Postscript Red Ned

A small note of personal gratification: Senator Joe Lieberman trounced the Greenwich Country Club, limousine liberal in the senatorial race in Connecticut.  Red Ned Lamont unsuccessfully spent quite a few million of the dollars he inherited from his great-grandfather, who was apparently the last decent Christian in a family that sold out to the false god of socialism.  He also was heavily backed by Hollywood stars and endorsed by the New York Times, all strong reasons to oppose him.

While there probably isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between the social policy views of Joe Lieberman and Red Ned, Senator Lieberman is a devout believer in God.

In his victory speech last night, almost the first words from Senator Lieberman were, “Praise God from whom all blessings flow.”  He went on to say that he hoped to conduct himself in a manner that would result in the greater glory of God.
