Connecticut Senate race is a toss-up.

Ned Lamont has pulled ahead of Joe Lieberman in the Quinnipiac poll meaning that, if Joe wins the Democratic primary, there is no turning back from accusations of voting fraud and conspiratorial Diebold machines.

Who will save Joe from ignominious defeat?

Lieberman's decision to collect signatures does not mean that he is giving up on his campaign to win the primary. The latest evidence? Former President Bill Clinton, a beloved figure among liberals, will campaign for Lieberman next Monday. The two men have known each other since 1970 when Clinton worked on Lieberman's campaign for the state Senate.
Democrats love that guy!

How dare Lieberman accept help from outside Connecticut? It's... it's... downright Lamontian!

For a guy who still weeps about the imaginary Panhandlegate "scandal" of 2000, the dismissive Diebold quip is wildly disingenuous.

(Although, if Diebold touch-screen fraud ever does help elect Joe Lieberman, it'll be the smoking gun that he's no longer a Democrat.)

John Hopkins University's Information Security Institute on Diebold: "This voting system is far below even the most minimal security standards applicable in other contexts."

An analysis funded by the state of Maryland: "The system, as implemented in policy, procedure, and technology, is at high risk of compromise.”

Pennsylvania's electronic voting system examiner: "It's the most severe security flaw ever discovered in a voting system."

Internal Diebold memo: "Do not offer damaging opinions of our systems, even when their failings become obvious."

A Diebold spokesman rebutting the criticism: "You're basically assuming a premise where you have some evil and nefarious election officials who would sneak in and introduce a piece of software. I don't believe these evil elections people exist."

Oh, those tinfoil U.S. states! Oh, those moonbat research universities! When will they ever learn that accountability hurts America?
