Joe Gandelman of The Moderate Voice has the lowdown:

Not a day goes by when there isn’t a new batch of news and blog stories detailing how Lieberman is being embraced by or seemingly embracing the Republican party.

His big problem: so many GOP party elites are in effect endorsing him by not embracing the GOP’s official candidate that in the eyes of his growing legion of critics he has become â€â€? in media eyes, at the very least â€â€? the defacto Republican candidate.

Again, I said so before in the post “The White House Endorses Ned Lamont”, I find the Republican’s backing of Lieberman to be completely disingenuous. You and I both know that if Lieberman had won the primary, Republicans would be showing no love for Lieberman. But given this opportunity, they see a chance to hand Ned Lamont a win and paint the Democrats weak on defense.

Joe, just a tip, but you would do well to stay as far away from the Repubs’ official or defacto endorsements as possible. Distance yourself from both parties. Run on a truly independent platform that gives Connecticut voters a true third way.

In short, show us something we haven’t seen in a while.

    Personally I think the more I learn about Lamont and Lieberman the more I hate them both more and more so I could care less who wins the race, one is too far left and he seems like a very lackluster person to be a representative of a whole state and the other just does too much butt kissing for me. Lieberman supporting a timetable just feels very hypocritcal also.

    That’s is the independent’s quandry.

    The democrats of the state wanted to make this a one-issue race, well then they are going to have to eat crow because it seems the republican voters are going to do so as well. Thats why they can back Lieberman.

    I’m not so sure Lieberman and others don’t have another card up their sleeves. Hate to think so but…

    Well, this would more easily happen if he actually was an independent. Joe Lieberman should not be the moderate/independent poster boy!
