Rudy won't speak tonight for the Republicans, but Joe Lieberman will. I've been very critical of Dangerstein for a long time now and I caught up with Dan Gerstein at Salon's Party Saturday night in Denver last week. I watched him mingle with the crowd and knew I had to question him about Joe since nobody else in the media will. I walked over and asked him when he was going on TV to denounce Joe Lieberman---since he's a traitor to his Democratic roots and is attacking Obama. (Gerstein is one of the major reasons why Lieberman held on to win after he lost the Dem primary in '06.)

He wouldn't talk to me on the record, but I thought it was important that somebody confronted him personally on his Lieberman issue so I agreed to stay off the record. I can't tell you what he said, but I was not kind in my demands. We had a long and animated discussion. The main reason he goes on TV is because he was the face of Lieberman. And since Joe is trashing Obama and will speak tonight at their convention I thought it was his obligation if he is indeed a "democratic consultant," or whatever they call them now to forcefully speak out about the traitor that Joe is.

Here's your chance Dan. Go for it.
