Anti-Lieberman site surfaces

State Rep. Pat Jehlen, D-Somerville, has forwarded a pretty hilarious anti-Joe Lieberman presidential campaign site in her monthly email newsletter [].The site has a slew of funny links promoting the owner’s view that Lieberman is basically a Republican ["A new kind of Democrat. The Republican kind."]
"I never imagined that, one day, I would have the opportunity to run for President of the United States and defend the privileges of the rich and powerful," Lieberman hysterically writes in the mock intro.
One link has directions on how to fold a dollar bill into a GOP origami elephant while another jokes that Lieberman can’t talk about why he supports a potential war with Iraq because he deems his views as "classified." Still another link criticizes Lieberman for taking on media violence while promoting real death and violence with higher military budgets and war, while explaining his defense of the insidious missile defense system.
A search on the Network Solutions Web site DOES NOT reveal the owner or creator of the site, which is interesting since almost every other owner can be found via such a search.
