NO UNION BUG ON LIEBERMANS "

Marion couldn't wait to hand Trueblue one of the Brand New "Hug Buttons" picturing Joe Lieberman and Bill Clinton hugging which the Liebermam Campaign debuted today.This Button was created as a way to counter the Now famous "Kiss Button" which inspired the "Kiss Float" which is Follwing the Liebermans Bus tour today.To Everyones amazement THERE IS NO UNION BUG ON THE HUG BUTTON.
Heres a message for John Olsen,The AFL-CIO and every union member in CT:
Joe Lieberman,His Staff and his Campaign just gave you the Biggest F*#K You anyone who runs as a Democrat can. They think so little of you and the entire Labor Movement that having a union Shop make their "Hug Buttons" wasn't important enough to even think about.Your endorsement was the only thing that mattered,not your workers not your families and not the Quality of work union workers guarentee.
PS-Every Dump Joe Bumper sticker and "Kiss Button" has a union Bug. WHY? Because it was that important to us that we made sure of it.
In a campaign of mistakes, this is the biggest mistake imaginable. Every campaign in a union heavy state uses Union shops for ALL lit. Not using a union shop is unimaginable.
How in the fuck could the Lieberman campaign, with their paid staff and DC consultant make a mistake that a local councilman wouldn't. When I did campaigns, the first thing you did was check the lit for the bug. No bug, you didn't use it.
It seems like a small thing, but it's not a mistake a pro makes. Never. In a union state, you use a union shop. ALWAYS.
I will say this: Lieberman is in massive trouble. He's got amateurs working for him. Pure amateurs. They hired people, but it's real late to hire good people. And he didn't hire them.
It's not the thing political reporters notice, but if you've ever worked on a campaign, this is one of the main things you take away. No lit drop goes without a union bug.
