The End of Checklist Liberalism | TPMCafe

It looks like the end of Joe Lieberman. It’s really none of my business what the voters of Connecticut decide, but what the pro-Lieberman (or anti-anti-Lieberman, in the locution some prefer) forces don’t understand is that opposition to Lieberman isn’t ideological.
