For a new ad opposing Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., and his position on the public option, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee is reaching back to some recent history.

Specifically, the spot is a reference to the 2006 election, when Lieberman formed the "Connecticut for Lieberman"  party after losing the Democratic primary. Once the party's usefulness was at an end, he gave it up and his opponents took it over in order to have a little fun at his expense. This new ad takes the joke a little further, using the "Connecticut for Lieberman" name to argue that the senator's positions are more about him than about his constituents.
