Chafee Wins

Sphere: Related Content

Liberal Republican Lincoln Chafee hung on to win his primary in Rhode Island. His challenger was more conservative and Chafee has irked many Republicans but the party backed Chafee knowing that a loss by him meant a loss for the entire GOP.

Juxtapose that with the donks handling of Lieberman. Lieberman needed his party's support and at the crucial time it was needed most, they cut and ran on him. They were cowed by a few hundred idiots with lame blogs and an army of pseudo-intellectuals who took down the only good man left in their party. The Democratic party threw Lieberman under the bus and will now pay for doing it. Lieberman will win and his proclamation that he'll caucus with the donks may change if he can be lured by the GOP.

I'd rather have a liberal Chafee in the Senate than a liberal unknown Democrat. We know how Chafee will vote and we retain leadership. That's a trade-off I'm willing to make.
