Joe Lieberman Death Watch, Day #3

Error in yesterday's Death Watch. Joe drops one other name in his press bio, that of the incumbent Senator he displaced in 1989, Lowell Weicker. But the bio fails to mention the innovative campaign tactic he pioneered that year: highlighting the number of Senate votes missed while ignoring whether it mattered, the percent of votes they cast, etc. He ran on poor attendance. Won. And now every Senator is so scared about their voting record, everybody votes on everything but for nothing. Quite the legacy. Why spoil it now?
