WASHINGTON -- Senator John F. Kerry announced yesterday that he will support whoever wins next month's Democratic Senate primary in Connecticut, despite the decision by incumbent Senator Joseph I. Lieberman to run as an independent candidate if he loses the primary. The announcement was made a day after a similar declaration by Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, who, like Kerry, is considering a presidential run in 2008.

But unlike Clinton, Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee -- all of whom pledged to support Lieberman in the primary -- Kerry is declining to choose between Lieberman and his Democratic challenger Ned Lamont, said Amy Brundage , a spokesman for Kerry's political operation.

Kerry knows supporting Liebermann will kill him among the moonbat voters.

Hillybutt said that she would support whoever won the primary. As always, she covers her butt and that is no easy feat.

Is that really his opinion or is that just what his CIA hat is forcing him to say?

Jewish voters take note. Which party is more likely to defend Israel?

That's what's so amazing about this turd... not only is he a sniveling poltroon masquerading as a Senator... but he has no clue as to how he is perceived by the masses. It's as if he gets all his input exclusively from the Globe and the Daily Kos.

America really dodged a bullet in 2004.

Just when you think the Democrat freakshow can't get any freakier, even freakier freaks show up. Keep the spotlight on 'em.

What is the chances of a Republican taking this seat? If Joe loses, then runs as an independent, can the Republican's win on a split vote?

Tell us Joe....Was it worth selling your soul for the V.P. slot? Was it worth selling out the military for the V.P. slot? Was it worth selling out your religion for the V.P. slot?
