While Sen. Joe Lieberman was traipsing around Iraq and spooning John McCain, a Connecticut college professor was engineering a takeover of Lieberman's third party - a takeover that has officially succeeded.
Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz has recognized Fairfield University professor John Orman's takeover of the Connecticut for Lieberman Party and its bylaws limiting membership to critics of the senator and anyone named Lieberman.
"If someone wanted to challenge it, they'd have to go to court," said Ted Bromley, a state elections attorney for Bysiewicz's office.
Guys, you're dealing with Joe Lieberman. Expect lots of whining about "partisanship" and exactly zero action.
