Wait a Sec...

Is Chuck Schumer seriously going to ignore the Connecticut primary and use Democratic money to support Joe Lieberman's increasingly likely run as an independent?

As Digby so ably points out, why even bother running primaries if you aren't going to abide by them? Does anybody seriously think that they're going to get around the anger in the Democratic base by playing these sorts of games? It goes against the very foundations of American democracy.

(Not quite as much as, say, calling primary voters "Democratic terrorists", but it's pretty goddamned bad.)
