Sen. Heinz-Kerry: Joe's a new Cheney

Quoth Jean-Francois Heinz-Kerry (who is rumored to have served in Vietnam):
Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., blasted a fellow Democrat, Sen. Joe Lieberman, for continuing his bid in the Connecticut Senate race despite a narrow loss to newcomer Ned Lamont in the Democratic primary earlier this month.

"I'm concerned that [Lieberman] is making a Republican case," Kerry told ABC News' "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" in an exclusive appearance.

Kerry accused the 2000 Democratic vice presidential candidate of "adopting the rhetoric of Dick Cheney," on the issue of Iraq.
Really...a "new Cheney"? Can anyone tell me where Cheney called for resignation of Don Rumsfeld like Joe just did? Why, if Joe's not careful, he's gonna damage those "Karl Rove lap dog" credentials the left bestowed upon him! Continuing:

"Joe Lieberman is out of step with the people of Connecticut," Kerry added, insisting Lieberman's stance on Iraq, "shows you just why he got in trouble with the Democrats there."
Actually, it would have been more accurate had Sen. Ketchup said that Joe was out of step with the Democrats of Connecticut. See, the plurality of CT voters are unaffiliated, which means they couldn't vote in the Democratic primary. These unaffiliated (and Republican) voters will be able to vote in the general election in November, and polls right now (subject to change, of course) show the independent Joe ahead of the Democrat Ned the Nutbar 53% - 41%.
