First, the Journal Inquirer reports that Manchester's Democratic Town Committee is planning to hold a special meeting to "decide whether to send Lieberman's office a formal letter stating its displeasure and opposition to the senator's stance." In other words, a local Democratic committee is considering formally rebuking the Senator - a potential telltale sign that such anger could be building throughout the state. "[Lieberman's behavior] is discouraging as a Democrat," said one at an earlier meeting. "If you want to be a Republican, then switch over your affiliation and run as a Republican."
Also today, the New York Times reports that "Former Gov. Lowell P. Weicker Jr. on Monday criticized Senator Joseph I. Lieberman's continued support of the war in Iraq and said that if no candidate challenged the senator on the issue in the 2006 election, he would consider running." Weicker, an independent, said, "When you've become the president's best friend on the war in Iraq, you should not be in office, especially if you're in the opposing party. I'm going to do everything I can to see that Joe Lieberman does not get a free pass."
On top of all this was last week's announcement by Moveon.org that it would consider supporting a challenge to Lieberman. In other words, there may be a perfect storm developing against Lieberman. And the more he continues to shill for the Republicans, the more that storm is going to intensify.
