Blaber News Proudly Endorses Joe Lieberman for US Senate

Blaber News is proud to endorse Joe Lieberman for the U.S. Senate, usually Blaber News sticks to local and State Government but due to the current circumstances we have felt compelled to voice our opinion on the 3-term senator. '' I can understand that some may be turned of by some of Senator Lieberman's pro-war stances but he is a good democratic senator, period. I think the democrats really need to stick together and get behind Lieberman for the good of the party, I am sure, well I know Mr. Lamont is a great guy but I think Mr. Lieberman is the better choice for our progressive agenda.
