Connecticut: Lieberman is a fake, no matter how you slice it...

The dialogue on Huffington Post about Lieberman's return to Washington is worth a glance--DC Senate Dems and Joe Lieberman :

Joe Lieberman is NOT running as an Independent. He is running under the rubric of a fake party which he had to make up, "Connecticut for Lieberman". Why people continuously make this error is a mystery to me - it gives Joe legitimacy that he does not have....
