Welna: "...some label him Senator Fuddy Duddy-others call him President Bush's favorite Democrat. On the other hand Con. House Republican Christopher Shays, says he intends to vote for Leiberman who's more popular among State Republicans than Democrats---Lieberman's broad smile vanishes when he's told other Democrats are calling him Republican Light..

Lieberman: This is one of the big lies that the people against me are spreading and I'm not going to let them get away with it.

I don't know Joe, all we are doing is taking a look at your record. You're the one who sided with the GOP over Terri Schiavo. You're the one who said this:

"Lieberman said he believes hospitals that refuse to give contraceptives to rape victims for "principled reasons" shouldn't be forced to do so. "In Connecticut, it shouldn't take more than a short ride to get to another hospital," he said.

Time's Michael Ware returned to the US just long enough to share this with us:

"I and some other journalists had lunch with Senator Joe Lieberman the other day and we listened to him talking about Iraq. Either Senator Lieberman is so divorced from reality that he's completely lost the plot or he knows he's spinning a line. Because one of my colleagues turned to me in the middle of this lunch and said he's not talking about any country I've ever been to and yet he was talking about Iraq, the very country where we were sitting."
