Movement underway to draft Olbermann for Senate (Lieberman's seat)
Liberals want to draft Keith Olbermann to run for retiring Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman's (D) seat.
The ploy to coax the former MSNBC host into the Democratic Senate primary was hatched by activists attending a conference in Pennsylvania over the weekend.
Facebook and Twitter pages are already active and a website is expected to go up in the coming days.
"We’re using our full set of campaign tools but they won’t go active until we get a little downtime while we’re in D.C.," the blogger Stranded Wind wrote on Daily Kos.
I saw a few other news stories on this earlier today.
This is Stranded Wind's diary post about it:
I simply cannot express my delight at the prospect of an angry, ranting moonbat being elevated from the status of "generally ignored by Democrats in the hopes that he, like a bad Mariachi band, would eventually lose interest and wander away" to "the screeching moonbat public face of 'mainstream' Democrats everywhere."
