NOW, with Big Balls

It's ironic that the organization with the biggest balls in this country is a group of women. Today, the National Organization for Women became the first group to endorse Ned Lamont for Senate. Many important Democrats and political organizations have expressed support for Ned, but NOW is the first group with the cajones to stand up to Old Joe Lieberman.

I was at the announcement today in Hartford with video camera in tow. Thanks to CTBob for lending me his camera and editing the footage. Also on display at the press conference were CTBob's brilliant maps (scroll down to May 4, there don't seem to be permalinks) directing women in need of emergency contraception to a local hospital that might actually provide this service. When Joe Lieberman stated, in support of Catholic hospitals that didn't want to provide emergency contraception, that "another hospital is always just a short cab-ride away" he drove the final nail in the coffin for support from any women's groups.

So hats-off to NOW for the awesome courage to stand up to Joe Lieberman and the Democratic Party Brats. Kudos to Jane Hamsher over at FireDogLake for her pivotal role in securing this endorsement.

Here's the video. YouTube kind of sucks, so if the video gets stuck, press pause, wait for it to cache a bunch and the press play again.
