Weird news

I don’t really understand this, but it’s certainly funny:

STAMFORD The Connecticut for Lieberman Party, the minor political party created by Sen. Joe Lieberman for his successful independent bid for re-election, has been taken over by a longtime critic of the senator.

Fairfield University political science professor John Orman’s takeover has been recognized by Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz.

Orman is the sole member of the party and filed paperwork with Bysiewicz’s office naming himself chairman. The state officials accepted Orman’s takeover and his bylaws which limit membership to critics of the senator and anyone named Lieberman.

“If someone wanted to challenge it, they’d have to go to court,” Ted Bromley, a state elections attorney for Bysiewicz’s office said Tuesday.

Even the party he created and named after himself has turned against him. What is this world coming to?

    Yeah, it’s a hilarious story. Lieberman formed a “party” so he could run as an independent in the general. Only the party really was a front — there were no real members, no officers, no nothing. So this Lieberman critic realizes a golden opportunity, “joins” the party — now with one member — elects himself its chairman, and makes it into a beautiful anti-Lieberman PR opportunity.
