If the friend of your enemy is Joe Lieberman, this seems to be true.
Apparently, no one can raise money for Democratic liberals like Joe Lieberman.
When the MoveOn.org Political Action Project found out that Lieberman was one of the hosts of a $3,000-a-person Washington fundraiser tonight for Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, the grass-roots, anti-war group pounced.
MoveOn has long been at odds with Lieberman, a strong backer of the war who won re-election last year as an independent. He has worked together with Collins for years as leaders of the Senate Homeland Security Committee.
The word went out from MoveOn Tuesday: Donate money to defeat Collins, who could face a tough re-election battle next year, it told members in an e-mail.
Within 24 hours, more than 5,600 members donated an average of $63 each, for a total of $355,000.
Not that we here at The Last Chance Democracy Café would ever say an unkind word about Joe Lieberman, but — snicker, snicker, ha, ha, hee, hee.
