Why are guys like Bob Perry running ads saying that Ned Lamont is a "tax-hiking liberal" on behalf of Joe Lieberman, who gets an "F" from the National Taxpayers Union, when there's a guy in the race — Alan Schlesinger, a Republican — who truly believes in lower taxes and smaller government?

Because it's all bullshit and in the end, they believe in nothing except being Karl Rove's bitches, that's why. 

An obedient media compliantly ignores Schlesinger, who beat Joe Lieberman like a drum today in the YouTube above by CTBlogger. You would think the Lieberman4Lieberman party was really important instead of Line Five, Party of One.
