Lieberman and Farrakhan

What's Lieberman got to do with Louis Farrakhan? Jane Hamsher reports Lieberman's latest campaign tricks and Joe Conason connects the history. Jane also reminds us via Joe Klein:

Rove has shown a positive genius for organizing campaigns around poisonous trivia. He will question the patriotism of Democrats (and, once again, be aided by those on the noisome left who believe that the U.S. is a malignant, imperialistic force in the world). He will deploy an ugly, stone-throwing distortion of Christian "values," especially against those Democrats who choose not to discriminate against homosexuals. And if things get really desperate, he will play the race card, as Republicans have ever since they sided against the civil rights movement in the 1960s.
Well, we knew Lieberman was one of Bush's favorite Republican Lites. Click the links if your stomach can stand the hypocrisy. What a world.
