MoveOn.org Raises $1 Million to Fight Joe Lieberman

By

Left-wing activist group MoveOn.org says it has raised $1 million in two days from its network of outraged donors who are irate that Lieberman flip-flopped on the Medicare buy-in, a policy he not long ago firmly supported. How are they going to use that money to get him? Not by waiting around to support a primary challenger in his Connecticut reelection campaign, which they figure he could never win anyway. No, they're launching a mildly mean ad campaign. Involving unfunny sock puppets! That'll teach him, libs. You spend that money wisely.
