the US Senate in Connecticut, Lieberman declared that there will be a second race. He will run as an independent. The show talks about Lieberman as a stalker - when people say they've had enough of you, you still want to date Tuesday. V funny.
As Daraka mentions, there are possibilities Lieberman now will be supported by the Republicans.
That's the way it goes, folks. Right-wingers in left-wing parties who don't listen to their base go ahead supporting right-wing policies and politicans. Eventually people get fed up and throw the right-wingers out. Then they show their real colours. We could all learn one or two lessons from that.
Read Daily Kos for a very interesting piece on the implications for the US elections in November. People are fed up with the war, even in the US.
Neo-conservatism is on it's way out, let's make sure Social Democracy is on its way in!
Update: Joe Trippi, who was the man behind Howard Dean's presidential campaign, writes on Lieberman's loss in The Guardian with the title Power to the people - read it!
